Psychic Modulation releases Cerebrum v3.0
19th December 2006
Cerebrum 3 is a groovebox-style synth/sampler hybrid drum machine featuring seven drumsynth modules as well as a bass synth module, each with its own wavlayer for layering with user samples. Three of the seven drum synth modules are sample based, hosting several built-in kick, snare and percussion samples from Les Productions Zvon and Manytone Music.
Each of the synth modules has its own dual 16-step A/B sequencers which allow switching between two different beats, manually or automatic. The sequencers are flexible, and can be played in a variety of ways including looped or ping-pong, each hosting two sets of assignable accent underscores and velocity grids with four types of sequence randomization for further beat manipulation.
Cerebrum can be played in a number of ways such as host-sync, normal play or MIDI trigger. While triggering with a MIDI keyboard, you can choose to trigger the drumline with the upper keys while the bassline is triggered by the lower, or vice versa. At the same time, the middle keys will trigger one-shot (non-sequenced) drums.
Designed with live operation in mind, Cerebrum can be used for making complex beats on the fly that can be randomized, mixed, matched and manipulated in a number of ways.
