The Erica Synths Pico Quant, CV Quantizer is an advanced CV quantizer offering quarter-tone accuracy and a web-based interface for creating your own scales. The Pico Quant offers glide and tolerance knobs for controlling the amount of glide between notes. The Erica Synths Pico Quant offers 8 preset scales including chromatic, diatonic, pentatonic and more. The CV Quantizer also features a clock output so it can synchronise with other modules, and it can also work with an external clock signal.
The Pico Quant quantizes control voltage signals from 0 to +10V in the precision of a half or a quarter tone depending on the selected scale. The 'TOLERANCE' knob can be used to adjust the quantizer tolerance, which controls when the module advances to the next CV stage. The more amount added to the tolerance, the more the quantizer will advance to the next note when the incoming CV is very close to the CV of the given note.
Access Scale Design Interface From A Laptop Or Smartphone
You can access the Pico Quant Scale Design Interface from your laptop or smartphone by going to http://www.ericasynths.LV/quant. This allows you to design your own unique scales with 1/4 semitone accuracy, or you can choose between the 16 ready-made scales. Use the web-based interface to add your created scales to your Pico Quant module.
