Dreadbox

Description

This Erebus 2-voice paraphonic analog synthesizer reissue from Dreadbox is a faithful recreation of the original—with some added modern features, like a hard sync function and a new ADSR envelope and AR amp envelope. It can be used either as a standalone unit or as a 42HP-sized Eurorack module, and features two VCOs with the ability to work paraphonically, and two waveforms per VCO. It also has separate glide controls for each VCO, making it easy to play and manipulate its sonic character. With USB power, it offers convenient portability and energy efficiency.
