Erica Synth add three new mod­ules and a Techno Sys­tem

Future Music - - FILTER -

Not con­tent to demo just one or two mod­ules, Erica Synth de­buted a com­plete sys­tem at Superbooth 2018. The Techno Sys­tem com­prises 15 mod­ules, de­signed with techno, in­dus­trial and EBM-stylings in mind.

The sys­tem is driven by Erica’s but­ton-laden Drum Se­quencer, which first de­buted at NAMM. This feeds into an as­sort­ment of drum, synth, sam­ple and ef­fect units, of which three are new mod­ules mak­ing their de­but at Superbooth.

The first of th­ese is the Sam­ple Drum, a beat-fo­cussed sam­ple slicer with a host of CV trig­ger­ing op­tions and an SD card slot for user sam­ple im­port. This is joined by the new Dual FX mod­ule, which packs two FV-1 chips for cus­tom ef­fect pro­cess­ing, with a pair of pa­ram­e­ter knobs for live tweak­ing of each ef­fect en­gine.

Fi­nally, Bassline is a full ana­logue synth voice com­plete with VCF, VCA and sub-os­cil­la­tor. It also makes use of BBD chips to achieve a voice de­tune ef­fect. Ex­ter­nal CV in­puts al­low for fil­ter fre­quency mod­u­la­tion and os­cil­la­tor FM, while an ac­cent mode helps achieve that clas­sic acid bass sound.

Th­ese are joined by 909-in­spired bass and snare drums, which de­buted back in Jan­uary at NAMM.

The new mod­ules are set to ar­rive in June, with the full Techno Sys­tem close be­hind. No word as yet on price.
