PLANET PHATT - The Swing System

Planet Phatt is a professional tone module created specifically for HipHop, Rap, Acid Jazz and Trip-Hop musicians. Planet Phatt is 16 part multi-timbral, featuring 32 voices of polyphony and 640 presets (384 ROM, 256 RAM). It is a superb song writing tool and a perfect addition to the modern keyboard player's studio or live setup. Planet Phatt is also equipped with our exclusive “BEATS” mode. 100 user-editable drum loops are stored in memory and can be synchronized to internal or external MIDI clock. The combination of beats, tempo, any preset and the powerful “X-Factor” control allow you to create literally millions of new groove ideas. Your custom Beats can also be linked into 28 user-programmable Songs with looping and programmable jumps. Beats and Songs can be easily modified to fit your style.

There are 640 presets on Planet Phatt, created by talented E-mu programmers and other industry experts. Of course you can edit or modify any and all parameters to create a limitless number of entirely new sounds. Edit and tweak Planet Phatt’s sounds the way you like them by using its powerful filters, MIDI synced LFO’s, and MIDIpatch modulation system. Planet Phatt has plenty of real-time controls and destinations that allow users to create floor-slamming, heart-pounding masterpieces. Creating your own original sounds is easy, thanks to Planet Phatt's logical user interface.

Other features include 3 stereo outputs for externally processing sounds (also configurable as 6 polyphonic submixes with fully programmable dynamic panning), integral sends and returns to allow the addition of external effects units without the need for a separate mixer, user-definable alternate tuning, and of course, an extensive MIDI implementation.

In addition, when coupled with E-mu's Launchpad Performance Controller, Planet Phatt becomes a self-contained interactive groove machine for the stage or studio. Check it out…
