The ALM Busy Circuits Pamela’s NEW Workout is an update of a classic Eurorack module. Like its predecessor, the NEW workout is a programmable clock source with eight separate outputs. The new module featured an updated OLED display, hardware additions, and completely new internal software. Unlike its predecessor, which is only capable of emitting clock and trigger signals, Pamela’s NEW Workout. can also output rhythmic waveforms.
Additionally, the unit is expandable by the PEXP-1 and PEXP-2 modules (sold separately), which add MIDI and DIN Sync outputs.
Pamela's NEW Workout Features
BPM based clock with tempo rates 10-300BPM.
8 Clocked voltage outputs each with independent adjustable;
Clock divisors and multipliers from /512 to x48 including various non integer factors.
Gated, Triangle, Sine, Envelope & random base waveforms.
Waveform level and pulse width / skewing.
Phase, Delay and delay division (for complex swing)
Euclidean and random step skipping with beat based looping for rhythm creation
All output parameters assignable to x2 CV inputs with individual software offset, attenuation and monitoring.
Per output and group saving and loading to 200 banks.Voltage and direct control of clock stop/start, reset and rate. Sync to an external clock input at 48 to 1 PPQN.
Real Time intuitive user interface with high resolution LED display. Provides dedicated DIN Sync and MIDI clock output via optional expander(s).
Current Draw: ~30 - 80ma (all triggers simultaneously open)

Pamela’s New Workout controlling Akemie’s and Dinky’s Taikos
Pamela's New Workout is used to generate triggers, random voltages, and LFOs to create an upbeat rhythmic patch with Akemie's Taiko and Dinky's Taiko. Pitch variation comes from randomly modulating Akemie's ratio, while rhythmic variation is generated by feeding random voltages back to Pam's Workout's inputs and somewhat off-time clocks to Akemie's FM feedback amount.
Pamela's NEW Workout, from ALM Busy Circuits, is an update from their Eurorack classic, Pamela's Workout. It is a compact programmable clock source, with eight individual outputs. Now upgraded in Pamela's NEW Workout is an OLED display for greater clarity and presentation of information, along with some other hardware developments and a completely redesigned software. Each output is now expanded to include rhythmic waveforms instead of just clocks and triggers. Its ability to interface with other gate signals has also been improved, with dedicated MIDI and Din Sync outputs available with the expansion modules, as well as rock solid clock stability.
54HP Episode 4: Lo-Fi Groovebox
On this episode of 54HP we built a lo-fi sample based groovebox case with the new Assimil8or as the sound generating core. This 8 track sampler and sample player can play back sounds as well as DC coupled CV sequences and modulation. The Assimil8or is capable of high quality sample playback as well, but features bit reduction and lo-fi aliasing options. Clock dividers and mathematical sequencers were used to trigger the samples and the Mum M8 filter adds some more lo-fi sampler character at the end of the chain.
