Erica Synths has announced its Black K-Phaser Eurorack module, based on a Classic, Genre Defining FX unit: the Krautrock Phaser.
While retaining the original concept of 8 all-pass filters with photoresistors, Erica Synths has redesigned the filters and modulation circuit and has added several unique features. First, a dip switch allows for selecting the number of filter stages involved in the resonance path, while a resonance attenuverter brings in never-heard-before feedback artifacts. Most importantly, the SPREAD mode detunes the all-pass filters for even more distinct sonic behaviors.
A built-in voltage controlled LFO, with selectable waveforms, further expands the modulation possibilities of the phaser — which can be used as an independent modulation source for your modular system as well.
The Black K-Phaser is our tribute to the German electronic music pioneers that largely shaped the sound of electronic music worldwide.
