Erica Synths has announced a second edition of their ACIDBOX that they say brings you emulation of widely recognized classical Russian synthesizer Polivoks Voltage Controlled Filter (VCF), packed in small desktop unit and enhanced with features for contemporary electronic music performances.

Erica Synths tells us that the ACIDBOX II sound circuit is built around rare Russian ICs that were used in the original Polivoks synthesizer back in the 1980s, therefore you get that famous analogue sound, insane resonance sweeps and straightforward, hands on control. They say that ACIDBOX II has significant improvements compared to the first version: redesigned LFO with the new waveforms and audio rate modulation capabilities, built in analogue noise generator, balanced output and many others.

  • Integrated circuits used in the original Polivoks
