Erica Synths Black Sequencer – 4 Channels Of Modular Joy

Erica Synths just added a Black Sequencer to their growing Eurorack module list, and it’s as hot as you would come to expect from the Latvian company.

The Black Sequencer features 4 channels with CV, gate and modulation outputs, up to 64 step sequences that can be chained into songs, independent track time divisions, multiplications and lengths.

It includes a built-in quantizer, LFOs, envelope generators, parameter randomization, a MIDI in/out and many other features essential for composing and performing electronic and experimental music. According to Erica Synths, Black Sequencer strikes a good balance between options and ease of use.

Will this Black Sequencer be the next inspiration for Uli’s notebook? Oh well, time will tell. In the meantime let’s have a look at the…
