Rossum Electro-Music Assimil8or - Multi-Timbral Phase Modulation Sampler

Designed to provide a powerful and flexible sampling engine for modular synthesis, the Assimil8or Multi-Timbral Phase Modulation Sampler module is the latest incarnation of Dave Rossum's decades-long pioneering of affordable professional sampling technology.

Assimil8or provides eight independent channels of sampling with sound quality that can range from extremely hi-fi to low fi, all with extensive real-time CV control.


•           Eight channel multi-timbral operation. Each channel will be available from it's own independent output as well as appearing in the stereo mix

•           Superb 24-bit A/D and D/A conversion

•           Mono or stereo sampling. Channels can be configured as eight mono voices, four stereo voices or any combination. (Well, any combination that adds up to eight)

•           The ability to assign up to 8 samples to each channel and select between them in real time via CV

•           DC coupling through the signal path for sampling of control voltages

•           Unique timbral capabilities with the ability to phase modulate samples by external analog signals or by other samples (a first, we beieve)

•           Variable sample fidelity with independently selectable sample rate and bit depth

•           Real-time CV control of bit depth

•           Real-time CV control of aliasing (from virtually none to lots)

•           Extensive sample manipulation and looping capabilities

•           Sample scrubbing under CV control

•           One-shot or gated sample playback with variable attack and release times

•           Gate / trigger inputs and CV inputs for each sample that can be assigned independently for each channel to virtually any sample parameter. Examples include:
