If you’ve been salivating at all the news concerning the reviving of classic old synths you’ll be very happy to hear that Erica Synths has opened orders for its new Eurorack modular system, which is inspired by the Soviet-era Polivoks synthesizer…
The Polivoks, a duophonic synthesizer, was manufactured between 1982 and 1990 and became famous for its audacious analog sound, a sound which was instrumental in creating the soundtrack to the 2016 Doom remake.
Unlike Behringer who’ve been flooding the world with news of their upcoming cloning projects, Erica Synths has created a system that combines the sound of the synthesizer with a host of additional features, namely CV ins and outs for patching.
There are eight modules that make up the system:DIY MIDI-CV, DIY modulator, DIY Polivoks-inspired VCO, DIY mixer, DIY Polivoks VCF, DIY Polivoks-inspired looping ADSR Envelope generator, DIY Polivoks-inspired VCA and DIY output module.
Pricing and Availability:
The whole system is available from the Erica Synths store in an 84HP case with 20 patch cables for €1,000, or buy the modules individually. Module kits range from €50 to €125. For further information head to the Erica Synths store here.
