Emu Procussion
Maximum Percussion Module (1991)

 

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

percussion module

info RACKMOUNT MODULE single unit.
The main panel features 16 x 2 lines display, 4 push buttons and 1 data encoder. There are 2 different Procussions models available, just different design and scripts but technically they are just the same.


Back panel terminal connectors:
- Midi interface
- main outputs
- 4 AUX analog outputs.


 

 

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 holds up to 24 stacks assigned to keyboard zones - each layer can be read forward, forward or delayed.






edit
WAVETABLE the internal4 MB ROM is coded at 39 kHz / 16 bits resolution and contains 216 PCM samples. The Procussion wavetable is derived from classic Emulator III library is organized in 4 sample families :
- 140 PCM classic percussions
- 4 PCM basic waveforms (eg: sinewave)
- 21 PCM mathematical generated inharmonic waves
- 51 PCM digitally created pulse + FM waves.
CONVOLUTION special PCM waves from 132 to 135 are specially coded for SPATIAL CONVOLUTION process: a combination of a normal waveforms with a convolved reverbered one.

PEEFORMANCE machine handles 16 kits with individual settings:
- 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.

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.


EG procussion


lfo LFO a single oscillator (4 shapes: triangle, saw, sinewave and square) for each layer.
Main modulation destinations are:
- LFO 1 amplitude
- LFO 2 pitch.
Modulation can be assigned also to the matrix modulation (see below).

REVIEW "Samples are now quite old and programming could be tedious, however it could be interesting for sampling experimentation at fair price."
