... don't think I started an FX one, yet...

First up! Black Hole Stereo Delay.. new for '19.
Image

Erica Synths Black Stereo Delay is a hi-fi stereo delay with lot of unique features, based on our custom DSP engine. Developed in collaboration with Tim Pechersky aka TeemKaa of Useful Circuits. Tape, digital and ping-pong modes of delay, hold with overdub and delicate delay time and feedback control in combination with CV and trigger control over various parameters make this module not only great effects unit in your modular system, but also - an instrument on it’s own.

Features:

Stereo delay with adjustable delay time
Tape, digital and ping-pong delay modes
Tap and clock synchronization of delay time
Reverse delay mode
Hold mode (samples up to 20” of audio) with Add (overdub) feature
Trigger control over Hold, Add and Reverse
CV control over delay time, dry/wet mix and feedback
Feedback path soft limiting compression
Add to hold soft limiting compression
Adjustable stereo delay spread



~ 310 EUR (excl. VAT)

Just ordered...

Sold my Koma Delay Pedal for this.... I'm hoping.

Frequency range 5Hz..24kHz
Sampling frequency 48kHz, 24bit
Delay time 3..3000 ms
Audio codecs -108 dynamic range, -98dB THD+N


PATCHES:

00:03 - #1 VOWEL

Black Wavetable VCO sequence sent through delay in ping-pong tape mode.

00:53 - #2 LAVENDER FIELDS

Audiobook sent through delay in tape mode with manually set stereo spread.
Stereo spread is set by holding ADD button and turning the TIME knob.

02:31 - #3 BREAKIN

Sample Drum playing a breakbeat sent through delay in tape mode with manually set stereo spread.
Stereo spread is set by holding ADD button and turning the TIME knob.

03:27 - #4 TAP TAP VOWEL

Black Wavetable VCO sent through synced delay in ping-pong tape mode.
Sequencer and delay are clocked from the same clock source. Delay instantly syncs to external clock after two tap (clock) signals therefore adjusting the "time" manuallyy produces interesting effects.

04:18 - #5 DROID BREAKDANCE

Sample Drum playing randomly selected samples through delay in digital mode.
All trigger inputs are randomly triggered and time is modulated with a synced S&H signal from the Octasource.

05:32 - #6 SPACE WAVE

Wavetable VCO sent through delay in ping-pong tape mode.
Delay time and feedback is modulated with phase offset sine wave LFO from the Octasource.

06:06 - #7 WAVE SCANNER

Wavetable VCO send through panning mixer and then the stereo output from the mixer is sent trough the delay in tape mode. Stereo spread of the delay is set manually.

07:23 - #8 THE COWBELL

Cowbell sample played back on Pico Drums sent through delay in ping-pong tape mode.
All trigger inputs are randomly triggered and time is modulated with a synced S&H signal from the Octasource.

08:25 - #9 (( STEREO WAVE ))

Two wavetable VCOs with same bank hard paned to L&R and modulated by Octasource sent through delay in tape mode. Stereo spread of the delay is set manually.

09:58 - #10 ACID DUB

Black Wavetable VCO send through Pico LPG and then through delay in tape mode with manually set stereo spread.

10:52 - #11 DIGITAL NOISE

Black Digital Noise sent through a stereo mixer which is hard panned by the Octasource then sent through delay in digital mode with stereo spread set manually.

11:30 - #12 THE DRONE

Black VCO send through delay in ping-pong tape mode.
Drone is built up by using the HOLD and ADD functions which samples the incoming audio signal.

Just out of curiosity, O1B. Do you make music with all that stuff or is it more of a collectors thing?

It's so interesting because I'd be paralyzed by all that stuff. Then again I have so little space, the one synth I own has to sit on a baby highchair and I can only unpack and mount it once everyone's asleep

I don't Facebook, or dropbox, or youtube (anymore) - so, I don't post my work - but I make music everyday.
I work with one Artist. Maybe, you'll hear some of our work soon.

I'm not ITB much for "making music" vs recording/monitoring. Certain 'Houses' of Hardware/Modular suits me.
Like Erica Synths. I tried Pico DSP and Pico Drums (a year now). Now, the Stereo Echo, and DSP2.

How do you tap tempo delay time - in stereo - out of the box?
How do you create a Dub Step wobble - out of the box?
How do you ... ah.. you get my meaning...

About the space thing. I can dig it. NYC. We do what we can.

God IS Good.

Be well. And, thanks for the nice picture of a high chair.
You may not have Space, but you seem to have plenty of Time. Take Advantage.

I understand., Diminished. I do. It's all Good. I Love Life, and I Live to Learn.

