Anyone familiar with Bert Schiettecatte will know that he is the driving force behind the music technology company, Percussa. With the invention of the AudioCubes behind his name as well as the Synthor System 8, there can be no doubt about his credentials. This is why there was quite a buzz when Bert, along with Celine Van Damme, who works at Percussa on the Percussa Engine Sound Synthesis Software, announced their plans for the Percussa Super Signal Processor (SSP) Eurorack module.
In this day and age when many people rush out to the store the second a new version of their phone or gadget is announced, it’s hard to imagine holding on to hardware that is decades old or even paying a fortune for the privilege of owning them. However, this is exactly what many fans of vintage synthesizers do and it’s not just collectors either, but people who actually still use the equipment because they love the sounds they produce.
