Erica Synths is presenting some of their exciting new products at Superbooth 2018, and we are there to get the news and bring it home.

There’s quite a bit of stuff, so let’s begin (and stay tuned for our videos)!

Techno System
Erica Synths Techno System is a set of 15 modules put together as one of the most advanced techno/industrial music performance instruments. It contains set of new analogue drum modules, advanced drum/loop sampler, fat sounding fully analogue synth voice designed for screaming acid basslines.

The Drum Sequencer provides complete control over the system, Mixers glues everything together with built in vactrol-based compressors and Dual Drive and Dual FX take classic drum sounds to the next level and adds the
bite to the overall mix.

Every module has CV control over most important parameters for true modular functionality and dynamics of performance.
