Emu Procussion
Maximum Percussion Module (1991)

 

Rackmount expander derived from classic Proteus series based on percussives and drum samples.

There are 2 different Procussions models available, just different design and scripts but technically they are just the same.

info RACKMOUNT MODULE single rack unit.
The main panel features 16 x 2 lines display, 4 push buttons and 1 data encoder.



Back panel terminal connectors:
- Midi interface
- main signal outputs
- 4 AUX analog outputs (with insert sub)


 

 

editVOICE main CPU is a 16 bits Motorola MC 68000 manages 32 voices polyphony - relative DACs are Burr-Brown PCM56 same technology used in the EMU Proteus series.
A basic Procussion patch or stack is composed by 4 PCM samples layers then a kit contains up to 24 stacks assigned to keyboard zones - each layer can be read forward, forward or delayed.

WAVETABLE the internal 4 MB ROM is coded at 39 kHz / 16 bits resolution and contains 216 PCM samples derived from classic sampler dinosaur Emulator III library, re-organized in 4 sample families :

pcm - 140 PCM classic percussions
- 4 PCM basic waveforms (eg: sinewave)
- 21 PCM mathematical generated inharmonic waves
- 51 PCM digitally created pulse + FM waves


PCM waves from 132 to 135 are especially coded for SPATIAL CONVOLUTION process: a combination of a normal waveforms with a convolved reverbered one.

 



editPERFORMANCE machine handles 16 kits with individual settings:

emu procussion - volume gain
- stereo panning
- Midi channel
- zone map
- analog out
- hit velocity
- gate or trig mode (EG)


 

 

adsr ENVELOPE up to 2 EGs:
- EG1 amplitude 3 segments AHD with inverse slope switch
- EG2 pitch controls the pitch decay.

EG procussion Special RANDOM functions humanizes hihats for more realistic play using 2 settings:

- trig mode allows a volume EG to cycle through all its stages when note is received
- gate mode allows a volume envelope to cycle through its attack segment and hold stages when a MIDI note on command is received.



lfo LFO a single oscillator (4 shapes: triangle, saw, sinewave and square) for each layer.
Main modulation destinations are:

EG procussion - LFO 1 amplitude
- LFO 2 pitch

Modulation can be assigned also to the matrix modulation





fx MIDI MATRIX:
classic fuction routing by EMU, well-known to samplers.
