Based on Gamechanger Audio's Plasma pedal, this collaborative effort with Erica Synths brings high-voltage Xenon tube distoriton into the Eurorack synthesizer format. The Plasma Drive extends Erica's Fusion series into new territory: territory where sound is translated into high-voltage discharges in a Xenon tube, not unlike the sound of a Tesla coil with a particularly musical ear.
Erica's Plasma Drive provides a two-band EQ much like the original pedal, but adds octave and suboctave tracking oscillators for producing even thicker sounds. CV inputs for voltage and wet/dry mix as well as trigger inputs for activating/deactivating the tracking oscillators make for an uncommonly "playable" distortion, with a sound all its own.
Plasma Drive Features
Xenon tube distortion developed in conjunction with Gamechanger Audio
Dedicated control and CV input for Voltage level
Built-in EQ for tone shaping
Octave up and Suboctave tracking oscillators for even thicker sounds
Octave and suboctave oscillators can be activated and deactivated via external triggers
Erica Synths Plasma Drive High Voltage Xenon Tube Distortion In Eurorack
Erica Synths Plasma Drive module brings the high voltage xenon tube distortion developed by Gamechanger Audio into the eurorack format. This eurorack version has octave and sub octave generators built in as well as a two band EQ and voltage controls.
The first part of this video the entire mix of Mutable Instruments Plaits and Endorphin.es Blck_Noir are run through the Plasma Drive. In the second part the Erica Synths Bassline is run through Plasma Drive both used as a bassline and drone synth.
