Meantime, the Black High Pass VCF is also designed for analog purists who take sound design seriously. It is a highly stable, 24dB/oct resonant high pass VCF with voltage control over cutoff and resonance. Bonus features include a built in post-filter overdrive circuit with user adjustable drive amount and the Black Filter Coupler connector.

Black High Pass VCF features:

  • Voltage control over cutoff and resonance
  • Gain loss compensation on high resonance
  • Cutoff CV attenuverter
  • Adjustable post filter overdrive circuit

Finally, the Black Filter Coupler is a satellite module to the Black High Pass VCF and the Black Low Pass VCF. It adds Bandpass and Band Reject filter functionality, both with adjustable center frequency and bandwidth, while both VCFs still can operate on their own. All modules have manual and CV control over all parameters; this adds unprecedented nuances in sound design for your modular system.

Black Filter Coupler features:

  • Bandpass and Band reject filters
  • Manually adjustable center frequency and bandwidth
  • Voltage control over center frequency and bandwidth

Please note: the Black Filter Coupler is designed to work exclusively with both the Black High pass VCF and the Black Low Pass VCF.

The Black Low Pass VCF, Black High Pass VCF and Black Filter Coupler are available now and priced at $189, $189 and $109 respectively.  For more information or to order, please visit the Erica Synths webshop.

Erica synths announces new generation Black sequencer

A New Generation of Sequencing: Erica Synths Announces Black Sequencer
Erica Synths’ Black Sequencer takes classical modular sequencing to a new level by adding tons of features required for contemporary modular synthesizersNovember 20, 2020 — Erica Synths announces the arrival of its long-anticipated Black Sequencer Eurorack module, which is shipping at the beginning of December. 

Sequencing power for a new generation of synthesists
The Black Sequencer features four channels with CV, gate and modulation outputs, and up to 64 step sequences that can be chained into songs, independent track time divisions, multiplications and lengths. It ncludes a built-in quantizer, LFOs, envelope generators, parameter randomization, a MIDI in/out and many other features essential for composing and performing electronic and experimental music. Despite the Black Sequencer’s depth of features, it provides many programmable parameters per step. Further, it is intuitive, easy and straightforward to use, and can serve as a master controller for many modular setups. 

Features
4 CV/GATE/Modulation tracksMIDI IN and MIDI OUTClock and Reset In/Out16 encoders for easy sequence inputUp to 64 steps per patternSong mode – up to 64 patterns in chain, each pattern can be repeated up to 32 timesNote, Glide, Gate length and Modulation adjustment per stepProbability, repeats and ratcheting per stepMicrotonal tuningAdjustable shuffle per track, shuffle mode customizationTiming divisions/multiplications per trackBuilt-in quantizerRandom pattern generator16 banks of 16 pattern memorySD card slot for backup and firmware updates

Erica synths preorder for syntrx analog synthesizer now open!

Erica Synths Opens Pre-Ordering for SYNTRX analog synthesizerCollaboration between Erica Synths and engineers from Riga Technical University results in a new kind of user interface that inspires users to explore the sonic universeRiga, Latvia, February 20, 2020 — Erica Synths announces that it has opened pre-ordering for its new SYNTRX all analog synthesizer.  SYNTRX, which features three highly accurate VCOs and a inspiring new digitally controlled analog patch/mixer matrix, will begin shipping to customers in April on a first-come, first served basis. Since the very beginning of the company, Erica Synths has promoted experimental electronic music, developing instruments that enable musicians to unleash their creativity. When it comes to standalone instruments, one of most encouraging instruments in experimental music was the Synthi AKS. In the spirit of innovative collaboration, Erica Synths teamed up with engineers from Riga Technical University to develop a synthesizer with a user interface that challenges conventional wisdom in a sound design. The result is an instrument that will inspire users to explore the sonic universe and travel to previously undiscovered audible realms. SYNTRX is an all analog synthesizer developed from scratch. Following are features and specifications: 3 highly accurate VCOs that track great over 8 octavesOctave switch for the VCO1Sync option for the VCO2Noise generator with “color” filterResonant VCFRing modulatorSpring reverbASR/AD looping envelope generatorJoystick controllerInput amplifier with adjustable gain3 VCAsSample & Hold circuit with an individual clockOutput signal filterMechanical CV/audio signal level indicatorMIDI In and MIDI ThruBuilt in speakersDimensions: 309mm x 457mm x 115mm (with the joystick in centre position)Weight: 4.05 kg

Erica synths announces firmware update for graphic vco and more

Erica Synths Announces Three New Eurorack Modules and Graphic VCO Firmware Update
Pico LFO/S&H, Pico Mixer and PSU Input Module now shipping; New Graphic VCO firmware update features ‘drum’ mode’Riga, Latvia, July 8, 2019 — Erica Synths announces three new Eurorack modules, available immediately. The new modules include two Pico units — an LFO/S&H and Mixer — as well as a new power supply unit (PSU) input module. Additionally, the company announced a firmware update to its Graphic VCO, which adds significant new features requested by customers and also includes minor bug fixes. 
Pico LFO/S&H 
Pico LFO/S&H is full analogue modulations source — including both LFO and Sample and Hold —  providing a new dimension of controlled randomness to your modular setup in a small package. Pico LFO/S&HFeatures of the Pico LFO/S&H include: Full analogue circuitLFO with triangle and square wave outputsHighly stable S&H circuit based on AS1100CK2 ICInput and output protection against over-voltageProtection against reverse PSU connection Pico MixerPico Mixer
Meantime, Pico Mixer is simple 3 channel DC coupled mixer intended to mix audio signals and CV signals in order to obtain more complex modulations. The unit may also serve as a CV and audio attenuator. The Pico Mixer Features:3 inputsDiode protection against over-voltagePSU Input ModulePSU Input Module
If you would like to use rack ears to mount an Erica Synths 84HP enclosure in a studio rack, you may want to access the PSU connection from the front of the case rather than the top side. Then the 4HP PSU connection module is a solution for this.Recommended retail pricing for each new module is as follows: Pico LFO S&H – 80 EUR (VAT excl.)Pico Mixer  – 50 EUR (VAT excl.)PSU Input Module – 15 EUR (VAT excl.)Graphic VCO firmware 1.1New Graphic VCO firmware update
