Erica Synths has announced a new collaboration with fellow Latvian company, Gamechanger Audio (www.gamechangeraudio.com), resulting in a new Erica Synths eurorack module:: Plasma Drive. Gamechanger Audio, which is well known for their Plasma Pedal, is committed to exploring the uncharted territories of music electronics and creating devices that provide real value — while stretching the imagination of both musicians and engineers. With their Plasma Pedal they managed to combine Tesla coil with plenty of Rock and Roll. The result is one of the worlds 'heaviest sounds' with plenty of unique features and the potential to become the new standard of distortion.

Similar to Plasma Pedal, Erica Synths' Plasma Drive provides you with a new and previously unexplored method of achieving signal clipping in 16HP. Instead of using LED circuits, transistors or vacuum tubes to produce overdrive, the Plasma Drive boosts audio signal to 3000V and transforms it into a series of continuous high-voltage discharges in a xenon-filled tube. In essence – you are playing a lightning bolt of electricity, and the electrical discharges produced by your instrument are instantly converted back into an analogue audio signal — producing a quick, responsive, and extremely heavy distortion with tons of unique character.

The eurorack module Plasma Drive brings sounds of the Plasma Pedal to the next level. As per eurorack standards, Erica Synths has added CV control over distortion level and dry/wet mix, as well as octave up and 1 and 2 octaves down tracking oscillators that add even more harmonics to the original signal. Tracking oscillators can be switched on/off manually or via trigger signals. The Plasma Drive module is powered via conventional eurorack PSU ribbon cable and the power consumption is around 150mA.

FEATURES:

  • Unique distortion flavor
  • CV control over distortion and dry/wet mix
  • Assignable equalizer (pre- and post effect)
  • 1 octave up & 1 and 2 octaved down tracking oscillators

Price (VAT excl.) 310€, Release date 20th of February 2019

PLASMA DRIVE MODULE WILL BE EXHIBITED @ NAMM SHOW 2019 WITH GAMECHANGER AUDIO, BOOTH 3347
