Description

The WMD Chimera, pronounced "kai-meer-ah", is WMD's first percussion synthesizer module for Eurorack.

First, WMD recorded samples of different metallic hits to create the sonic signatures that are called Surfaces. The sources include tambourines, sleigh bells, drill bits, wrenches, shell casings, coins, chains, stompbox enclosures and about 50 Eurorack panels from an order that came damaged from our supplier.

Second, WMD built a proprietary granular synthesis engine around the sonic signatures with the goal of making a module that could sound like a human hitting and shaking a tambourine. With the fundamentals finished, WMD tweaked the control ranges, built the post-engine effects, and bomb-proofed the hardware.

From there WMD pushed and polished the engine and user experience, squeezing every juicy drop out of 8HP.

Humanistic shakers, drum machine tambourines, laser guns, minimal techno offbeats, giant-robot movie sound design, etc. It's all yours with the Chimera.
