Erica Synths Announces Three Eurorack Modules, Plus Graphic VCO Firmware Update

Erica Synths has introduced three new Eurorack modules, available immediately.

The new modules include two Pico units — an LFO/Sample-and-Hold module and a 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: The Pico LFO/S&H module is full analogue modulations source — including both LFO and Sample-and-Hold. It provides a new dimension of controlled randomness to your modular setup, in a small package.

Features of the Pico LFO/S&H include:

  • Full analogue circuit
  • LFO with triangle and square wave outputs
  • Highly stable S&H circuit based on AS1100CK2 IC
  • Input and output protection against over-voltage
  • Protection against reverse PSU connection

Pico Mixer: Meantime, Pico Mixer is a 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 control voltage (VC) and audio attenuator.

The Pico Mixer Features:

  • 3 inputs
  • Diode protection against over-voltage

PSU 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. The 4HP PSU (power supply unit) connection module is a solution for this.

Pricing and Availability

Recommended retail pricing for the new Pico modules and the PSU Input Module are as follows: Pico LFO S&H – 80€ (VAT excl.); Pico Mixer – 50€ (VAT excl.); and PSU Input Module – €15 (VAT excl.). The new modules are available now, via dealers worldwide, and through the Erica Synths website.

Additional information, including technical specifications, also available via Erica Synths.LV.

Erica Synths have also announced the Graphic VCO firmware update 1.1. (Instructions for updating firmware available at this link.)

With the updated firmware, Graphic VCO users will be able to access the following new features and upgrades:

  • DRUM mode (allows to use GVCO as a drum voice)
  • Fine tuning
  • Calibration
  • Minor bug fixes
