Erica Synths has announced that three new modules in their Fusion series – a new line of vacuum tube Eurorack modules – are now available.
The Erica Synths Fusion series combine vacuum tubes and semiconductors to bring the ‘warm, powerful sound and crazy overdrive possibilities of vacuum tubes’ into your modular system.
Five modules have been announced: VCO Mixer, Delay/Chorus, VCA, Ring Modulator and Filter.
Here are details on the new Fusion vacuum tube modules:
Fusion VCO Mixer
The Erica Fusion dual VCO Mixer module is designed to mix several waveforms from your VCOs in order to get interesting and unique waveshapes. It also can be used as a waveshaper, if you apply PW modulated pulse signal to one of the inputs – it will radically change resulting waveform in real time.
A special feature of this mixer – tube distortion effects, with the level knobs all the way clockwise.
You are not limited to mixing only VCO signals – the module works with any audio signal. Since the module features two mixers, you can use it even for stereo applications.
The Fusion VCO mixer is priced at 290EUR, +21% VAT for individual customers in EU without EU VAT registration number. See the Erica Synths site for details.
The Erica Fusion VCA module uses pentode tube 6Z1P and works as classical VCA, with great tube distortion when the input level knob is full up.
The Fusion VCA is priced at 170EUR, +21% VAT for individual customers in EU without EU VAT registration number. See the Erica Synths site for details.
Fusion Ring Modulator
The Erica Fusion Ring modulator module uses pentode tube 6Z1P and it multiplies two signals to create unique waveforms rich in partials, bell like sounds, as well as tube distortion effects.
The Fusion Ring Modulator is priced at 170EUR, +21% VAT for individual customers in EU without EU VAT registration number. See the Erica Synths site for more information.
Note: Erica Fusion modules have insignificant (max 15mA) power consumption from eurorack power supply unit (PSU), but they require separate, easy to install 6VAC PSU for tube heaters. Erica Fusion 6VAC PSU is designed to power up to 7 Erica Fusion modules and is available from Erica Synths SHOP or comes for free with purchase of 2 or more Erica Fusion modules.