Would love to hear what you think about the Erica delay - looking at Magneto presently, but it's huge (and uses lots of power).

Also interested in both Mimeophon and Morphagene, and as for Erica the Black Hole, BBD and flanger have caught my attention recently, not to mention the Plasma Drive!

You can tell I'm in FX mode with my modular - will need to move out of the small NYC apartment before I have the space for even one more module!!!

I hear ya. I guess most people here don't see that I sell as much as I buy.
I sold all my Moog Pedals - save the MF104 - and the MF101 FILTER. Awesome.
3 Moogerfoogers take the space of a Rackbrute 6U - no exaggeration.
And they sold for a Pretty Penny after they were discontinued.

I get the pedal on Saturday and plan to Palette it immediately. It sounds Perfect. Dark. Voltronic. In the Videos.
Magneto sounds glassy to me. Like a Pitch Shifting Guitar pedal. Not my Thing.

btw, I have the EURO DDL. On it's own... typical. CV'd .. Holey smokes.
I was going to get a 2nd (stereo) - but then I saw/heard the Stereo Delay.

Frequency range: 5-25kHz.
Sampling frequency: 24bit, 48Hkz. The Sweet Spot for Sonics, imo.
https://www.ericasynths.lv/media/Black_Delay_Manual.pdf


The Mimeophon was a no-brainer. When did Make Noise ever Miss?
And, it looks like a lot of collaborative work went into making some nicely balanced echos.
Great Video when you have the time, Selig:



I use Phonogene every other day. I haven't committed to the Morph, but it's a keeper.
The Phonogene is just fun to temp glitch ANY vocal/voice over Music. Damn it's Fun!

I'll definitely report back on the Delay. IF it works, then YES, Erica Synths might be my new Effects House.

Good points, the hands-on experience and the range of possibilities must be nice.

Would love to hear something when the time comes.

Thanks for the nice words!

Thank you Mr. Selig.

I'm glad that through the crazy inter-talk, i didn't get too lost in translation with you. I hope Normen starts to hate me less.

I do Love that Guy. And, I aint scared to say it.

The Make Noise Mimephone looks very cool. Would love to add this to my rack. Thinking of buying a case to replace the TipTop Happy Ending kit. Was bound to happen. Will probably go for a TipTop Mantis. I think that will do me ........ until it fills up! :?

Apologizes Selig.

Balancing a Project due October 31st and life stuff.
I went hog wild on mini euro containers
My OCD doesn't allow me to screw and re-screw. I must do it right the first time. Sad. It never happens, anyway.

Anyways, I get a POD48X today and it frees up space for proper analysis of all three modules (Erica DSP2, Mimeophon, and Erica Stereo Delay)

that - and, I would my plastic washers! non-starter without em.... OCD.

soon,

O1B

Ordered!

Endorphin Milky Way Stereo Effects... Tap... easily accessible... CV'd.

Manual: http://endorphin.es/assets/es_milky_way_190919.pdf
Airways: Hall, Shimmer, Stereo ROOM, Plate, Spring, Ping-Pong, Tape Echo, Chorus..
Darkwaves: Gated, Spring, Ping-Pong, Flanger, Ring-Mod, OverDRIVE, PEAK Compressor, FREEZER/Looper

First Endorphin for me. I always wanted to try them, but $$$.
Now, these new mini modules are right up my Pod60.

It lists as 30mm depth so, i'm hoping. Podx worse case. That "tap" tempo doesn't 'look' to be CV, so it's 'hands-on."
...maybe one of the cabin, cockpit, etc things take over control for.... delay.... tap vs scaled cv... ? that's the question. RTFM time.

I have no idea about the sample or bit rate, either- but - Endorphin.

EDIT: RTFM
• 48 kHz 16 bit digital audio stereo processing
Depth: 30mm (with plugged ribbon cable)
.... nice.

Endorphin's site shows COMING SOON, but Perfect Circuit has them. If this works, these new modules may make a nice "set.'

Synthesis Technology : E520 Hyperion Processor

Kickstarter campaign launches on Nov. 15th and the KS page will activate on Nov. 10th.
Estimated shipping: late May 2020.

https://synthtech.com/eurorack/E520/

Audio conversion uses 48KHz sample rate, 24bit resolution with a line or synth level setting.
Powered by a 480MHz ARM Cortex M7 CPU, the E520 has 64MB on on-board SDRAM for recording up to 6min of stereo audio at 48KHz sample rate. The LCD screen and optical encoder navigation uses the same 'shallow' menu scheme of our E352 and E370 modules, with the addition of 4 'soft keys' for selecting options without having to leave the main page.
