DivKid's Month Of Modular Issue #13 October 2016 - Page 12

INTERVIEW

functionally. And I would never ever again launch 16 modules simultaneously! :D Just

imagine all production routines with 16 modules! Production files, front panels, designs, manuals, packaging, logistics!

But I’m really happy about the result! I can proudly say that we have developed the world’s smallest self-containing (no external interfaces needed) eurorack modular system that really works! You can play serious one-hour gig only on 42HP system.

- Will we see more PICO modules soon? And do you think there's anything you can't fit in 3HP?

Yes, the second run of Pico modules is arriving from the factory these days, and then our Pico series will be complete. We’ll launch pre-assembled Pico System mid-November. We’ll have 6 more Pico modules: Pico DSP (8 effects stereo FX processor), Pico STRINGS (string sounds VCO), Pico Logic (2x8 logic algorithms), Pico SEQS (voltage controlled

4-channel sequential switch), ALOGIC (“analogue logic” signal processor – takes two

incoming signals and derives sum, difference of them, as well as max and min curves) and MASK (advanced S&H module, based on Mask Value principles).

The only limitation for 3HP is physical space of the faceplate. J It would be hard to imagine 8 channel performance mixer in 3HP!

- Finally, what's next for Erica Synths? Anything you can tell us about?

As Pico series are temporarily complete, we shift our focus back to Graphic modules, and I hope to have Graphic VCO ready before Christmas! Also we have Fusion VCF and VCA on the way. And couple of very distinct VCFs. To date we have only Polivoks VCF in our line, therefore we want to fill that gap.

To end on I'd like to say a huge thanks to Girts for all his support of my work and for taking the time to answer my questions.
