Rossum Electro-Music Mob of Emus

Mob of Emus is a powerful music and sound design tool that packs an enormous amount of creative power into an amazingly compact 16HP module.

Mob of Emu
s gives you six channels of oscillators, noise sources, cyclical and 1-shot modulators (including LFOs, envelopes, and various other shapes), sample and hold waveshapes, slow random modulators, triggers, rhythm patterns, and quantization (of both internal and external signals) in pretty much any combination (well, any combination of six channels, anyway).

In addition to being able to independently program the function of each individual channel, Mob of Emus’ Hex Mode provides a macro control layer that allows you to control all of its channels simultaneously (while maintaining the relationships of each channel’s independent programming).

What’s more, Mob of Emus’ “harmonic” control structure makes it extremely easy to combine its oscillators into rich additive timbres, to combine its LFOs into stacked harmonic low frequency modulation waves, and to create modulation sources and triggers with intricate polyrhythmic patterns.

With an external trigger input, six CV inputs that can operate in six different control modes, six independent outputs, and an assignable mix output, Mob of Emus can operate as the heart of an almost unlimited variety of patches. And its 8 real-time controls will give you immediate hands-on access to a channel’s (or all six channels’) key parameters, inviting (and rewarding) exploration and improvisation.

Mob of Emus features include:

Six channels that can function independently or can be further controlled by a Hex Mode macro layer that lets you control all six simultaneously. Channels can be:
Wide-range digital oscillators
Noise sources
Cyclical and 1-shot modulators (including LFOs, envelopes, and various other shapes)
Sample and hold waveshapes
Slow random modulators
Triggers
Rhythm patterns
Quantizers (of both internal and external(!) signals)
Six CV inputs that can function in six different control modes
Eight real-time controls for immediate access to key channel parameters
Six individual channel outputs and an assignable mix output
The ability to store and recall 12 user presets
And much more…
Mob of Emus is 16HP wide and 25mm deep.

Power requirements (max): 130mA +12V, 25mA -12V. Reverse polarity protected.

Mob of Emus will be available late November from Rossum Electro-Music dealers worldwide.

I'm intrigued! Looks like a nice companion for the 4ms Spectral multiband resonator, too.

Seems like 75% of an Octocontroller on steroids with attenuverters and audio rate outputs

SO, it's a multi oscillator, batumi, grids, and octocontroller rolled into one? Sounds powerful, but perhaps a little overwhelming?

Yeah, I think I'm going to have to see DivKid-style videos of it in use, otherwise I'm going to have to assume it's not a lot of fun to work with.

The full manual is up, in case anyone interested parties didn’t know. When I first saw this, I thought it seemed great but didn’t feel like I needed it. Now I’m probably 50:50.

If they’d put a display on it, you’d get people complaining about menu diving, and without it, people may think it’s obtuse. My take for things like this is that having presets goes a long way- some set-up time up front, but then it’s easier when you’re actually using it.

Either way, just a ton of great functionality in a small space for a reasonable price, even if it’s not for everyone.

PS- I know they’ve used some cute names for modules under development and then changed them for release. Maybe this time they just decided to leave it on the panel for the production version.
