WMD Chimera

Chimera, from WMD, is a metallic percussion synthesizer based around sampling and granular processing. It is based on sampling sounds such as sleigh bells, tambourines, drill bits, shell casing, chains, coins, and damaged eurorack panels. 

From there, the sounds are then processed by a complex but intuitive granular processor for widening the timbral palette. There are CV inputs for every control, as well as a built in VCA.

Elektron Analog Four MKII With A Tiny Modular Synth
This video shows how an Elektron Analog Four MKII can be used with a eurorack modular synthesizer. The Analog Four can output 4 CV signals for triggering and controlling sounds from the modular and the modular can be plugged into the Analog Four to be mixed with the other voices and be run through the effects. The Analog Four is triggering a Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas Alter, WMD Chimera and Make Noise synth made with STO, Function and LxD.

WMD Eurorack Drum Machine With The New Crater Kick Drum + Tiptop Audio Effects Modules
This jam pairs WMD's Metron, their full arsenal of drum modules, Mutable's Plaits, and Tiptop's new ZVERB and ECHOZ effect modules to create a heavy-hitting drum machine in just 104hp of space. With the recent introduction of WMD's Crater, we needed to see just how huge a WMD drum machine could sound.

WMD's four drum modules work in tandem to produce an entire kit's worth of unique, articulate, and highly detailed percussion sounds. Chimera produces metallic sounds using a purpose-built granular engine pre-loaded with samples of everyday objects; Fracture uses a similar engine for scattered, particulate tones. Crucible is a physically-modeled cymbal module, capable of producing sound ranging from realistic ride cymbals to impossibly large metal sheets. Crater, the newest member of the WMD drum family, utilizes a combination of analog and digital components to produce huge, powerful kicks with the impact of a 909 but the body of an 808.

Tiptop's ZVERB and ECHOZ provide tailored versions of effects from their years of development on the Z-DSP multi effect module, while the Metron keeps everything moving while the MSCL glues the mix together.
