The Erica Synths Fusion Ring Modulator v2 is a classic design ring modulator with a Germanium diode ring & vacuum tube, to boost and shape both audio & carrier signals. Germanium diodes enrich the sound by adding extra harmonic content meanwhile vacuum tube adds evilish overdrive to audio and carrier signals. As a result you get one of the most versatile ring modulators around!
- Germanium diode ring
- Audio transformers
- Adjustable tube overdrive on both audio and carrier inputs
- Colour switch to select between brighter and darker sound
A note about power:
Please make sure your PSU has some power headroom before installing Fusion modules – especially multiple units. (ie: you’ll need enough power for the Fusion modules to be able to potentially use DOUBLE their required power during the startup process)
All Fusion modules by default are configured to work with a regular Eurorack PSU. However, due to the fact that cold tube heaters have lower resistance, Fusion modules have significant power consumption peak at startup, when power consumption almost doubles for 1-2 seconds.
This is not a problem with linear PSUs that have power inertia, but you may find that the internal protection feature on switching PSUs temporarily turns off the power supply if there isn’t enough headroom to accommodate this additional power consumption.
Power: 160mA @ +12V / 10mA @ -12V (allow for up to double this consumption during startup)
