Mixing may be more of a utilitarian function in a modular synthesizer – but that doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be dull and boring,” Erica Synths said.

“Example: This super-simple three-channel mixer with built-in diode distortion will make your patches deliciously rough.”

The Mixer is the sixth of nine kits to be released with future releases featuring a wave folder, a noise/S&H module and an output stereo mixer with headphone amplifier.

Users will have four to six weeks between module releases to give them a chance to build each of them, as the intention is “to teach people with little or no prior experience how to design circuits of analog synthesizer from scratch”.

Erica Synths said “what you’ll find in the box isn’t just meant to be soldered together and then disappear into your rack”.

“Instead, we want to walk you through the circuit design process step-by-step, explaining each choice we made and its impact on the finished module,” they said.

Each kit will also include a build manual, covering both the fundamentals of synthesis and how each module’s electronics work.

Additionally, an affordable eurorack case with a DIY power supply will also be available.

“Although these kits are easy to build, we didn’t compromise on design and functionality,” they said.
