Erica Synth add three new modules and a Techno System
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.
