Rossum EM boggle us again by packing an enormous amount of functionality into a 16HP Eurorack module and call it a Mob of Emus – what’s it all about?
Mob of Emus
Catchy name and the subheading of Polyfunctional Harmonic Sextet really rolls off the tongue too. It is 6 channels of modulation, noise and stuff that you can use in any combination for doing things like generating waveforms, LFOs, sample & holds, triggers, patterns, noise, oscillations and quantization. Got it?
Each channel can be programmed to be any of the things it can do. You can then control all of them at once using the “Hex Mode” macro-control layer.
Or, if you want something more familiar then you could use the harmonic control structure to generate tich additive tones and timbres that fall into low-frequency modulation waves and flow into intricate patterns of polyrhythmic complexity.
Maybe a video would help:
Oh good, that’s all straight forward then. I imagine it’s the sort of module that you’ll know if it’s something you need.
They say that Mob of Emus can operate as the heart of an almost unlimited variety of patches and with all the inputs, outputs, options, possibilities and 8 knobs it invites and rewards experimentation.
Mob of Emus should be available at the end of the month.
