WMD has announced availability of a new multi-particle percussion synthesizer module for small-format Eurorack modular systems.
Fracture applies concepts from classic analogue clap circuits to granular synthesis techniques to generate a wide palette of sounds while maintaining a simple, intuitive interface.
Originally inspired by audience applause, hip-hop samples, and classic drum machines, Fracture is a multi-particle percussion synthesizer that applies concepts from classic analogue clap circuits to granular synthesis methods.
It all starts from proprietary micro-samples we recorded specifically for this purpose and ends with an engine built to suit these samples.
Unlike our other percussion module, the Chimera which uses impulse rich samples as it’s tonal center, Fracture uses single impulse samples like Claps, Snaps, Ping Pong Balls, Opening a beer can, and many more. It then plays a group of similar samples back in a psuedo random order for unique hits. Density, Decay, and Tail affect tone and how “tight” your virtual clappers are to playing together.
- Stereo output.
- Control over “how many people” and ” how tight” they sound together.
- Built in Hall and Room reverb.
- Two Trigger inputs for different types of sounds.
- 3 Filter types, 3 Envelope types.
- Free running, Voltage Controlled “applause” capability.
- CV over all parameters.
Fracture is available to purchase for an MSRP of $269 USD.
