Rossum Electro-Music has announced the release of Software Version 2.0 for theirAssimil8orPhase Modulation Sampler Eurorack module.
Designed to provide a powerful, flexiblesampling engine for modular synthesis, theAssimil8or Multi-Timbral Phase ModulationSamplermodule is the latest incarnation ofDave Rossum’s decades-long pioneering ofaffordableprofessional sampling technology.Assimil8or 2.0 software brings a hostof powerfulnew features and major workflow enhancements.Taken together, they result in Assimil8or’s evolution into an even more powerfuland easy-to-use sampling module.
Assimil8or 2.0 software is a free download for current Assimil8or owners. It can be downloaded HERE.
Key newAssimil8or 2.0 features includeNewSound-on-Soundsampling modes: (100% feedback for limitless layering and -3dB feedback for gradual decaying).
Explode Sample(at both the channel and zone level) to divide a sample into 2 to 8 equal regions and automatically assign them to sequential channels or zones.
Chop Sample: Similar to Explode sample, but uses transients to determine the chop points.
CV Control of Mix Levels: The ability to voltage control a channel’s level in the mix output without affecting its individual output. There are two control modes: Normal for regular modulation, and Fader formix control.
New Zone Selection types:
–Advance– Each new trigger causes the next zone in numerical order to be selected.
–Random– Each new trigger causes a random zone in numerical order to be selected.
NewZone Voltage Balancing Options:5V, 10V, Chromatic Keyboard, and Major Scale
Zone Lock to temporarily lock a single zone for auditioning and editing Manual and Auto-Audition of card WAV files to streamline import operations.
Gate Delayto compensate for sequencer gate/trigger/CV timing anomalies.
Stereo Awareness: Graphic interface and editor improvements to make working with stereo channel pairs virtually automatic.
Preset Selection via CV: The ability to use assignable CV inputs to step forward and backward through a folder’s preset list.
Zone handling and editing improvements, especially with stereo samples
Variable horizontal zoomon the Sample Start/End Page and Loop Start/Length/End Page.
Sync Editingof sample and loop points (i.e, simultaneously set identical Loop Start and Sample Start or Loop End/Length and Sample End points).
Selection of Sampling Destination Channelby pressing and holding the Sampling Setup button and then one of the eight channel buttons. New Sampling Setup Zone Destination parameter ”Empty Zone” assigns the new sample to the next empty zone on the destination channel.
Load Folder Warning: The option to trigger a warning popup when loading a new folder to help avoid accidental overwriting of unsaved preset edits.The ability tocancel a folder loadin progress.
ASampling Pre-rollof 10 msec (to avoid the possibility of cutting off the very beginning of a sample)
Data Compatibility: Assimil8or V2.0 data is fully forward and backward compatible with Assimil8or V1.XX. (With the exception that the new zone selection types, if used, will load into V1.XX as type “Continuous’).
