A couple of months ago, Erica Synths launched a brand new VCA in its tube-powered Fusion range, revealing it can do more than your average voltage-controlled amplifier. In fact, the full title gives the game away just a little.
The VCA/Waveshaper/Ringmodulator module, as the name suggests, has a few extra tricks up its sleeve. The module also includes a built-in, CV-controlled ring modulator, plus manual overdrive and manual bias controls to further shape your signal.
And today, the Latvian manufacturer has announced the VCA/Waveshaper/Ringmodulator is available to buy now from the Erica Synths website (opens in new tab) for €290.
