Erica Synths Expanded The Pico Lineup With 8 New Eurorack Modules For Superbooth 19

Ahead of Superbooth 2019, Erica Ericas has expanded their beloved Pico lineup with 6 new Eurorack modules for Superbooth 2019. The SB19 announcement includes a new VCO, percussion sound generator, analog sequencer/waveshaper combo, LPG, ring modulator, noise generator, LFO & S&H and a brand new analog bucket brigade delay.

A lot of little sweet extensions for the Pico system that makes it even more versatile.

Erica Pico DRUM 2 is a compact yet versatile percussion sounds generator. It features 8 algorithms of percussion sounds – Kick drum, Snare Drum, Hi-Hats, Clap and others – see the table of algorithms below! Each algorithm has 3 adjustable parameters (the third type is decay), two of which are CV controlled. For each algorithm, you can save your preferred parameter settings and recall them instantly during the live performance.

  • 8 percussion algorithms
  • Three parameters per algorithm
  • CV control over two parameters
  • Parameter setting memory
  • Input protection against overvoltage
  • Protection against reverse PSU connection

Erica Pico SEQ2 is straight-forward, full analog 4 step sequencer/waveshaper with adjustable sequence length. If you want to have a simple, compact stepped modulation source in your setup, then this is it! Particularly interesting use of the Pico SEQ2 is waveshaping – just apply any audio source to the CLK IN, tweak the knobs and be amazed!

  • Up to 4 steps analog sequencer
  • Step count selection 2-3-4
  • Full analog circuit
  • Input and output protection against overvoltage
  • Protection against reverse PSU connection

Erica Pico RING is a balanced modulator (quadrant multiplier) circuit to create bell-like, metallic or robotic sounds. It has built-in triangle wave modulation oscillator for more versatility.

  • Full analog circuit
  • Built-in triangle wave oscillator
  • Input level attenuators
  • Input and output protection against overvoltage
  • Protection against reverse PSU connection

Erica Pico NOISE is a versatile noise and percussion sounds source. It consists of white a noise generator, a resonant VCF to generate various colors of the noise – from extremely dark ones to high pitched resonant sweeps and a VCA/decay envelope generator combination to create a range of percussion sounds to emulate hi-hats, cymbals and even sine tone-based percussion when the resonance is full up.

  • White noise generator
  • Resonant VCF for coloured noise
  • VCA and decay envelope combo for percussion sounds
  • Input and output protection against overvoltage
  • Protection against reverse PSU connection

Erica Pico LFO/S&H is full analog modulations source – LFO with simultaneous triangle and pulse wave outpus and Sample and Hold – to provide some controlled randomness to your modular setup. It can also work as a clock source.

  • Full analog circuit
  • LFO with triangle and square wave outputs
  • Highly stable S&H circuit based on AS1100CK2 IC
  • Input and output protection against overvoltage
  • Protection against reverse PSU connection

Erica Pico BBD is full analog 4092 stage bucket brigade delay module; the smallest BBD in eurorack. Besides nice and clean flanger and delay effects, at full CW settings of TIME and feedback knobs, it can produce extreme sonic artifacts.

  • full analogue circuit
  • 4092 stage BBD chip
  • Up to 300ms delay time
  • Very clean sound
  • CV control over delay time
  • Input and output protection against overvoltage
  • Protection against reverse PSU connection

Erica Pico VCO2 

When we decided to expand the Pico series, we realized, we need more analog designs. Therefore we give you Erica Pico VCO2 – powerful, full analog VCO with great tracking over 8 octaves just in 3HP! Combine two of those, add some PWM and have a sound of real analog beast!

  • Manual TUNE and PWM controls
  • +-1 octave switch
  • 1V/oct input with good tracking across 8 octaves
  • PWM CV input
  • Pulse and triangle waveform outputs
  • Input protection against overvoltage
  • Protection against reverse PSU connection

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.

  • Classical LPG sound
  • VCA and VCF modes
  • Configurable resonance
  • Built-in Decay envelope
  • Input protection against overvoltage
