Erica Synths Techno System is the ultimate tool for rhythm based music production, live performances and sound design. The drum modules are internally patched to the sequencer, so they receive trigger and accent signals even without patching relevant patch cables therefore allowing you to fully focus on the audio signal patching. With a bit of imagination you’ll find that it’s not limited to specific music genres — it just depends on your creativity in patching and settings of modules. The potential is unlimited!
Erica Synths Graphic VCO allows you to draw your own waveforms, arrange them in wavetables and wavetable banks, morph between two selected waves and alter the resulting wave in advanced ways (FXes) – apply FM, phase distortion, ring modulation, wavefold/wavewrap, bitcrush.
Erica Synths Bassline is fully analogue synth voice module for ultimate basslines and leads. It features AS3340 VCO with three waveforms, a filter inspired by Erica Synths Acidbox and unique features - transistor based suboscillator and two BBD lines that emulate VCO detune creating a sound of massive polysynth from one oscillator. Accent provides more expression to the bassline, by adding volume and opening the VCF slightly.
Erica Synths Cymbals is a distinct topology digital/analogue module, where cymbal samples are passed thru AS3330 based VCA and controlled via envelope generators of unique design. The module features 10 sets of custom Crash and Ride cymbal samples with Tune control and individual Decay control. Accent and CV control over Tone and Decay allow you to create lot of variations in the Cymbals track. An extra feature is sample looping – when it’s on, a certain part of the sample is looped while the envelope decay is on, thus creating a distinct, delay-like effect. Cymbal samples are developed by producer and musician Nero Bellum.
Hi-Hats D is Erica Synths take on classical digital hi-hats. Instead of using an integrated circuit DAC chip Hi-Hats D are using 6-bit discrete DAC for that unmistakable crunchy sound. For amplitude shaping samples are passed trough AS3330 based VCA and are controlled with an analog envelope generator for versatile and snappy sound. Extra feature is Open Hi-Hat looping – when it’s on, a certain part of the sample is looped while the envelope decay is on, thus creating distinct, delay-like effect.
Erica Synths Modulator is an advanced modulation and pitched noise source with focus on rhythmic (but not limited to) compositions in mind. It features two identical syncable to the BPM LFOs/noise sources with selectable morphing waveshapes. LFO frequency can be manually adjustable, as well as they provide frequency divisions and multiplication in Sync mode. Each LFO has two outputs- main one and secondary one with adjustable phase, so you can create evolving modulations. Furthermore, LFOs can be linked to work at the same frequency and the first LFO has built in VCA to control output signal amplitude.
LINK is the module that bridges eurorack to destop mixers — it has 5 sections that attenuate eurorack signals to line level signals and send them to 6,3mm jacks for quality connection to the mixer.
To add some space to your compositions and nuances in sound design Erica Synths Dual FX module brings you two identical sections of 8 custom effects with two adjustable and CV controllable parameters.
The Drum Sequencer is easy to use, classical X0X style live performance oriented sequencer module that provides the ultimate control over your system. Erica Synths Drum Sequencer might be the last modular sequencer for drums and basslines you will ever have to buy!
DIY BBD Delay/Flanger
Erica Synths DIY BBD Delay/Flanger is one of the few BBD (bucket brigade delay) chip based DIY modules. The module is designed to provide variety of effects from flanger to delays with adjustable flavours and plenty of modulation possibilities.
Black Hole DSP 2
Erica Synths Black Hole DSP 2, an updated version of Black Hole DSP features 24 custom effects, designed in close co-operation of Erica Synths team rider KODEK and creator of SpinCAD software Gary Worsham. Each effect has 3 manually and CV controllable parameters, manual and CV control over sampling frequency for spanning from 48kHz to really Lo-Fi crunchy sound and full analogue dry/wet control. All effect parameter settings can be saved to the memory and instantly recalled with the effect, which makes Black Hole DSP II ideal for live performances.
