Chimera is a granular synthesis module that specializes in drum sounds. It offers a wide range of detailed sample sources as well as its own synthesis engine. Firmware updates can be performed via USB.
The module features various samples called Surfaces. The samples are mainly metallic sounds:
- cartridge cases
- metal housings
- broken modular front panels
Chimera uses impulsive sounds with lots of detail and long decay times to create detailed shaker-like sounds. The granular synthesizer was developed around the samples here, this has the advantage that the percussion sounds sound so more natural.
Power consumption: 63mA at +12V and 17mA at -12V
