Erica Synths has introduced three new modules - Erica Black VCF, Erica Black Output Module v2 and Erica Pico Trigger to Gate. Here's what they have to say about them...
Erica Black VCF is dual multimode filter with CV control over cutoff and resonance for serious modular patches. The core of the VCF is highly stable, custom multimode VCF chip AS3320. It can be used as two independent VCFs with simultaneous HP, BP and LP outputs, controls can be linked for stereo application and both VCFs can be chained in series or parallel to the summing output for ultimate modulations. Bonus feature – 16 band spectrum analyser – gives visual feedback on what happens on summing output.
Main features for Black Dual VCF
• Two identical multimode VCFs
• Simultaneous HP, BP and LP outputs
• Summing output
• CV control over Cutoff and Resonance
• CV level attenuverters
• Link switch for controlling both VCFs with one cutoff or resonance knob
• 16 band spectrum analyser
• Skiff-friendly design
The Erica Black Output Module v2 is a high quality output mixer and stereo panner with balanced outputs and headphone amplifier for monitoring your modular masterpieces. All inputs are buffered, we use stereo potentiometers (found in high quality studio mixers) for panning, IN4 is stereo input with simultaneous level adjustment for both channels, IN3 has a CV controlled autopan function.
Erica Pico Trigger to Gate module is one of few modules around that converts triggers to gates using smart algorithms that enhance your musical compositions and rhythm patterns. The module can turn a simple trigger sequencer into powerful musical pattern generator. The module was created inspired by Ryoji Ikeda compositions.
Main features for Pico Trigger to Gate:
• Manually and CV controlled gate length
• Manually and CV controlled gate skipping probability
• Triggered and Independent modes
• Incoming trigger in and output gate control LEDs
