Erica Synths Pico Modulator

Details
The Erica Synths Pico Modulator is a handy combination of an envelope generator and a VCA in a single module. It provides straight-forward and sample controls, perfect for live performance and fast sound generation. The Pico Modulator is switchable between AD or ASR modes, and is perfect for rapidly creating envelopes for percussive sounds. You can also choose between linear or logarithmic envelope shapes. A unique aspect of the Pico Modulator is its built-in Loop mode when nothing is patched into the Gate input. This is perfect for creating a looped envelope without any timing or gate triggers, with control being achieved using the Attack and Release control knobs. The Pico Modulator is a compact and flexible module, and allows you to create a great performance without the complicated patching of separate VCAs.

Ultra-Compact Pico Series

Erica Synths have successfully managed to create a high-performance series of modules in an ultra-compact and affordable format. At only 3HP in width, the Pico Modulator provides the same sound quality and versatility that you would typically need a collection of rather expensive modules to generate. Designed for Eurorack modular systems, the Erica Synths Pico module series is a huge leap in compact, powerful, and innovative modular synthesis.

Switchable AD/ASR Envelope Modes

The Erica Synths Pico Modulator can be switched between AD and ASR envelope modes with ease. A toggle switch is located next to the LIN/LOG switch, labelled GATE/TRIG. When toggled to Trig mode, the module will ignore the gate length, and will trigger the envelope in AD mode on the rising edge of the incoming signal. When set to Gate mode, the module will trigger the envelope based on the length of the Gate signal.

In-Built VCA

The Pico Modulator features an in-built VCA with dedicated VCA input and output. Simply patch the audio signal you wish to modulate into the VCA IN jack, and you are set. This input is AC coupled to avoid clipping.

Loop Mode

With nothing patched into the GATE IN jack, the Pico Modulator will activate its Loop mode. Loop mode has a maximum length of 8 seconds, as opposed to the regular envelope mode which provides 4 seconds. It is perfect for creating a looped envelope without any timing triggers or gates, with timing controlled via the Attack and Release control knobs.

Controls & I/Os

  • ATTACK: Control knob for setting the attack time
  • RELEASE: Control knob for setting the decay/release time
  • LIN/LOG Switch: Switch between linear or logarithmic envelopes
  • GATE/TRIG Switch: Switch between triggered (AD) or gates (ASR) modes. In trig mode, the module ignores gate length and triggers the envelope in AD mode on the rising edge of incoming signal
  • GATE Indication LED: Indicates the incoming Gate signal
  • GATE Input: Patch input for your Gate signal to trigger the envelope. When no cable is patched here, the module automatically advances to looping mode
  • ENVELOPE OUT Indication LED: Visual feedback on the output signal of the envelope
  • ENV OUT: Output for the envelope
  • VCA IN: Input for patching in an audio signal that you wish to module. The input is AC coupled to avoid clipping
  • VCA OUT: Output for the VCA
