The Percussa micro Super Signal Processor (mSSP) Eurorack Module is a powerful Eurorack DSP module based on one of the fastest ARM processors available, the quad core Cortex A17 at 1.8GHz, and high end AKM audio converters offering 8 in / 4 out with up to 192kHz sample rate and 32-bit resolution.

It comes with 50 modular synthesis patches offering polyphonic wavetable, granular, sampling and traditional synthesis techniques, multi-channel audio processing and much more, all in only 26HP of rack space and for only $549.

Kickstarter to Help Support Art + Music + Technology Podcast Electronic Music Oral History Archive

Darwin Grosse has a Kickstarter for a Mic/Pre for his most excellent Art + Music + Technology Podcast. Kickstarter links is

What started out as a funny idea (“Maybe we should do a podcast about Max, a visual programming tool. Bwa-ha-ha!!!”) turned into something much different – an oral history of the way we make our music and our art. Featuring interviews with amazing people like Morton Subotnick, Pauline Oliveros, Richard Devine and Tom Oberheim, the Art + Music + Technology podcast has become the gold standard for hearing the stories of the people that create and extend the world of electronic media.

In our desire to constantly improve the podcast, it’s time for us to update some of our equipment. In an earlier Kickstarter, the listeners helped us get a portable (and backup-capable) recorder; a Zoom H2n and accessories now graces the podcast’s gear locker. But we need more! We want to get a good mic (Shure SM-7b), a nice preamp/compressor (choice depends on support level we reach…), better cabling and a boom stand.

Spreading the Word – Percussa Super Signal Processor Eurorack Module Kickstarter

My good friends Bert and Celine from Percussa have launched a Kickstarter campaign for their new Super Signal Processor (SSP) Eurorack Module. Congrats to being funded in less than 12 hours!  They also received a “project we love” badge from Kickstarter!!!

The Percussa Super Signal Processor (SSP) Eurorack Module is a powerful Eurorack module by Percussa, a brand of Noisetron LLC. It is based on one of the most powerful quad-core ARM Cortex A17 processors currently available, running an optimized linux mainline (v4) kernel, custom DSP software and professional audio I/O drivers.

Now they are reaching for a stretch goal to add MIDI Multidimensional Polyphonic Expression (MPE) support.  They also have stickers, posters, and t-shirt awards for non-Eurorack folks who still want to support the campaign – or consider spreading the word.

As you can see from the photo below, they already have a functional prototype.
