Erica Synths has announced a new Eurorack module based on a classic, genre defining FX unit, the Krautrock Phaser.

The Black K-Phaser is Erica Synths’ tribute to the German electronic music pioneers that largely shaped the sound of electronic music worldwide.

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.

Black K-Phaser features

  • 8 all-pass filters with photo-resistor control.
  • Classic and Spread (filter detune) mode.
  • Resonance attenuverter.
  • Selectable resonance path.
  • Built in VC LFO with a dedicated output.
  • Wet output.

The Black K-Phaser is priced 190 EUR (excl. VAT) / $229 USD.
