Erica Synths Intros DIY Envelope Generator Kit

Erica Synths today introduced another module in its educational DIY line, mki x es.EDU, created in cooperation with Moritz Klein.

The latest module is a versatile envelope generator, which join the recently announced VCO and VCF modules. The EDU DIY EG is described as ‘a slightly optimized ADSR envelope generator’, since it has only three controls. With sustain on, it outputs an ASR (attack/sustain/release) envelope, but when the sustain is set to a minimum, it becomes an AD (attack/decay) envelope generator, that ignores gate length.

Release and decay are controlled by the same knob, while a looping function and an inverted output make the module versatile for complex patches.

The mki x es.EDU project will consist of 9 kits, in addition to the DIY enclosure and PSU. This includes a sequencer, a VCO, a wavefolder, a noise/S&H module, a mixer, a VCF, an envelope generator, a dual VCA and an output stereo mixer with a headphone amplifier.

Note: The full EDU DIY system is designed to have 2 EG modules, so order 2 EG kits, if you’re wanting to build the entire system.

Pricing and Availability:

The EDU DIY EG is available now at the Erica Synths web shop for €55 EUR (VAT excl.)/ $69 USD.
