remember my (dreams of) New Products in 2016 post? Looks like the one about a eurorack sampler is going to come true, thanks to Dave Rossum, genius of Emu origins…
Meet the Assimil8or Multi-Timbral Phase Modulation Sampler
And what an awesome feature set:
Eight-channel multi-timbral operation. Each channel will be available from its own independent output as well as appearing in the stereo mix output.
Superb 24-bit A/D and D/A conversion.
Mono or stereo sampling. Channels can be configured as eight mono voices, four stereo voices, or any combination. (Well, any combination that adds up to eight).
Unique timbral capabilities with the ability to phase modulate samples by external analog signals or by other samples (a first, we believe).
Variable sample fidelity with independently selectable sample rate and bit depth.
Real-time CV control of bit depth.
Extensive sample manipulation and looping capabilities.
Sample scrubbing under CV control.
One-shot or gated sample playback with variable release time in gated mode.
Gate/trigger inputs and CV inputs for each sample that can be assigned independently for each channel to virtually any sample parameter. Examples include:Pitch, Level, Bit Depth, Phase Modulation, Pan, Scrub, Sample Start, Sample Length, Loop Start, Loop Length, Release Decay (for gated sounds)
A front panel accessible SD card for sample and preset storage.
ASSIMIL8OR will be available this Fall – more info here
Internal sample memory of 160 seconds (at max sample rate)
Sample-rate: 24-bit, 96khz
