Erica Synths is a modular synthesizer company shifting its traditional DIY Series Modules over to affordable entry-level Educational Kits to help teach the fundamentals of electronics. The kits are intended to be used as teaching aids to promote audio synthesis and sonic discovery for both in-class and independent learning.
Founded in 2014 by Girts Ozolinš, Erica Synths is a company known for producing boutique Eurorack modules and systems that have stayed true to their roots in the modular industry's DIY space.
Its educational kits are a new focus for the brand. It will strip back some functions to make the design easier to grasp for beginners, while also maintaining their suitability for more experienced users.
In preparation for its new line of Educational Kits, current production of its DIY Series will discontinue -- with the company set to end support in 2020. What remains of the DIY stock can be purchased online through Erica Synths' website.
