HOW DOES THE SAMPLESLICER WORK?
What does the Sampleslicer do?
The Sampleslicer is a real-time monophonic sampler, including a 16 step voltage-controlled sequencer.The incoming sound is chopped up automatically into 16 parts by the incoming clock signal and spread out over the16 steps in the internal sequencer.
How long can it sample?
The length of the recorded sample is set by a clock-divider, so
the recording time is always linked to the incoming clock signal.
You can choose between time divisions of 1, ½, ⅓, ¼ and ⅛.
If the divider is set to 1 the total sample time is equal to 16 incoming clock-pulses.
If set to ½ the sample length is equal to 8 incoming clock-pulses, spread over 16 slices (so half the time). It will produce even more glitchy fun when set to ⅓, as it will spread 6 steps over 16 slices. The maximum sample time is about 15 seconds and the minimum sample time is a fraction of a second for granular noises.
How does the sequencer work?
Inside the Sampleslicer there is a 16-step voltage controlled
sequencer to play back the sound. Every step is dedicated to a 16th
part of the recorded sound inside memory. When the 16 steps are
full the sequencer starts playing from the chosen start point till
the chosen amount of steps are played. This can be in one-shot mode
or in loop mode for infinite looping.
The start point and play length is determined by potentiometers or CV input.
Last but not least the individual slices can be played back as notes via CV from a sequencer or keyboard, by setting the start point in V/oct mode and play length to 1.
How does the pitch work?
There is a control to pitch the slices up or down. The pitch control affects the overall pitch of the recorded material. It can be controlled via CV.
Why only realtime sampling?
Our vision on the modular world is that you get most fun out of realtime created sounds. Out of principle we chose to make this module without a memory card reader.
What about the soundquality?
The sample rate is 12bit, just like the good old sampling madness days. A lovely sound with a slightly raw character without being gritty. For comparison: CD digital sound quality is 16bit, gameboys are 8bit, the E-mu Emulator is 8bit, E-mu Emax is 12bit, the MPC60 is 12bit, the AKAI S612 is 12bit, the AKAI S900 is 12bit, Oberheim DPX1 is 12bit and the EMU sp-1200 is 12bit too…
In order to maximize sound quality and creative usage
possibilities, we choose not to place an anti-aliasing filter in
the audio output path. The digital-to-analog conversion process
already gives a clean and rounded sound, and filtering would tend
to take away some brightness and aliasing can give some extra to
It is designed to be part of a modular system so we leave it to you whether you like to patch the input/output through a filter or not.
