Notes: USTA is a 4×4 tracks sequencer for voltages and gates with variable stage duration, designed to quickly see and edit multiple voltage relationships in real time.
Variable stage duration means that every single stage duration can be individually set in relation to the clock, instead of being constrained to a one-to-one ratio (i.e. one stage per every clock impulse).
4×4 tracks means that every stage can store and generate up to four separate voltages (two CVs and two gates), and that up to four independent stage sequences can be arranged into as many different tracks.
Its architecture is based on an array of 16 'Stages' which form a 'Pattern'; 16 patterns form a 'Track', and four tracks form a 'Project'. Within each track, each stage can provide two gates and two CVs, and a wide set of options is available to define and modify the value of each output ('Layers') and the way it is played ('Colours').
Every Stage is related to a dedicated stepped encoder for quick and intuitive editing, and all the 16 encoders are arranged in an oval layout with a circular playhead. Every encoder is surrounded by a ring of 16 LEDs and a RGB led, to provide a visual feedback of the current setting of that step basing on the layer you are working on (like raw CV, quantized CV, length, gate...) and the way it should play depending on the RGB colour.
Notes: The Endorphin.es Godspeed is sort of the single oscillator version of the famous Furthrrr Generator. From its big brother it takes over the digital Thru-Zero core and the legendary wavefolder. But it also has new features like a sub-oscillator output and an immensely practical autotune function.
Especially for people starting with a modular system this oscillator is highly recommended. On 6HP it delivers all the features (and more) needed for diving into the depths of West-Coast-Synthesis!
Stereo filter with voltage controlled resonance - 6HP
Notes: Versatile stereo digital filter based on Endorphin's Grand Terminal module. CV-controlled cutoff, resonance and separate high-pass filter. Simple but effective.
The Squawk Dirty To Me is a stereo filter with voltage controlled resonance. It features eight filter modes and zero-delay feedback.
- Simple and effective 6hp stereo VCF
- 8 filter modes available with meta CV scanning, famous zero-delay feedback Grand Terminal filters
- Additional hi-pass filter in series quickly cuts the boomy low end
Compact modular system with full analogue design - Eurorack version
Notes: Pico System III brings modular synthesis back to the basics - the system has multi functional (instead of single-function, like Pico Drums or Pico Trigger in the Pico System II) analogue modules and is intended to encourage creativity in modular patching.
The system has 31 inputs and 20 outputs (master output is duplicated) + 7 switches; if you have enough patch cables at your disposal, you can patch the system in 121000931215044250740178662400 or 1.21x1029 variations (we ignored the possibility to adjust potentiometers here). Even though only 0,0001% of all patches will sound more-less enjoyable, you and all your future generations can spend a lifetime only patching the Pico System III.
Voice-cards with preset patches set it apart from other eurorack systems - they allow user to change patches instantly and radically, which makes the system well suited for experimental live performances. The system comes with 5 great sounding "factory preset" voicecards, and 5 DIY voicecards that are empty and users can develop their own patches. More voicecards will be available from the Erica Synths shop.
Eurorack module includes: 1 Hosa stackable cable, ribbon power cable, 5 factory preset & 5 DIY voice-cards, user manual and patch note sheets.
Notes: Loquelic Iteritas is a digital VCO with interpretations of three classic synthesis algorithms involving dual pitch control. It creates a huge variety of sounds parameterized by four tone and two pitch controls.
It has had glowing reviews from Surgeon and Surachai, and I am personally very excited about this module!
It has a simple interface, with 3 different synthesis algorithms allied to a number of different controls / CV inputs which have different effects, depending on which mode you choose. Simply hook up a number of modulation sources to the 4 inputs and start wiggling!
Portable 2HP power module for compact skiff cases with dual passive mults
Notes: The power module from Endorphin.es is a module for the power supply of smaller modular systems such as skiff cases up to 104 TE width. The module consumes DC power between 12 and 20 volts from an external power supply unit. Voltages of up to +1000 mA and -700 mA are output, also depending on how strong the connected power supply is. In addition, there are two passive multiples.
32 step sequencer with fractal-like pattern generation
Notes: If we're honest we don't really understand fractals. Something to do with maths, apparently. But that doesn't really matter because we do understand this sequencer module, which is ideal for randomly twisting and morphing sequences.
Bloom is a fractal sequencer capable of generating infinitely evolving melodies with a host of musical features.
At its core is a powerful 32 step sequencer with two independent channels and an intuitive interface. What makes the Bloom come alive are its fractal algorithms which can transform existing sequences into powerful melodies, or even generate new patterns altogether. The base sequence is known as the Trunk and can be programmed by hand, or automatically generated with the Mutate function. Once a Trunk sequence is in place, fractal transformations are only a knob turn away by using the Branch and path controls. Each new Branch adds a complete variation to the base sequence and Path determines its passage through the set of recursively generated sub-sequences, offering a unique take on the melody with each turn of the knob.
Notes: Erica Pico LPG is our take on classical Don Buchla LPG designs. We use vactrols in the circuit for that signature sound, and we added some more features, like configurable resonance and built-in decay envelope.
High fidelity audio processor focused on granular synthesis
Notes: 2hp Grain is a high-fidelity audio processor focused on granular synthesis. It's capable of generating granular clouds, microsound phrases, and unique textures that are derived from any input signal. The Density control sets the rate of granularization applied to the input signal and sets its position within the buffer. The Mix control sets the balance between live input and the granular audio stream for dialling in the perfect combination of sounds. In addition, there is a frequency control and associated v/oct input allowing for pitch accurate sequencing of grains. Particle patching has never been smaller with Grain.
Digital oscillator module with sub output & wavefolding - black
Notes: Sine is a harmonically pure VCO with two distinct outputs.
The primary output contains a perfect sine wave with a wide frequency range and pristine volt per octave tracking. The Sub output features two sine tones that can be blended together to achieve a mix of one octave below, or a fifth above the primary output's frequency.
In addition, both outputs have an internal wavefolder that adds harmonic content to the signal allowing for spectrally complex tones within a single module. Keep your tones pure (or not!) with Sine.
Notes: Ataraxic Iteritas Magnus is an extension of the first Eurorack module, the Ataraxic Translatron. AIM starts with one of three bit tables shaped via variable interpolation that is then scrolled through, amplitude modulated, folded, and distorted by the CV-controllable front panel controls. Subby basses, metallic drones, unrelentingly digital timbres and more are all to be had from the AIM. Ataraxic Iteritas Magnus is the 5U version of the Ataraxic Iteritas. Guaranteed to make the fax machine jealous on an even bigger scale.
Four-channel precision adder, buffered mult, and transposition tool
Notes: Quantus Pax is a four-channel precision adder, buffered multiple, and polyphonic transposition utility. Each channel has two CV inputs and can be further modified by the three Xpose inputs. QP is made with high quality low-tolerance resistors for unbeatable accuracy. Patch-wide key changes, polyphonic movement, mathematically derived melodies, and more are all to be had with this simple but useful utility.
