Erica Synths launches six new modules for the Techno System

At this year’s Superbooth we were treated to a full-on system from Erica Synths. What was initially supposed to be just a few modules to complement its Drum Sequencer module turned into a complete instrument called the Techno System.

Fast-forward a few months and the Latvian firm has announced six new modules.

[Press Release]

The company’s Techno System will be a set of 15 modules put together, as one of the most advanced techno/industrial music performance instruments ever created. The Techno System contains a set of new analogue drum modules, advanced drum/loop sampler, and a fat sounding fully analogue synth voice designed for screaming acid basslines.

Meantime, a dedicated Drum Sequencer provides complete control over the system, while Mixers glue the sound sources together with built in vactrol-based compressors. Additionally, Dual Drive and Dual FX modules take classic drum sounds to the next level, adding bite to the overall mix.

Every module has CV control over most important parameters for true modular functionality and dynamics of performance. Following is a detailed description of each module:
