Thomas Henry Mega Percussive Synthesizer Analog Drum Module
The MPS is truly an inspired design. One very important element of the MPS, the impact generator, was derived directly from a modular percussion patch by one of the great synthesizer masters. In fact, the MPS contains three seperate tunable oscillators. In addition to the oscillators, the MPS utilizes a ring modulator, it has a noise generator, a voltage controlled resonant filter with two selectable responses (low pass or band pass), three VCAs, and a mixer section for mixing all of the elements together to fine tune a very realistic percussive sound.
The MPS will deliver anything from a convincing snare to toms, to bass, to a sizzling high hat, to a glorious cowbell. When Christopher Walken demands "more cowbell", the MPS can deliver. Not only can the MPS deliver standard percussive sounds, it can easily be tuned to the "out of this world" percussive sounds. It can easily supply voices ranging from the electronic disco drums used in modern day hospitals to empty stomachs of their contents to the sound of an alien craft taking off with each drum beat. In fact, at the flick of a switch, the MPS will transform from a percussive synthesizer to a full-on sustained..sound..generator capable of fully rendering the Neptunian Planetary Anthem in full four part Neptunian harmony.
