thats what i figured. for a cool hunderd less ill gladly install the 6v psu.
thanks!

There is a V2 version of Fusion VCO? Where? If that thing was smaller I'd jump on it.

I'm pretty sure its the same as the V1 but doesn't require the 6V heater tube. I'm not aware of any other differences.

Here's a video I did with it - I ran two mother-32's in to the audio in to see how it would track a detuned signal. Also uses the Fusion VCF v2 and Fusion Mixer v3.

Yep, exactly the same as v1 just will run off a standard power supply alone.

Wondering... both the Eurorack delay and Fusion box seem to have the same pair of BBD chips, yet the box can be pushed to 800ms delay with the 4096-stage one, while the module seems limited to 200ms.

Why won't the clock go slower in the module? Maybe possible with a mod, or perhaps replacing the clock with an external one?

Bumping this exact question. I have a chance to get the Fusion Delay, but I'm kind of put off by the fact it only goes down to 200ms max. That is 4 times less than the fusion box. Wtf? What happens when you feed it an offset?

I think I was able to get it to go longer with a CV offset, but didn't measure if I hit 800ms.

I'm starting to get really annoyed about Fusion Delay Flanger Vintage Ensemble V2. I already returned one unit and received another, because I thought that the first one was faulty. The first one didn't do anything I can hear. Except worked as the most expensive volume fader. This new module seems to be also faulty but in a different way.

I tested the first one only in mono - and it didn't work. Now this second one works only in mono. Withe L&R connected and on 100% wet, the volume is completely silent - for my ears. But there is still some loud sound signal coming - according to the sound level meters. I just can't hear it. Or maybe my speakers can't play it.

When I connect only L or R, I can hear the module working. But when I connect both L & R, all the module does is fade the volume when I turn the Dry/Wet knob towards wet. No modulation at all.

I've checked that the jumpers are correct etc. What could be wrong?

Hey all,

I’m trying to find examples of how the fusion VCO performs with non harmonic content using the audio input. So content like Foley and sound effects. I can find lots of examples using an osc as the onput signal but next to none with less pure harmonics or a complex polyphonic source. I would like to use the module as a subharmonic generator, anyone with the module have experience with what I’m talking about?

Thanks

Got hold of a Fusion Drone system at a good price so been playing about with it and did a few videos of it along with the Techno System





Still getting to know it but feeling happy with it so far. thumbs up

I noticed that from this vco demo that the module is self oscillating. Can this module remain silent until its triggered or does it always produce a drone?

Thanks
NoLegs
It works as a standard oscillator, which produces a continuous tone. You will need to add a VCA or LPG if you want to change the amplitude.
Funch
Thanks, that's very helpful. I guess that explains why the oscs sound continuously when a dummy 1/4" plug is inserted into the gate Jack on my Moog Slim Phatty.

I've just got the Fusion VCO 2 and the oscillator is unstable - very slight fluctuations, but noticeable. Also, the FM attenuator affects the pitch even without FM input. Is this normal? I've reached out to Erica support but thought I'd ask here.

I've checked the power connection, made sure it's on its own supply separate from other modules to no avail. I suspect it's a fault unit.

Anyone that has one of these able to confirm that it's likely faulty?

Haven't noticed too much unstableness, but yes my FM knob does the same and I gotta admit - it's kinda cool for random weirdness. At first I was thinking "what the fuck?" and now I'm still thinking that except that I'm not troubled by it. ha
This thing is a true friggin brute of an oscillator - that's for sure.

Oh yes. This thing is fat for sure, crunchy as hell to boot. Love it apart from the instability.

I've decided to get a replacement to see if it's the unit.

If anyone stumbles on this in the future, it turned out to be a faulty unit. The replacement is stable.

What about the FM knob behavior? Normal?

Yes - confirmed by Erica support as normal.

Double post - ignore.

I had the Fusion VCO v1 and found it a bit lackluster. Huge size, sterile sounding digital VCO, volume drop with the tube sub oscs, too few modulation inputs... Seems like v2 fixes most of these shortcomings, excellent!
NoLegs
Sounds like your v1 wasn’t calibrated correctly. My v1 tube sub osc don’t have any drop. Love both the v1 and v2, quite different feature set and sound.
