Here’s what they have to say about the new module:
One of the many characteristics that attracted me to modular synthesizers is that they enabled me to make the kind of music that I love away from the computer.
However, not all digital audio tools can be elegantly and efficiently realized in a dedicated hardware form. So, I either had to deny myself those tools, or, go to the computer.
The ER-301 is the culmination of 2 years of sweat and tears spent creating a third option.
Orthogonal Devices ER-301 Sound Computer Architecture
The ER-301 has 20 inputs that can be use for audio or control voltages and four audio outputs.
Here’s a video intro:
The developer notes that the ER-301 hardware is mature, but the software is still under developments and may contain bugs. They recommend that if you are thinking about purchasing the ER-301 but do not have the patience for an occasional bug and some half-implemented features, wait about 3-4 months before purchasing.
