SCOOPER

Modular Scatter

SCOOPER

Programmable Scatter Effect with CV/Gate and Eurorack Compatibility

SCOOPER is a unique modular effect combining a single-pass loop recorder and Scatter effect with unprecedented control and flexibility. Able to be used as a tabletop unit or as a Eurorack module, and with an array of CV/Gate inputs, this compact 21 HP unit has a wide range of uses from studio production to live performance. Not only for modular synth users, SCOOPER is perfect for keyboard players, guitarists, DJs or any adventurous musician looking to expand their sound. Carefully crafted in Japan, SCOOPER has large, ultra-smooth controls with over 16 million steps of resolution and is fully re-programmable via computer or tablet.

Single-pass looper with dramatic Scatter effects

SCOOPER is an ultra-modern effect that can sample, mangle, degrade and glitch captured loops of incoming audio. After capturing an audio loop, you can use SCOOPER to djust the loop’s pitch as well as process it through a filter section and various Scatter types that slice and warp individual steps. Using the large comfortable controls or standard 1/8" patch cables, you can independently control the Scatter type and depth, pitch, filter, sync trigger and Scatter on/off toggle. Both the Scatter Depth and Scatter Type parameters have input level controls for adjusting the modulation range when controlled from an external source. Two inputs and two outputs make SCOOPER a stereo-capable, 24bit/96kHz audio interface for Eurorack systems, and AIRA Link USB compatibility gives it single-cable, plug and play connectivity with the MX-1 Mix Performer.

Re-programmable via Mac, PC, iOS, Android application

While it sounds great out of the box, you can fully customize SCOOPER’s internal signal path by re-patching its array of virtual sub-modules via a custom application that works on Mac and PC as well as iOS and Android devices. Submodules are re-patched through a simple and intuitive drag and drop interface that even lets you choose which parameters are assigned to the high-resolution “GRF” knobs. You can reprogram SCOOPER in realtime via USB connection or save and recall patches with a simple audio signal. You can even share patches with other SCOOPER users.
