ALM017 / Pamela's NEW Workout & ALM017-EX Expanders

ALM017 - Pamela's NEW Workout from ALM on Vimeo.

"Simple demo with Pamela's NEW workout driving an Erica synths Pico Drum. Pam's CV modulation of both sample selection and itself."
You'll find the video for the expanders further below.

"‘Pamela’s NEW Workout’ is a compact programmable clocked modulation source for your Eurorack modular synthesiser system. It provides 8 highly editable outputs producing various control voltage signals correlated and synced to a BPM based master clock.

Building on the original ’Pamela’s Workout’, this new evolved model maintains the original’s form factor and intuitive workflow but greatly improves on and adds many new features with upgraded hardware, a new OLED display and rewritten software.

Each output is now able to provide not just clocked triggers but also rhythmic waveforms with many parameters controllable directly and via assigning to external CV control. Pamela has grown beyond a clever clock and now provides almost limitless synced modulation possibilities.

Improvements have been made to overall clock stability and integration with external clocks and devices. Also new are dedicated MIDI and Din Sync clock outputs available via optional expander modules.


BPM based clock with tempo rates 10-300BPM.
8 Clocked voltage outputs each with independent adjustable;
Clock divisors and multipliers from /512 to x48 including various non integer factors.
Gated, Triangle, Sine, Envelope & random base waveforms.
Waveform level and pulse width / skewing.
Phase, Delay and delay division (for complex swing)
Euclidean and random step skipping with beat based looping for rhythm creation
All output parameters assignable to x2 CV inputs with individual software offset, attenuation and monitoring.
Per output and group saving and loading to 200 banks.
Voltage and direct control of clock stop/start, reset and rate..
Sync to an external clock input at 48 to 1 PPQN.
Realtime intuitive user interface with high resolution LED display.
Provides dedicated DIN Sync and MIDI clock output via optional expander(s).
Easy firmware upgrades via USB port.
Unlikely to actually improve aerobic fitness."

Pamela's New Workout PEXP-1 Expander from ALM on Vimeo.

"Quick demo of Pamela's NEW Workout Eurorack module syncing external hardware via the optional 'Pexp-1' expander module. The expander modules clocks;

The TR-909 via the MIDI Clock output.

The TB-303 via the Din Sync Clock output.

The Korg SQ-1 via one of the fixed gate outputs."

via ALM

"Pexp-1 & Pexp-2 are two expander modules for Pamela’s NEW Workout both offering additional dedicated fixed clocked outputs.

Extend Pam as a master to clock external gear with a super solid MIDI & Din Sync dedicated clock outputs.

Use extra fixed jack clocked gate outputs to free up Pamela outputs for more exotic modulation dutys.

Connects too, and Powered by, expander header on rear of Pamela’s NEW Workout.

PEXP-1 Features:

Din socketed Din Sync and MIDI Clock dedicated outputs.
4 extra buffered fixed gate outputs – x1, x2, x4 & /4
PEXP-2 Features:

3.5mm jack socketed MIDI Clock output
MIDI wiring orientation switchable (for differing 3.5mm wiring setups)
Buffered x24 & run jack outputs"
