Sounds really good

27.02.2015
I don't know if "warm, smooth and creamy" are cliches, but that's what the Erebus sounds like. Even the raw oscillator sound is very thick to my ears. This synth excels in long and smooth sounds, and the echo module is really nice. You can also modulate the length of the echo. I guess it also has a vintage analog vibe to it.

And maybe the best part of this synth: It's paraphonic when played through midi or 2 cv sources! The oscillators sound so thick by themselves that the paraphonic sound is really good. Also the mod wheel is routed to cv output, so it can be used with any of the inputs. That's very useful when sequencing and automating (and of course playing).

There was a note inside the manual, that this is the Erebus 1.02 model and there is now a dip switch inside, which can be used to bypass the AMP AR envelope, and use cv instead to directly control the AMP from the RES input. That's a great addition, since modulating the filter resonance isn't really that useful.

They call the echo module "Lo-Fi echo" in the manual, which is kinda true. It's pretty clean and nice with I'd guess something like 300-400 ms delays. But it's signal path is all analog, and probably because of that it produces a lot of noise with longer delay times. But it's nice and really useful to have anyway, with shorter echos it sounds great.

Also if you have any problems the Dreadbox customer support is really helpful. I had some initial problems with the unit, it didn't seem to work properly. I emailed them and they answered almost immediately. The two PCB boards had become detached during transport (rough handling), so I just had to open it and push them back together.

Great sounding synth that's fun to play

John3816, 28.07.2016
The Erebus is a great sounding synth that incorporates a patch panel to add some modular-style possibilities to sound creation and performance.

The design of the synth is pretty comprehensive for such a small and relatively low-cost instrument: it has two oscillators, each of which has a choice of two waveforms, and each with independent glide; two envelopes; a very wide-range LFO; a fun, low-fi delay; and a very musical 12db/oct low-pass filter.

It has a MIDI input, so you can control it even if you don't have any other analogue, control-voltage equipment.

The patch panel is where this instrument really shines. It allows you to create fairly complex sounds, evolving patches, and to interface to modular gear, like Eurorack. This opens up extra possibilities, and helps make up for any features that the Erebus lacks - you can always get more features in modules, and patch them in.

The synth sounds great, and really cuts through a mix. You might actually have to tame it slightly to make it sit well!

Note that the glide (the voltage slew) is not after the v/oct CV input - if you use CV to control the Erebus, the glide controls do not affect the notes played.

The first unit I received has a fault and Dreadbox were helpful and offer to repair it. But Thomann actually replaced the unit as quickly as new stock allowed. So I was happy with the outcome. Very happy with this purchase.
