Get a hold of yourself; ALM has upgraded Pam’s to Pamela’s Pro Workout. It comes with many more features, upgraded hardware and a new display to keep your rack in time.
Pamela’s Pro Workout
Pam gets everywhere. She maintains and manipulates clocks all over Eurorack armed with just 8 CV outputs and a pair of leg warmers. Pamela’s Workout is compact and full of all the things you need for generating patterns, clocks, divisions and time-related utilities. But now Busy Circuits has decided to bump up the feature set and give Pams a whole new colour display.
The way it works is easy enough. You have 8 outputs that can be any of the features from the module. You get a nice big yellow Start/Stop button and a clickable encoder for selecting things and also changing parameters. People generally consider it to be simple to use for a menu-driven multi-function module. Also the new high-resolution colour display is going to help with navigation and being able to see at a glance which thing the module is doing. The Scope mode is just what you need to see your modulations.
In terms of features, it’s a clock with a tempo from 10-303BPM. Pam’s can multiply and divide that clock to ridiculous degrees. It can output all sorts of waveforms as LFOs or envelopes, ratchets to randomisation. It has extensive Euclidean, probability and beat-based looping for pattern creation. And you can push it off-grid and mix up output modulations. It supports the Axon-1 expander to add 4 more CV inputs to the existing 4 CV inputs. These can be assigned to any internal parameter. Apparently, more expanders are on the way.
Pamela’s Pro Workout is undoubtedly the ultimate clock-based utility module. I’ve resisted the urge to buy one until this very moment because, well, it’s just a fancy clock right? But finally, I’ve decided I need a professional Pam’s in my life.
