Future Retro Transient Plus
Drum / Percussion / Sample Player
The Transient Plus is a sample-based percussion module for the Eurorack format. The Transient Plus can recreate individual drum voices or sound like an entire drum machine or loop is playing, morphing from rhythm to rhythm, or at times sound more like a synthesizer when re-triggering samples at audio rates, and creating other special effects. It's easy to use, introduces new ways to quickly sculpt your beats with endless possibilities, and... it sounds great!
Up to 256 User Instruments can be stored and loaded from the microSD card, and the Transient Plus will come loaded with the Original factory Instruments to get you going right out of the box, and to help you learn how to achieve certain results. Instruments can now be named, as well as backed up to a computer.
Up to 600 individual User samples (16 MB max total) can be loaded into the Transient Plus using the microSD card. Over 400 audio sample come preinstalled with the Original factory sound set. These samples focus on classic drum machines and modern analog percussive sounds. There are two voices to play these samples, and sample selection for each voice can be modulated with things like knobs, CV's, or random values. While internal processing of these sounds is all 16 bit resolution, a 12 bit DAC is used to add more vintage character. Additional factory sound sets can also be purchased and installed in your Transient Plus, or users are free to create their own custom sound sets.
The Transient Plus now allows changing the playback speed of samples from +1 to -5 octaves from the original recorded pitch. Playback speed can be modulated by numerous modulation sources. Ring modulation can also be applied to alter the perceived pitch and harmonics of a sound.
The sample Mod selection allows different combinations for samples to be Amplitude or Ring modulated, by periodic waveforms, envelope shapes, or other sample waveforms. It is also possible to apply two of these processes simultaneously to a single sample.
The Trig In jack accepts a wide range of trigger sources (gates, oscillators, LFO's, even audio), to play sounds in the Transient. Two CV inputs allow external control voltages to modulate or modify parameters. And of course the Audio Out provides the final audio output. There are two CV attenuator knobs to scale each CV input source, and two more knobs K1 and K2 that can be assigned to control multiple parameters simultaneously. These K1 and K2 knobs allow you to basically morph between different modulation amounts for various parameters. And finally a Parameter control is used to navigate through the parameters, and adjust parameter values.
