Ginko Synthese SampleSlicer 12-Bit Eurorack Sampler Demo
Demonstrating the Ginko Synthese SampleSlicer 12-Bit Eurorack Sampler. Yes 12-bit sampling, just like those old Akai S-900, S612 and MPC-60 samplers. I ordered it from Modular Addict and they shipped very quickly. This module required assembly and good soldering skills, and took me a couple of hours to build.
It uses an incoming clock to control sample recording and playback.
Recording: Control of sample length which controls how big or small the slices are. Input can be switched to audio or to record Control Voltages.
Playback: Realtime control of changes in sample length. Increasing length causes repeats, decreasing length chopped-off segments that run faster and can result in semi-granular type sounds. Also has realtime controls for pitch, start time, and length of the entire sample.
0:00 AUDIO sample of the DNA Symbiotic Waves Sequence. 1:00 CV sample of the DNA Symbiotic Waves Sequence. 1:34 AUDIO sample of DNA doing weird things 2:45 MIXING together the sample and modulating the original audio 3:57 AUDIO sample of acoustic guitar from iPod (signal boosted by mixer).
Great module for glitch. My iPod signal was pretty weak so it needed to be boosted by a mixer, it handled my other module signals like a champ. Also, maybe in future versions it could include reverse sampling.
