4ms - Sampler

Product information "4ms - Sampler"
The Sampler plays stereo or mono .wav files from an SD Card. Samples are arranged into banks by placing .wav files into folders (each folder is a bank). A maximum of 10 samplers can be loaded in a bank, and there is a maximum of 60 bank (600 samples maximum total). Sample files are limited to 4GB each, which is over 6 hours at 44k/16b/stereo. • Hundreds of samples included on microSD card • Extremely quiet, low noise and low jitter design • Stereo or Mono output A knob and CV jack selects the Sample to play, and the Start Position knob and CV jack control where in the sample playback will begin. The Length knob and CV jack determine how much of the sample is played back: from tiny grains, to percussive hits, to longer loops... or just the entire file. Pressing Play or firing a trigger into the Play Trig jack will play the sample. Holding the Play button down for a second will toggle looping. There's also a Reverse button and jack for backwards playback, and an End Out jack for synchronizing loops, or cascading sample playback with other events. To record samples, hold Play and Reverse for two seconds. Press Play again or fire a trigger into the Play/Rec Trig jack to start and stop recording. Each recording will create a new stereo 48kHz 24bit .wav file in the current bank's folder. Recordings can be as long as your card has the capacity for: a 256GB card is 18 days of continuous recording (432.9 hours). Audio data is split into maximum 4GB wav files on the microSD card. Included with the DIY Sampler Kit: • Main PCB • Faceplate • All components required for assembly (resistors, capacitors, diodes, ICs, sockets, headers, voltage regulator, jacks, buttons, SD card slot, potentiometers, knobs) • Pre-programmed and pre-soldered "DSP Brain-Board" • 16GB micro SD card (class 10) with 4ms Sample Pack 2022 • SD adaptor • 10-to-16 pin power cable • M3 screws Features: • Play button/trigger jack: Tapping the button or receiving a trigger starts/re-starts the sample • Sample CV/knob: select which sample within the channel's bank • Pitch CV and Pitch knob: playback pitch (-10 to +4 octave range) • Start Pos CV/knob: position in the sample to begin playback (loop start point) • Length CV/knob: playback time (loop end point) • Length knob at max: entire file is played • Length knob 50%-99%: 200ms - 5s of the sample is played (beginning at the Start Position) • Length knob <50%: Percussive decay envelope is applied to the playback (attack-only envelope if playing Reverse) • Length <1%: Tiny grains are played (can be used to sweep through sample file data manually) • Reverse button/jack: toggles forward/backwards • Bank button: selects channel's bank • Reverse+Start Pos button/knob combo allows for setting volume of playback • Audio Inputs: 20Hz to 10kHz (+/-0.1dB); -6dB rolloff @ 20kHz / 21V peak-to-peak maximum before clipping • Audio Outputs: 0Hz (DC) to 22kHz with maximum -1.8dB difference between file data and output / +10.5V to -10.5V maximum output DIY-Kit-Type: THT-Kit-1.

Manufacturer "4ms"
In 1996, Dan Green founded an innovative effect pedal business named 3ms Pedals near Chicago, Illinois, USA. The unique designs features many knobs and the option for custom artwork and modifications. Two years later Dan moved to St. Louis, Missouri, and began producing table-top noise devices as well as effect pedals for experimental musicians. In 2002, the business changed its name to 4ms Company (d/b/a 4ms Pedals) and only a few years later began creating an advanced digital meta-instrument: the Bend Matrix, a 4x8 dynamic routing matrix, automatic circuit-bender, and octophonic mixer. In 2009, the company moved to Austin, Texas, and began designing Eurorack modules. In 2012 we moved to beautiful Portland, Oregon, where we currently have our studio in the west coast nexus of synthesizer makers. In 2016 and again in 2017 we won Electronic Musician's Module of the Year!
