This is not a set it and forget it oscillator. It’s an oscillator that demands to be tweaked, modulated and explored. It’s an oscillator that’s proudly analog and eschews all shortcuts. As such, it’s an oscillator that rewards you with sounds as boundless as your creativity.
Rubicon2 is a flexible, feature-rich, completely analog oscillator ready to scream or sing to meet the demands of your patch and the desires of your imagination.
It features nine simultaneously available waveshape outputs; two sub-oscillators; three variations of a sine wave; a new Tri-State pulse circuit; exponential Frequency Modulation (FM); linear FM; hard and soft (flip) sync; pulse width modulation; CV control of FM index; a new foldable Warp circuit; and the ability to perform perfectly-symmetrical Thru-zero FM with no change in pitch or tracking accuracy.
Rubicon2 is the second generation of the classic Rubicon triangle core analog VCO, designed in collaboration with David G. Dixon.
Nine simultaneous waveform outputs (3 Sine types, Triangle, Saw, Double Saw, Zig-Zag, Pulse, Tri-State Pulse, Sub, and Warp).
Quick, accurate tuning via an 8-Octave switch, Pitch knob, LFO/VCO range switch, and front panel trimmer.
Lock switch toggles symmetrical Thru-Zero Linear FM with stable pitch tracking.
Wavefolding Warp Circuit blends a signal with the unique Tri-State Pulse wave.
Use Fusion Mixer as two independent 3-input mixers (also for stereo signal mixing) or 6-input mixer. Special feature of the Fusion Mixer – great tube overdrive effects when level knobs are set to 3 o’clock and above. When used with drum machines, it even emulates side chain compressors. When used to mix signals from VCOs Fusion Mixer works as wave shaper, especially, if pulse width modulated pulse signals is used in one of inputs.
All Fusion modules by default are configured to work with regular eurorack PSU.
6 audio inputs
Two independent 3-input mixer
Sum of all 6-inputs
Soft tube overdrive
Configurable power supply – standard Eurorack +-12V connection OR Eurorack +-12V plus Erica Synths Tube heater PSU
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.
