Compact modular system with full analogue design - desktop version
Notes: Eurorack innovators Erica Synths pack as much as possible into a compact case with their Pico system. Huge sonic potential and clever card-based patch preset system.
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 Erica Synths shop.
Desktop unit includes: 20 patch cables, 1 Hosa stackable cable, PSU, 5 factory preset & 5 DIY voice-cards, user manual and patch note sheets.
Reprogrammable synthesiser & sound processor - 2019 version
Notes: The Organelle has grown from a 'device' to a full-fledged instrument and can keep up with your new musical ideas anywhere you go and anywhere they take you.
New features liberate the Organelle so it's ready to go at any time - just turn it on and play in impromptu music environments. It offers an immediate, full-spectrum music-making experience - be playful or intentional in the studio or wherever you find inspiration. You're now free to make music in an easier way.
The Organelle has also been upgraded with a faster processor, twice as much RAM, and an improved web interface for patch management and link sessions.
In other words, with its new onboard mic, speaker and 'AA' battery power:
- Making music with the Organelle is more direct and adaptable to situation/user (less gear needed)
- The Organelle is portable and autonomous
- The Organelle is a more powerful instrument that also affords more spontaneous/silly opportunities
