Erica Synths Graphic VCO allows you to draw your own waveforms, arrange them in wavetables and wavetable banks, morph between two selected waves and alter the resulting wave in advanced ways (FXes) – apply FM, phase distortion, ring modulation, wavefold/wavewrap, bitcrush.
Waves, wavetables, FXes and other settings can be saved and recalled from the memory instantly. The module has two outputs – the main output and the output with configurable suboscillator.
NB! To have the module functionality up to date, we recommend you to check the Erica Synths home page or our social media from time to timefor announcements about firmware updates for the Graphic VCO. You can update the firmware of the module via miniUSB cable. More detailed instructions of the firmware update can be found in the User Manual.

The sound is clean, modern, punchy and detailed thanks to the unit running at 96kHz — quite different to some low bit-rate wavetable oscillators on the market. Wavetable interpolation is smooth as butter and with the built-in effects you can dirty things up in many different ways. The module scores highly on the sound front. The Graphic VCO is a very capable oscillator module with excellent sound quality and a lot of features that could make it the right choice, especially if live performance is your thing. - Sound On Sound
The bottom line is that the Graphic VCO is a joy to use. It’s a module that’s unashamedly digital, yet unmistakably eurorack. I think Erica showed a great deal of careful judgement and restraint in the design of this module. It would have been easy to have made it bloated and cumbersome trying to cram as many features as possible into it, but they kept it fairly simple which keeps the module fun and immediate in use. It’s capable of a huge tonal palette ranging from beautiful to brutal that is bound to fit in with a lot of different styles and systems. - Ask Audio
The ability to draw and then effortlessly jump between different custom digital waveforms in this way feels unique on the Eurorack stage, and allows for a wide range of tones and transitions between them. - Orb Mag
One of the greatest music producer of our times - Randall Dunn recently wrote a little piece about sounds he love. He says: “We were both pretty hungry in Michigan in the 80's looking for new sounds and music. [..] Mostly played on Synclavier and a Roland JD 800 I began a strange love affair with late era digital synths like those and the PPG wave and why sometimes I still prefer the brutality of a wavetable to a Minimoog.”
Of course, everybody loves sound of an analogue synth. It is a non-questionable core value of huge and influential tradition started in the second part of 20th century. However, if you are bored just for a minute to take part in that old collective ritual of millions, if you feel that rebel growing inside of you, if you are hungry to discover your own path, your own signature sound, if you really would love to jump into tomorrow now…, then Graphic VCO is your necessary ally. Draw your own waveforms. Sculpt your own voice. Master your own musical gesture. And you may find yourself in a new beautiful world. Indeed.
As Leonardo once said: “If I had a Graphic VCO I would have never wasted so much time with those noiseless paintings…”

Erica Synths team of visionaries, engineers and musicians have been working hard to bring you modules and instruments that will set your modular system apart from mass in terms of how it sounds, looks and functions. Check them out and find what you are missing!
Erica Black series are high-end modules with unique functionality. Only the highest quality components are used and all inputs and outputs are protected against undesired overvoltage. When designing the Black Series, we put design and usability first. Big knobs are assigned to functions that make difference in sound. The Erica Black series are a range of modules that together make an entire synthesizer.
Erica Synths Fusion series modules are designed combining vacuum tubes and semiconductors therefore they bring warm, powerful sound and crazy overdrive possibilities of vacuum tubes into your modular system. Erica Fusion series consist of whole range of modules used in sound generation and shaping circuit – Suboscillator, Mixer, Ringmodulator, VCF, VCA and Analogue Delay/Chorus.
With Pico Series we challenged ourselves – can we make ANY superior functionality synth module 3HP wide and affordable? Yes, we can!
DIY Polivoks-inspired system is skiff friendly and adapted for modular functionality great sounding 84HP two-VCO modular-system with 53 patch points that go well beyond classical monosynths. Key modules are Polivoks-inspired, but this is not just a Polivoks clone. We have introduced numerous innovative solutions in each module to make it more versatile and to expand the functionality of the entire system.
Erica Synths Graphic series challenges the traditional way how modular synths are operated – using encoders you can literary draw audio waves, advanced envelopes and filter curves on the LCD screen and listen to the result straight away. All settings can be saved in the internal memory and instantly recalled during live performances or next morning after the night, you spent with designing that unique patch. All Graphic Series modules firmware is upgradable via USB cable, and we have designed a web interface to perform upgrades.
These are great, function rich modules to control your modular system, interface it with other musical instruments to release its full potential.
Since Pico Drums is one of bestsellers in Erica Synths range, we decided to inflate it to the Drum System – a set of 15 modules to put together one of the most advanced techno/dnb/industrial music performance system.
