Bask in the gløry øf the days øf yøre…when mødems and dial-up tønes reigned supreme. That gød awful søund emitted as yøu tried with all øf yøur might tø ping a cømmunicatiøn acrøss the gløbe…that søund…is precisely what we have harnessed and packaged intø a percussiøn vøice før the mødern day cyber junkie.
DIAL-UP! The øscillatør cøre has a single knøb (lil’ cømputer) which scrambles the glitch algørithm. Bipølar CV cøntrøl øver this parameter can be accessed by the CV input (lil’ phøne). The øscillatør gøes intø an ønbøard transistør VCA with built in decay enveløpe. Decay times can be changed with the “tail” knøb as well as the three pøsitiøn range switch which selects the max decay range frøm løw, medium, tø high. The BANG! input døes nøt ønly accept triggers, it can alsø be used as an enveløpe følløwer.
It’s difficult tø say what exactly the knøb and CV dø, as this parameter is respønsible før cøntrølling several different pieces øf the cøde at ønce. It’s a sørt øf hybrid between the øverall pitch and the amøunt in which the mødule glitches øut.

Erica Synths DIY Modulator is 35mm deep, skiff friendly, has solid mechanical construction and doesn’t require wiring.
The Modulator essentially is LFO with simultaneous triangle and square wave outputs, clockable S&H with external CV input and noise source. A kit comes with two versions of noise generator – simple, transistor-based and more complex Zener diode-based one. Latest provides perfect, full spectrum white noise.
LFO with triangle and pulse wave outputs
Choice of transistor-based or Zener diode-based noise generator for massive, full spectrum white noise
The beating heart(s) of your rack, the analog oscillator. If the Dixie2‘s six waveform outputs don’t offer enough shapes for you, the PWM, sync, and FM inputs have you covered. Unique to the Dixie2+ is PWM control, exponential FM, and an Octave switch for quick asnd precise musical tuning. Great in pairs, two hearts are better than one.
