E-MU PRO/CUSSION .mp3 page

Post by Sealed » Mon Aug 20, 2007 10:28 am

I added a page for E-MU PRO/CUSSION drum synthesizer.
It's a 4-OSC PCM synth with a soft filter.

I especially like the random modulation. When used for layer crossfading, a simple sequence can be more expressive.

I wish today's PCM synths had drum-synth function as flexible as PRO/CUSSION. The only one I know is Roland D-110 - it can assign any normal synth patch to any key in the drum kit.

the Pro/cussion is pretty cool- the little blurb should mention it's 16-part multimbral and it really, really doesn't have a LPF, the transposing/tuning is just that.

oh, and there were two versions, one has more samples than the other if i remember and they have totally different-looking faceplates.

PRO/CUSSION has the TONE parameter that works like a EQ. I'll add a sample....
And yes, there are two versions of its face - the "PRO/CUSSION" logo is different. I don't know if they are sonically different.

To access the Tone parameter, take a look at the modulation matrix. You can select some modulation source like velocity and route it to modulate Tone.

I have the version with larger logo like "P R O / C U S S I O N". It may be the later model.
