Erica Synths Reveals FUSION SYSTEM II
Rounik Sethi on Thu, April 23rd 0 comments
Erica Synths use vacuum tubes in eurorack modules, and those, who are familiar with tube-based modules, know that tubes can push the sound to extremes or turn it deep, saturated and complete.

Erica Synths have come up with three new Fusion series modules. 

  • Fusion VCF3
  • Fusion Modulator 
  • Fusion VCA/Waveshaper/Ringmodulator 

These new modules create the Erica Synths Fusion System II – a modular synthesiser for sounds of unprecedented pressure, unconventional modulations and creativity-inspiring patching. A 104HP system has 63 patchpoints for extensive experiments in sound design, all analogue signal and CV path; it’s a system for those, who take a sound design seriously. 

 

 

Fusion System II includes: 

  • Two Fusion VCO2s – fully analogue sound source with three simultaneously available waveforms, transistor-based suboscillator and detune function – two BBD delay lines that make frequency shifter that is mixed back to the principal oscillator in order to emulate two detuned VCOs. Tube crunch – distinct tube overdrive - is added on the top of the mix. 
  • Fusion VCF3 – resonant 24dB/oct lowpass filter of unique design that combines vacuum tubes and vactrols, providing distinct, soft filtering. For more versatility a CV recorder, that records motion of the potentiometer, is incorporated in the module, so you can design advanced modulation patterns. 
  • Fusion Modulator - complex, all analogue CV source that consists of  several blocks – two EMS Synthi functionality inspired looping envelope generators with simultaneous unipolar (0V-10V) and bipolar (-5V-+5V), VCA, Noise generator and Sample&Hold. 
  • Fusion VCA/Waveshaper/Ringmodulator – a modulation source based on two miniature pentodes that operates as VCA, waveshaper and ringmodulator. With two CVs applied simultaneously to different stages of the VCA, audio rate modulations, using ringmodulator as a waveshaper it becomes surprisingly versatile sound shaping module. 
  • Fusion Delay/Flanger/Vintage Ensemble – a distinct multifunctional analogue effects module that combines BBD chip based effects with an adjustable tube overdrive in the delay output and a feedback path for extra thickness of the sound. 
  • 104HP One Row Skiff case (with or without a lid)
  • 20 patch cables

    Available from June 5th

    RRP: 1950 (VAT excl.) - without case lid

    RRP: 2030 (VAT excl.) - with case lid 

 

F U S I O N  VCA / WAVESHAPER / RINGMODULATOR

F U S I O N  VCA / WAVESHAPER / RINGMODULATOR

The Fusion VCA –Waveshaper - Ringmodulator is a complex modulation source that combines VCA, waveshaper and ringmodulator.

It’s not a regular VCA; it can operate as one, but most of the power of the module is in advanced modulations – with two CVs applied simultaneously to different stages of the VCA, audio rate modulations, using ringmodulator as a waveshaper – your imagination is a limit!

Features: 

  • Fully analogue design
  • Vacuum tube based VCA – two miniature pentodes for better gain reduction
  • Two unconventional CV controls – CVs are not mixed, but they control different grid voltages of the tubes
  • Manual VCA bias control
  • Manual overdrive
  • Input corossfader
  • Built-in ringmodulator
  • Direct switch for conventional VCA mode
  • Low power consumption due to miniature vacuum tubes

Available from June 5th
RRP: 290 (VAT excl.)

F U S I O N VCF3

F U S I O N VCF3

The Fusion VCF3 is resonant 24dB/oct lowpass filter of unique design that combines vacuum tubes and vactrols providing distinct, soft filtering.

For more versatility, the independent audio mixer and buffered multiple is incorporated in the module, and, most importantly – a CV recorder that records motion of the potentiometer, so you can design advanced modulation patterns.

Features: 

  • Fully analogue design
  • Vacuum tube and vactrol based filter circuit. Because of vactrol lag, 
    the VCF will not accept audio rate modulation, the maximum 
    modulation frequency is 10Hz
  • Input signal mixer with gain 2 for signal overdrive
  • Buffered multiple for splitting audio and CV signals
  • Potentiometer motion record unit with CV and gate outputs
  • Recorded CV multiplication and division

RRP: 330 (VAT excl.)

F U S I O N MODULATOR

F U S I O N MODULATOR

Fusion Modulator is a complex, all analogue modulation source with lots of distinct features. It consists of several blocks – two EMS Synthi functionality inspired looping envelope generators with simultaneous unipolar (0V-10V) and bipolar (-5V-+5V), VCA, Noise generator and Sample&Hold.

This makes Fusion Modulator a versatile modulation source for advanced modular setups, especially drone music oriented ones. Set lopping envelope generators to high frequencies and have two sub bass sound sources, use VCA to control the amplitude of the envelope signal, modulate the decay time by random voltages from S&H circuit and get ever evolving sonic awesomeness!

Features: 

  • Fully analogue design
  • Two looping envelope generators with Attack, On, Decay and Off time control
  • CV control over Decay time
  • Simultaneous unipolar (0V-10V) and bipolar (-5V - +5V) envelope outputs
  • Manual trigger button
  • End of Cycle output
  • VCA with the offset control
  • Zener diode based white noise source
  • Sample&Hold circuit with internal and external clock source

Available now
RRP: 310 (VAT excl.)
