This video, via ProckGnosis, is an intro and user review of the Dreadbox Erebus synthesizer module.
The video covers:
- Test of the waveforms
- Test sweep of the filter (with zero and full resonance)
- Discussion of some of the features in comparison to the Murmux Semi-Modular (also from Dreadbox)

Despite belonging to an over saturated analog mono synth market (well this guy is paraphonic to be fair), this thing sound big, fat, and fantastic. If I had the scratch I would buy it, it just sounds huge.
Not sure why anybody would think having lots of synth options is a bad thing!
There’s no such thing as “too many monosynths”.
I’d get it just for the mix of analog, duophonic and built-in delay, this little synth could be a very underestimated piece of brilliant equipment.
Yes!!! And for the fact someone designing such a great thing deserves to be able to make more great stuff!
this is a very great analog semi modular paraphonic synth !!! really good built and sounds !!! dreadbox are awesome…. 🙂 cheers!!!!!
Getting mine in a few weeks. For the analog gooeyness but mainly for the fun factor. John, the guy who designs the Dreadbox machines, really knows his stuff.
Looks like my Doepfer Dark Energy
Nice little synth but what kind of soldering had been applied? SMT I guess? If so it will loose quite a bunch of synth addicts.
Most synths, including analog, that are made today feature SMT components. It detracts nothing from their sound or usefulness. It only makes them difficult to repair.
ASide from kit built DIY, the only current synths that I know of that feature through-hole components entirely are the Boomstars. It is so unusual that they go out of their way to mention it in ad copy.
It says on the info page on the Dreadbox website the Erebus only uses Through-hole components.
Thanks for this information! That will please a lot of people!
Agree with you that SMT will not function different but trough hole will indeed be easier to be repaired.
On their web site they state its only through hole components
Wonder how can they fit them in such a small box..
If it’s anything like the Murmux semi modular, it’ll have 2 pcbs, one for the knobs, and one sound board. The sound board for the semi modular is surprisingly small for such a big sound.
Yeah, the board is not very large on these. There is an image of it in the manual.
