With this glut of drum synths, I bet the prices on many will drop in a few years. So maybe check back then :slight_smile:

That being said, looks nice, especially with the integrated sequencer. Looks like the 5th “section” in the top right is for some sort of mastering? It seems to have 4 voices + sequencers.

interesting…

observations:

  • I see “FX depth” and “level” on each of the four channel’s column-pairs starting at the left (but not the fifth column pair)
  • I also see a switch with arrow directions on each channel column pair; this is presumably to assign something to the joystick
  • shuffle knob and play/stop/tap/reset/fill on the left
  • not sure what the four knobs next to each set of 16 buttons would be for… subdivisions or sequence length?
  • right-hand buttons look to say save, load and shift maybe?
  • mini joystick between those buttons and the big joystick? or something…
  • the fifth channel pair (on the far right) looks to have “mod depth” at the bottom left, so I’m assuming this is a master/effects channel
  • case looks to be the same as the Syntrx. even down to the screw spacing on the bottom, but this has darker wood sides; so it should be rack-mountable (like the Syntrx), which is good given it’s pretty big for a drum machine

so… kind of like an 01/IV with a built in sequencer and master effects/level section…?

also remember Erica are from Latvia: “Pērkons, (Latvian: “Thunderer”) Lithuanian Perkūnas, Old Prussian Perkunis, sky deity of Baltic religion , renowned as the guardian of law and order and as a fertility god. … Pērkons also directs his thunderbolts against evil spirits and unjust men and even disciplines the gods.”

Love the styling! Looks like a cold war era Russian control panel.

And that joystick…

yeah reminds me of this in a way; at least with the rows of similar buttons… this is the original DRM drum machine from Vermona, when they were an East German company.

It looks like a collab between Erica Synths and Sequentix (Cirklon).
