Pico EF & Pico VCA2

PICO EF

Pico EF is Erica Synths take on envelope follower module in 3hp! Pico EF features a preamp with +40dB gain (enough to boost even guitar and dynamic microphone signals for use in a modular system), envelope output with adjustable attack time and a gate output with adjustable threshold. The Pico EF can be used as a preamp, overdrive unit or for controlling VCFs with audio signal, or to use with external instruments to control your modular system in other creative and experimental applications.

PICO EF Features

  • Preamp with adjustable gain 
  • Audio overdrive possibility 
  • Envelope follower with an adjustable attack time 
  • Gate extractor with adjustable threshold 
  • Input protection against overvoltage 
  • Protection against reverse PSU connection

PICO VCA2

The Erica Synths Pico VCA2 is a compact voltage-controlled amplifier module, based on a reliable AS3330 chip. It features two independent channels, and the first one comes with the manual offset adjustment, useful for full span vibrato effects. Audio and CV inputs of the first VCA are normalized to the second one, so the module can also be used as a buffered audio splitter. VCAs are DC coupled, and they can be used for controlling the amplitude of control voltage signals.

PICO VCA2 Features

  • Two independent VCAs with a linear response 
  • Manual bias adjustment on the top VCA 
  • Input normalling 
  • DC coupling 
  • Input protection against overvoltage 
  • Protection against reverse PSU connection

Get more out of ring modulation & crossfading

Today we go in-depth with the brand new Erica Synths Black Ring-Fade, a eurorack module with two ring modulators, a build-in crossfader, and VCA. Both the ring modulators as well as the crossfader can be used as independent modules, but the internal routing makes it very suitable for advanced creative sound shaping.

In the video we start with an overview of the Black Ring-Fade, and then we dive into a series of patches in three sections. We look at ring modulation patches, crossfader patches, and finally a few patches utilizing all sections of the Ring-Fade.

BLACK DUAL ASR EG

The Black Dual ASR EG is a versatile, full analog looping AD/ASR envelope generator with voltage control over attack and release times, that can also be used as a low-frequency oscillator with a manually and voltage-controlled shape and rate. It has two identical parts, each featuring all typical envelope generator controls and bonus features – the end of the cycle output and bi-polar LFO output. When in loop mode the shortest attack and decay settings turn the module into a voltage-controlled drone oscillator with adjustable waveform (it will not track 1V/oct, though).

Starter Kits – Episode 04

After three episodes of Plaits, it’s time to go analog with the ‘Westcoast inspired Erica Synths Pico System III, Qu-Bit Bloom sequencer, and the insane Desmodus Versio reverb. The workflow is completely different and you’ll have to make your sounds from scratch. It sounds completely different too! Technically, it’s three modules, but Pico System III has 13 ‘pico’ modules stacked away under one faceplate. So it’s definitely a mini-modular with huge potential, but you have to discover it yourself!
