E-Mu Planet Phatt
Planet Phatt is a highly focused, professional tone model created specifically
for hip-hop, rap, acid jazz, and trip hop musicians. Planet Phatt is 16-part multi-timbral,
featuring thirty-two notes of polyphony and 640 presets. It is a superb song writing tool
and a perfect addition to the modern keyboard player's studio or live setup. With its
combination of filter types, MIDI synchronization LFOs, and BEATS Mode, Planet Phatt limits
sound synthesis only to one's imagination.
BEATS Mode - the heart of Planet Phatt
First introduced in Orbit the Dance Planet, BEATS Mode has since been highly enhanced.
It now features100 drum loops that can be synchronized to their own internal clock or
an external MIDI clock. There are twenty-eight user songs and twenty-eight factory songs
available. Each user song can have ten events linking beats together. Both songs and beats
can be accessed from the front panel or remotely by using MIDI Song Start/Stop and Song
Select commands. Another innovative function of BEATS Mode is the ability to transpose
(X-Factor) the entire beat, creating completely new grooves based around a single drum loop.
This functionality along with the ability to change each BEATS drum kit to an entirely new one
gives Planet Phatt over ten thousand groove ideas. These drum loops will definitely not
sound like anyone else's.
Spectacular presets, and lots of them
There are 640 presets found on Planet Phatt, created by talented E-mu programmers
and industry experts. These presets merely scratch the surface of the types of unique and
powerful sounds that can be designed using Planet Phatt's synthesizer architecture.
Planet Phatt has plenty of real-time controls and destinations that allow users to create
floor-slamming, heart-pounding masterpieces.
