Rossum Panharmonium Explained by Learning Modular


Rossum Panharmonium 1/2: explained Published on Oct 26, 2019 Learning Modular

Don't miss Part 2 below.

"The Rossum Electro-Music Panharmonium Mutating Spectral Resynthesizer is a very unusual signal processing module: It studies the incoming signal, breaks it down into its most dominate frequency components, and assigns those to a bank of up to 33 oscillators to re-create (re-synthesize). You can choose which band(s) of frequencies to analyze and how often that analysis happens, and on the output side transpose it, blur it, decide what core waveform us used for the resynthesis, and perform other “mutating” functions including feedback looping.

This first movie gives an overview of how Panharmonium works. It does not dive into every individual feature (there’s a great manual that already does that); this is intended to give you an understanding of how it works, and to quickly get you up to speed using it:

Rossum Panharmonium 2/2: rhythmic uses

"The Rossum Electro-Music Panharmonium Mutating Spectral Resynthesizer studies an incoming signal, breaks it down into its most dominate frequency components, and assigns those to a bank of up to 33 oscillators to re-create (re-synthesize).

The first movie of this set (https://youtu.be/i_GWFs7xgoY) is a “quick start” on Panharmonium where I give an overview of how it works and how the sections interact. In this movie, I focus on my personal specialty: rhythmic applications of Panharmonium. Here is the index:

00:00 examples
01:08 overview & sound sources
01:26 slowing down the analysis
02:04 Slice Clock Output (triggering envelopes)
02:20 enveloping the output
03:31 mutating the sound
05:03 tap tempo
06:10 external clock
07:23 timing issues
08:38 “Freeze Tap”
10:33 more mutation
11:49 conclusion
