Upcoming Modules from Erica Synths

via Erica Synths

"We are finally launching the Graphic VCO which allows you to draw your own waveforms, arrange them in wavetables and wavetable banks, morph between two selected waves and wavetables, alter the resulting wave in advanced ways (FXes) – apply FM, phase distortion, ring modulation, wavefold/wavewrap, bitcrush and modulate the effects with internal synced LFO.

Waves, wavetables, FXes and other settings can be saved and recalled from the memory instantly. The module has two outputs – the main output and the output with configurable suboscillator.

Erica Synths starts DRUM module series, and the aim is to develop extremely versatile Drum System. Drum modules are designed in collaboration with French company e-licktronic, famous for DIY drum machines NAVA and YOCTO.

DRUM SEQUENCER is designed to provide classical, 909-style sequencing with accents, it has intuitive user interface, live performance focus. In addition to Trigger/Accent outputs, the sequencer has CV/GATE output for synchronized basslines, and two LFOs for drum parameter modulation.

12x Accent outputs
1x CV/GATE track
2xLFO with independent or synced to the BPM frequency
Time signature per Track
Pattern length per Track
Shuffle per track
Probability per step
Retrigger per step
Instant pattern switching
Solo/Mute tracks
Step/Tap record modes
16 Banks of 16 Patterns
Instant pattern switching
Pattern linking
Midi sync in with start/stop
Track mode
Firmware upgrade via MIDI SySex


BASS DRUM and SNARE DRUM are full analogue, 909-inspired, modules for serious techno sound with lot of CV controlled parameters for modular setups.

More drum modules are in development – Toms, Clap, Rimshot, HiHats, Cymbals, sample-based drum module and, to pull all system together – dedicated a drum Mixer with extended headroom and a limiter of unique design.

The Sequencer, Bass Drum and Snare Drum are in production and will be available in the first weeks of March 2018.


Erica Synths has fully redesigned one of signature modules in Black Series – Black Hole DSP2.. Black Hole DSP2 comes with 24 custom effects, developed in by Erica Synths teamrider KODEK in collaboration with creator of Spin CAD software Gary Worsham. It comes with analogue Dry/Wet crossfade, 3 parameters per effect, distinct Crush feature that radically reduces sampling rate to 1kHz. Useful feature for live performances – all three parameters can be saved with the effect and they are recalled instantly with selecting the effect.

Black Hole DSP2 will be available on April 2018.


Our latest development – Resonant Equalizer features fully analogue signal path – 12 unique design (they are not “inspired by”) bandpass filters, that are digitally controlled for increased versatility. 12 band equalizer with manually and CV controlled band levels and resonance occupies only 20HP of rack space. Analogue filter boards will be exchangeable and provide different combinations of bands; the first one has 9 semitone distance between bands.

Fully analogue signal path
12 band equalizer
OLED screen
Manually and CV controlled band levels
Configurable CV control over band levels including one CV input sequentially controlling all bands
Band level randomization
Configurable CLOCK control over band level change, BPM sync
Patch memory – 6 banks of 6 patches
Interchangeable bandpass filter boards
Simple and easy user interface

The Resonant Equalizer will be available on May 2018

This one in via Liquid Sky Berlin.
