Hot on the heel of the Techno System Erica Synths put together another winning combination of modules. This time they’ve taken from their existing range to create the Liquid Sky Dada Noise System – I wonder what it does?
Liquid Sky Dada Noise System
Can we call it the LSDNS? It’s an experimental sound laboratory for crazy noise, ambient soundscapes and sound design. Created in collaboration with the Liquid Sky artist collective of Berlin and Portugal. Erica Synths say that it’s great for processing field recordings, super for pads, awesome for experimental vocals, fabulous for extraterrestrial atmospheres and mad for generating bonkers noise patterns.
It’s definitely more of a processor than a sound source. The only signal generators in the system are a Pico VCO and a Pico Drums, so that’s a maximum of 3 sounds. The rest is modulation, a lot of modulation, and a whole ton of audio processing. But noise is also taken of in the two Black Code Source modules. They can be stereo digital noise or dual random CV generators offering some interesting channels of variation. The two Fusion modules also play a large role in this sytem. The Ring Modulator and Delay/Flanger. Vintage Ensemble with their glowing tube digs into the warmth and movement of the audio. Oher modules include the Octosource, Joystick, Multi-mode Filter and DSP effects. Lots of interesting things to play with.
For most people I’d see this as being a bit too niché. There are no sequencing or performance aspects, except perhaps for the Joystick, but it would definitely need to occupy a space alongside other gear and other possibilities. Unlike the Techno System that could easily run by itself. So maybe this is a bit more of a curiosity than a workable system for most people. However, who wouldn’t want a case of all that stuff to play with?
The Liquid Sky Dada Noise System is available now for €2900.
