Erica Bassline Tuning Issue

Hi All

I've had the Erica Bassline module for some time now, but due to time and needing to use fixed architecture stuff for immediate results, I've not touched it in some time.

I've just started using modular again, and I immediately started with the Erica Bassline module.

However, I'm finding it simply will not track over anything more than a few semitones.

It's doing my effing head in, and I've tried the calibration routine etc. Just sounds awful and will not stay in tune.

Has anyone else had this experience, or has anyone used them and found similar issues? I'm considering burning my modular rig, as after completing an album using purely synths, I just can't see all this faffing being worth it.

Any help much appreciated.

Regards

Maybe try calibration again? I know scaling is something I always have to fight with during calibration. Part of what got me into sampling the modular was tuning issues like this.

It's a prebuilt module so I never calibrated it.

I downloaded the BOM and tried to follow what they said in that, but to no avail.

I've seen one other mention of this issue MW and have also emailed Erica support.

It's a real pisser. I love the sound but tuning is doing my nut in.

With the rest of my eurorack gear, slight slop is quite appealing. This is waaaaay out.

Try a calibration and see what happens. Analog circuits are sensitive to some silly things, so maybe its tracking just got a little wacky.

I'll give it a try. Thanks, Derp.

Cheers, guys.

I sent it back. It was actually a faulty unit.
