Future Retro Transient (v1), USED
This item is used, has been fully tested and is guaranteed to be working.12-bit Vintage-Character Percussion Module
The Transient is a percussion module for the Eurorack format. The Transient 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 retriggering 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 did we mention... it sounds great too!
More than 250 preset Instruments are built into the Transient to get you going right out of the box, and to help you learn how to achieve certain results. There are also 40 User locations to store your own custom Instrument settings.
Over 400 audio sample provide the foundation of sound in the Transient. 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.
A unique architecture in the Transient allows these digital samples to have similar sound characteristics to what you would expect from analog drum machines or synthesizers, and natural sounds. Natural sounds never repeat in exactly the same way, and the Transient achieves similar results by altering the phase and amplitude of samples.
Percussion instruments typically have a very limited, if any, ability to change their pitch. So instead of changing the playback speed of samples (as most sound modules do), Ring modulation can be applied to alter the perceived pitch and harmonics of a sound.
