The English company has also shared details of its new eight-track sampler module, Squid Sampler.
In a nod to DJs and producers looking to combine DJing with live modular performance, Pamela's Discotheque provides an easy way to sync media players to a Eurorack system. The USB-powered standalone box takes an ethernet cable—typically used to link CDJs—and turns the decks' BPM into DIN sync analogue clocks, which can then be used to control the tempo of your modular. There's also a MIDI output for syncing other drum machines or synthesisers and extra outputs providing different clock speeds.
Initially displayed at last year's Superbooth, the Squid Sampler is an eight-channel design offering 11 seconds of sampling time per channel. Geared primarily towards drums and one-shots, the channels each have a trigger input and are then summed in pairs to four outputs. In addition to sampling audio at 44.1kHz and 16 bit, it can also record and play CV signals and save banks of samples to USB. You can control the pitch of three channels, meaning you can create basslines, melodies and other harmonic parts, as well as loop samples, change playback direction and reduce bit depth. It's set to ship next month for £399.
The final module on display was an expanded, Buchla-compatible version of Pamela's New Workout, ALM's popular clocking module.
There's currently no word on the price or release date of Pamela's Discotheque.
