Eurorack Module Unleashes the Full Power of the Legendary 14-pole Z­-Plane Filter with Real-Time Morphing in Three Dimensions.

Rossum Electro-Music today announced they will be previewing their Morpheus Stereo Morphing Z-Plane Filter at the 2016 NAMM show in Anaheim from January 21 through January 24.

Based on the groundbreaking 14-pole Z­-Plane Filters that Dave Rossum invented for the E-mu System's Morpheus synthesizer, Rossum Electro-Music's Morpheus Eurorack module includes over 190 filter configurations. Each configuration is composed of up to 8 complex filters that one can picture as being at the corners of a three dimensional cube. Morpheus then gives users the ability to smoothly interpolate between those 8 filters within the cube's three dimensional space.

Due to processor limitations back in the day, the original Morpheus was capable of real-time morphing between filter configurations in only one dimension. Interpolation in the frequency and transform dimensions were set at note-on and remained static for the remainder of the note. But even with that limitation, Morpheus offered sonic capabilities that are unmatched to this day.

With Rossum Electro-Music's new Morpheus module, musicians and sound designers now get simultaneous real-time manual and CV control of all three dimensions, for dynamic timbral effects unlike anything ever heard before.

Morpheus features include:

– Over 190 14-pole filter configurations

– Real-time manual and CV control of Frequency, Morphing and Transformation

– The ability to save hundreds of customized filter configurations

– A sequencer for stepping through filter configurations under trigger or clock control

– A large OLED display for programming and realtime display of morphing

Like all Rossum Electro-Music digital modules, all parameters are available for adjustment with a single button press. No menu diving.

Morpheus will be available this spring from Rossum Electro-Music dealers worldwide.
