Erica Synth’s long-awaited performance-oriented 4-track Eurorack Black Sequencer is about to be released, I talked to Girts about the module

You may have been wondering where the Erica Synths Black Sequencer that was introduced at Superbooth 19 last year is. The good news, it is in completion, the slightly bad news, you have to wait a little longer more precisely until May or June 2020. According to the developer, they have already produced 300+ Black Sequencers, but are still waiting for the final firmware. Girts from Erica Synths believes that this development will be completed very soon.

Black Sequencer features 4 channels with CV, gate, and modulation outputs, up to 64 step sequences that can be chained in longer ones, independent track time divisions, multiplications, and lengths. That sounds already very interesting to use. Further, it offers CV and Gate recording, built-in quantizer, MIDI in/out, and many other features essential for composing and performing electronic and experimental music.

  1. Hopefully it’s similar technology to the sequencer in DB-01 and we can get that shuffle in a firmware update.
