Erica Synths - Fusion VCO
There is something about Erica Synths - Fusion VCO. In a word we could say that it sounds "just right". It won't give too much coloration, neither it will tear apart and eat your mixer module alive. This is the sound where no further "adjustments" are needed to get it right. Brilliant job guys!
Erica Synths Fusion VCO is special kind of VCO – it fuses great tuning of digital VCO with warm, unique sound of vacuum tubes that work in suboscillator circuit.
Two double triodes in bistable latch connection act as suboscillators: -1 and -2 octaves with plenty of mixing opportunities for amazing sonic results. External audio signal can replace internal VCO. If you wish to go really low frequencies and have a sound that sets your modular system apart from mass – this is exactly module, you need!
3 basic waveforms (sine, triangle and pulse) with VC morphing, for example, triangle morphs from sawtooth to ramp
Good 1V/oct tuning for 8 octaves
Vacuum tube based suboscillators -1 and -2 oct
Manual and CV controlled -1/-2 oct mixing
Adjustable suboscillator waveshape
Dry/Wet (VCO/suboscillators) mixing
Passive Lowpass filter for extreme subbass sound
Limited run of Fusion VCO V1 without CV on suboscillator mix. -1OCT and -2OCT mix is manual only in V1!
