Synthplex 2019: Rossum Electro-Music lets all hell break loose with new Panharmonium Mutating Spectral Resynthesizer Eurorack module

Synthplex 2019: Rossum Electro-Music has released the Mutating Spectral Resynthesizer Eurorack module at the inaugural Synthplex event in Burbank CA.

The module is the brainchild Bob Bliss, designer of E-MU’s Emulator OS, and promises a veritable shed-ton of sound designing tools.

The MSR's main purpose is to analyse the spectral content of any audio signal, which is then used to drive a bank of 1-33 oscillators. Just in case you didn't think that was enough, it can also modify the input, in realtime, in myriad ways.

The module’s input can take on anything that's thrown at it, from the simplest of waveforms to full-on mixes with vocals.

In addition to this, Panharmonium is able to take a snapshot of the incoming signal spectrum and use it as its own oscillator, which can then be fed through the modifier controls.

All of this is crammed inside a 26HP, 25mm deep Eurorack module, that will no doubt become a firm favourite among sound designers.

The module will be available in the summer for $499. For more information, check out the Rossum Electro-Music website.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
