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.
Erica Synths Pico VCO2 – powerful, full analogue VCO with great tracking over 8 octaves just in 3HP! Combine two of those, add some PWM and have a sound of real analogue beast!
Pico VC EG
Erica Pico VC EG is versatile looping AD/ASR envelope generator with voltage control over attack and decay times. It has automatic Trigger/Gate detection, as well as “drone mode” – at full CW setting of the Decay knob, the envelope is full open. In the LOOP mode you can re-trigger envelopes for even more interesting modulations.
Pico NOISE is a versatile noise and percussion sounds source. It consists of white a noise generator, a resonant VCF to generate various colours of the noise – from extremely dark ones to high pitched resonant sweeps and a VCA/decay envelope generator combination to create range of percussion sounds to emulate hi-hats, cymbals and even sine tone-based percussions, when the resonance is full up.
Erica Pico Ring is a balanced modulator (quadrant multiplier) circuit to create bell-like, metallic or robotic sounds. It has built-in sinewave modulation oscillator for more versatility.
Pico BBD is great sounding, full analogue 4092 stage bucket brigade delay module; the smallest BBD in eurorack. Besides nice flanger and delay effects, at full CW settings of TIME and feedback knobs it can produce extreme sonic artefacts. Take note that this BBD unit doesn't have any kind of post delay filter therefore the higher the delay time setting the higher the produced noise in the output!
Pico SEQ2 is straight-forward, full analogue 4 step sequencer/waveshaper with adjustable sequence length. If you want to have a simple, compact stepped modulation source in your setup, then this is it! Particularly interesting use of the Pico SEQ2 is waveshaping – just apply any audio source to the CLK IN, tweak the knobs and be amazed!
Erica Synths Pico Multi is an advanced replacement for stackable patchcables – it’s highly accurate active buffered multiple that will work for signal splitting in any circuit, including driving several VCOs in tune from one CV source.
PSU Input module
If you consider to use rack ears to mount Erica Synths 84HP enclosure in the studio rack, you may want to access the PSU connection from the front of the case, instead of the top. Then the 4HP PSU connection module is a solution. PSU Input module is intended to be used with external PSUs which provide an output voltage from +9V to +12V ("+" in the centre).
Erica Synths Black Multi is highly accurate active buffered 2x1to3 or 1to6 multiple that will work for signal splitting in any circuit, including driving several VCOs in tune from one CV source. “Octave” or +-1V offset switches on both channels allow to add or subtract one volt form each channel thus transposing VCOs one octave up or down. Hidden feature - custom offset - allows to set user defined offset on the first channel.
