Erica Synths Das Kleine Fusion Vacuum Tube Synthesizer

Erica Synths has introduced Das Kleine Fusion, the ‘younger sibling’ of their Fusion System II vacuum tube based Eurorack modular synthesizer.

They say that Das Kleine Fusion is intended for use with an external FX units, so they omitted the Fusion Delay module and made the system more compact and affordable.

Das Kleine Fusion includes:

  • Two Fusion VCO2s – fully analog 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.
  • 84HP One Row Skiff case
  • 20 patch cables

Das Klein Fusion is available now for € 1600.00.

  1. Naming your product in a foreign language is somewhere between problematic, ridiculous or, in this case, rather painful.

    Please don’t.

    1. They do that by naming any of their products in English… Erica is a Latvian company. Try to be a little less xenophobic.
