Spring reverbs are some of our favorite effects, especially when looking for a certain vintage sound. The market offers a number of alternative options (including the good old and affordable Doepfer A-199) but it’s about time someone tries to do something different. Kudos to Erica Synths then, for bringing their new Black Spring Reverb module to the market, offering a different take on spring reverberation units.
Why It’s Different
Firstly, it has built-in vactrol based audio compressor, secondly, it can operate an external tank and combination of both internal and external ones for effects unheard before, thirdly, in order to animate the reverb effect, the module has built-in feedback effects – pitch shifters, delay, ring-modulator, etc; feedback amount and effect parameters can be controlled manually and via CV, making the module an experimental instrument on its own.
The Black Spring Reverb module comes with a compact spring reverberation tank which can be easily installed in most eurorack cases.
