Audio Damage - ADM12 Neuron
The Audio Damage - ADM12 Neuron is a deep and crazy drum voice. Not just because of the FM inputs. Not just the fat kick drum sound and sharp noise or the built-in envelopes. It is a complete percussive solution that fills a lot of different duties in the world of percussive generators.
The Audio Damage ADM12 is a dedicated drum voice indeed. Having every parameter under voltage control and thanks to the pingable envelope envelope and VCA – plus the lovely manual trigger button with LED installed onto this space saving panel width is most ergonomic. The trigger button grants you immediate access to the sound, so there is no need for an external input to hear your FM percussion sorcery. The durable knobs are really massive and since they are center-deterred, you can just dial in a lot of percussion sounds. You are able to go beyond the tonal concepts of a “tom” or a “hihat” with ease to the (yet) unexplored terrirtory. Come and check it out in our showroom!
Audio Damage - ADM12 Neuron is an FM-based all-in-one drum voice module suitable for all types of electronic music. From big Autechre-style FM hits to huge digital hardcore kicks to tight x0x snare drums, Neuron can make a broad range of percussion sounds with ease.
Starting with super fast envelopes internally curved for percussion sounds, we add a carrier wave that is a single-cycle sample straight from the PCB of a 909's kick oscillator. We then add pure sine modulation, analog-modelled soft saturation, digital distortion, and a true random-number-generator for white noise.
The result is a drum module that is both easy to use and incredibly versatile.
» Neuron is a DSP-based module that runs at 48kHz sample rate and 24 bit depth, via a high quality Cirrus-Logic codec.
» Two-operator FM synth voice tuned for percussion use.
» Carrier waveform is a single-cycle sample of a 909 kick's main oscillator, taken from the board of a real 909 via a studio-grade Mytek A/D convertor. Tunable from 20Hz to 1kHz.
» Modulator waveform is a pure sine wave, tunable from 5Hz to 1kHz.
» Two ultra-fast percussion-curved internal envelopes for pitch mod and VCA.
» Soft saturation/overdrive and distortion control for hardcore sounds.
» Internal noise generator for snare and cymbal sounds.
» Trigger input that fires the internal envelopes on a 1V edge detection. Can be triggered up to low audio rates. (Approx. 60Hz.)
» Accent and Choke inputs allow further time-based control over the output.
» Every control has a CV input that accepts +/-5V. Panel controls are sampled at low audio rates (approximately 35Hz), and have further internal lag processing for smooth parameter changes.
» USB port (on the backplane) for easy firmware updates.
» High-quality 100% Made In The USA construction, including panel-bolted 100,000-cycle BI potentiometers and custom stamped Rogan knobs.
» Power draw is 50ma from the +12V rail and 9ma from the -12V rail. This module has an on-board regulator and does not require +5V. Module width is 12HP. Module depth is 25mm.
» Neuron, like all Audio Damage hardware products, includes our lifetime unconditional warranty.
