Black Dual ASR EG
The Black Dual ASR EG is a versatile, full analogue looping AD/ASR envelope generator with voltege control over attack and release times, that can also be used as low frequency oscillator with manually and voltage controlled shape and rate. It has two identical parts, each featuring all typical envelope generator controls and bonus features – the end of the cycle output and bi-polar LFO output. When in loop mode the shortest attack and decay settings turn the module into voltage controlled drone oscillator with adjustable waveform (it will not track 1V/oct, though).
The Fusion VCA/Waveshaper/Ringmodulator is a complex sound processor that combines VCA, waveshaper and ringmodulator. It’s not a regular VCA; it can operate as one, but most of the power of the module is in advanced modulations – with two CVs applied simultaneously to different stages of the VCA, audio rate modulations, using ringmodulator as a waveshaper – your imagination is the limit!
The Fusion VCF3 is resonant 24dB/oct lowpass filter of unique design that combines vacuum tubes and vactrols, providing distinct, soft filtering. For more versatility, the independent audio mixer and buffered multiple is incorporated in the module, and, most importantly – a CV recorder that records motion of the potentiometer, so you can design advanced modulation patterns.
Want some distorted drums or thicken up the final mix but you are short in rack space? Pico Drive is the answer! Pico Drive is combined wavefolder overdrive module that features manually adjustable Gain and Drive level, CV control over Gain and Drive adds more expression, while built in limiter prevents output signal to run into undesired clipping.
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.
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 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.
Pico LFO/S&H is full analogue modulations source – LFO and Sample and Hold – to provide some controlled randomness to your modular setup.
Black Modulator V2
Erica Synths Black Modulator is a modulation and noise source
Erica Synths full analogue hi-hats module with accent and manual and CV control over Tone and Decay (individual for each hi-hat) allows you to create lot of variations in hi-hats track. Closed hat and Open hat can be played independently or exclusively (Open hat will not trigger, if Closed hat is triggered). The module is developed in collaboration with French company e-licktronic.
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.
