Introducing Motto Akemie - 6 Voice FM Drum Synth Plugin


video upload by ALM TV

"'Motto Akemie' is a 6 Voice FM drum synth and step sequencer for your DAW.

Each voice is based on our renowned ’Akemie’s Taiko’ Eurorack module featuring similar controls and playful FM sounds from pure sinusoidal oscillations to mega clonks to chaotic self-feedbacking enveloped noise. The built in multitrack step sequencer allows for quick polyrhythmic pattern creation with step modulation of all parameters, randomisation and Pam style scaling across storable pattern banks and presets. Voices can also be played and controlled via MIDI with support for MTS-ESP microtuning.

Motto Akemie is available now to download for macOS and Windows for $40 with an optional fully functional 7 day free trial.

Pam PRO Sync Guide


video upload by ALM TV

"Here we take a look at numerous ways to sync Pamela's PRO Workout with other hardware and software including syncing two Pams, external Din Sync, MIDI clock, LFO BPM modulation, the Pam Sync DAW plugin, and finally syncing the virtual Pam PRO in VCV Rack.

In general most forms of sync expect a standard 24PPQN clock and Run 'Din Sync' type signal set for the Clk and Run inputs. These settings can be changed from Pam's BPM menu to accomodate other common clock PPQN speeds and Run or Reset signals to align with the sync signals produced by other hardware devices."

Introducing ALM MEGA MILTON - Compact Utilities


video upload by ALM TV

"The 'MEGA MILTON' is a smorgasbord of handy all analog utilities in just 8HP that will greatly extend the functionality of your Eurorack system.

It includes a stereo line input converter for incorporating line level external sources into a Eurorack system, a fixed 4 input mixer with breakout attenuator for combining signals, a gated slew limiter for adding slides to sequences, a sample and hold with analog white noise with a myriad of uses such as generative melodies or producing percussive textures and finally a buffered mult for droop free signal distribution with handy LEDs to monitor.

All sections are normalised to help with typical use cases such as generating random CV from the sample & hold section, a smooth random source from the slew output and breaking out a standalone attenuator from the fourth mixer input.

The 'MEGA MILTON' provides essential classic synthesizer building blocks for patching in any Eurorack system. In this video we take a look at all of its features."

ALM Introduces MFD - DJ Crossfader & Stereo VCA


video upload by ALM TV

"The MFD is a 2-channel stereo crossfader designed for live DJ-style mixing and jamming in Eurorack. Two mono or stereo inputs are mixed to a single stereo output via direct or voltage control. Additional Cue controls provide preview monitoring of either input pre-mix via dedicated Cue switches and an output.

Voltage control over the crossfade and DC coupling allow for further creative uses such as a high quality stereo VCA or as a mix processor for either stereo audio signals or CV.

The MFD is designed to have very low noise and cross bleed and employs equal power crossfading for smooth constant level blending between signal sources."

VCV Pamela's PRO Workout DAW Sync Setup


video upload by ALM TV

"Here we take a look at the simple setup process for syncing the VCV version of Pamela's PRO Workout to a DAW via our free Pam Sync Plugin or VCV's built in MIDI to CV module.

This process should work with any DAW but requires the pro version of VCV Rack for use as a plugin within your DAW.

*Note the sample rate must match between both VCV and the DAW for sync to work properly.

Pam Sync is a FREE simple ‘just works’ DAW plugin for syncing Pam to your DAWs clock via low latency audio signals. It uses 2 audio (i.e. stereo) channels to provide a ‘DIN sync’ type signal consisting of a clock and a run signal to be patched into the Pam’s ‘Clk’ and ‘Run’ inputs. Once connected Pam will stop and start with your DAW and match the tempo.

The plugin should work with any DAW that supports VST or Audio Units. See the README.txt in the download for more setup documentation.

Pam Sync is available now as a free download for both Windows and Mac. Get it here: busycircuits.com/almpg001"

Pamela's PRO Workout: Generative Sequencing Part 2 - Evolving Patterns


video upload by ALM TV

"Pamela's PRO Workout is a powerful generative source of both random rhythms and modulation. Combined with the loop parameters, pitch quantiser, and more, these sources of randomness can be transformed into repeating rhythmic or note sequences that can be altered and shaped or evolved. In this follow up to part 1 we take a look at how to reset the random seed using Cross Operations, creating a completely new sequence every 4 bars.

Note this can be done using any external CV as well by setting the Cross Source to 'In 1' or 'In 2'.

This is part of our new video series where we take a closer look at the more unique and powerful features of Pamela's PRO Workout."

ALM Introduces BXx2 - ALM043 & STEREO SUM - ALM038


video upload by ALM TV

"The BXx2 is a dual channel preamp, EQ and mixer based on the classic Boss BX series mixers. Well loved for their unique character and musicality, the sound of the BX is found throughout countless techno records from the 80s & 90s.

With the inclusion of both input gain and level controls, each channel can be overdriven, producing the signature saturated and lively sound the BX mixers are known for. The EQ controls provide the channels with simple but great sounding high and low shelf EQs for emphasising and shaping sounds as well as the tonality of the drive. An additional Aux input allows another mixer or extra sound source to be chained in.

The BXx2 is a simple but powerful sound shaping tool, adding colour and warmth to anything patched through it.

It was designed in collaboration with Feedback Modules – based on their single channel PRE BX module and has a limited release of only 300 units. Visit Feedback Modules here: https://feedback-modules.myshopify.com/"

Introducing STEREO SUM - ALM038

video upload by

"The ‘STEREO SUM’ is a unity gain summing mixer that features four stereo input pairs summed as pairs to two independent mix outs or all as a single combined mix. It is a useful utility for efficiently combining outputs of multiple stereo sources, such as the MEGA-TANG and Jumble Henge mixers or multiple MFX returns.

The inputs accept stereo or mono signals (via normalisation) which can be audio or CV (module is DC coupled) and the top mixer’s outputs are normalised to the bottom mixer section meaning if the upper output is left unpatched the two upper inputs will be added to the lower output."
