The vacuum tube-based modules of the Erica Synths Fusion System II impart unique sound character, while enabling deep and saturated tones.
Riga, Latvia, June 9, 2020 — Erica Synths is proud to announce that its Fusion System II is now available for customers to purchase around the world. Fusion System II is a Eurorack-based modular synthesizer for artists seeking extreme tube-based tones, unconventional modulations and creativity-inspiring patching. The 104HP system features 63 patch-points for extensive possibilities in sound design, in addition to an all-analogue signal and CV path. Indeed, it is a system for those who take sound design seriously.
Fusion System II includes three brand new Fusion series modules as part of a comprehensive system: Fusion VCF3, Fusion Modulator (both already available for individual purchase) and Fusion VCA/Waveshaper/Ringmodulator (available from June 16th).
Fusion System II includes:
- Two Fusion VCO2s: Fully analogue sound source with three simultaneously available waveforms, transistor-based suboscillator and detune function – two BBD delay lines that make frequency shifter that is mixed back to the principal oscillator in order to emulate two detuned VCOs. Tube crunch – distinct tube overdrive - is added on the top of the mix.
- Fusion VCF3 – resonant 24dB/oct lowpass filter of unique design that combines vacuum tubes and vactrols, providing distinct, soft filtering. For more versatility a CV recorder, that records motion of the potentiometer, is incorporated in the module, so you can design advanced modulation patterns.
- Fusion Modulator - complex, all analogue CV source that consists of several blocks – two EMS Synthi functionality inspired looping envelope generators with simultaneous unipolar (0V-10V) and bipolar (-5V-+5V), VCA, Noise generator and Sample&Hold.
- Fusion VCA/Waveshaper/Ringmodulator – a modulation source based on two miniature pentodes that operates as VCA, waveshaper and ringmodulator. With two CVs applied simultaneously to different stages of the VCA, audio rate modulations, using ringmodulator as a waveshaper it becomes surprisingly versatile sound shaping module.
- Fusion Delay/Flanger/Vintage Ensemble – a distinct multifunctional analogue effects module that combines BBD chip based effects with an adjustable tube overdrive in the delay output and a feedback path for extra thickness of the sound.
- 104HP One Row Skiff case (with or without a lid)
- 20 patch cables
Fusion System II is available for €1,950 MSRP (VAT excl.) - without case lid and €2,030 (VAT excl.) - with case lid. For more information please visit the Erica Synths product page.
