Pamela’s New Workout

ALM Busy Circuits introduces the much-anticipated successor to Pamela’s Workout – but will it be showing off all-new moves, or rehashing the same old routine? Dave Gale limbers up to find out…
Start, stop, assign… ALM’s Pam has a brand-new workout

Clocks are one of the absolute foundations of modular, and for many, form the starting point of the music they make. Anything with something approaching a groove in a modular is likely to have a module in the system that’s generating ‘that’ starting pulse, to which everything else slaves. And therein lies the beating heart of Pamela’s New Workout.

Improving Pam

As with all ALM modules, Matthew Allum (the creative guru behind the company) closely guards the module names, but in the illustrations to be found in some of the documentation, Pamela can only be described as a cross between a Baywatch superstar and a mermaid! Pure conjecture on my part, but regardless, this new clock-based treat is incredibly flexible in its purpose and design.

This is a major upgrade to the older Pamela’s Workout, and this can be seen from the outset with the addition of a new OLED display in place of the previous, more basic, offering. It’s now possible to see exactly what you’re doing, with very clear and legible writing on screen.
