Non-Superbooth 19 news coming from Australia. Pulse Synthesizers, a new Eurorack company has recently introduced Load Runner, a new granular sampler/synthesizer for the Eurorack format. It offers an engine with support for .wav files in 16 bit (mono/stereo) and up to 15 simultaneous grains.
Samples can be loaded via a USB drive into the internal memory and all parameters can be controlled by CV. A very cool new granular module in my opinion. Looking forward to checking it out. Stay tuned.
The Load Runner granular synthesizer allows you to load 16bit WAV files from USB flash drive into the modules internal memory and playback grains from those samples. The Selected sample is shown graphically on the LCD from which grains are randomly generated between the start and range lines controlled by front panel and CV.
Grain length density and pitch are also controlled via the front panel or CV. Three pitch modes are selectable via the settings menu. The grain amplitude envelope is selectable from 10 shapes. Recording of the module output to USB as a mono 16bit WAV file allows it to be reloaded into memory for granular playback.
There is also the ability to skip between samples using CV, i.e. sample up / down. Firmware updates will be possible via USB.
