CB Electronics has announced a range of EuroRack modules based on established studio products controlled by a single ER-Processor module.

CB Electronics ER-Processor modulesBased on the CB rackmount XPatch line, which has proved popular in recording studios around the world, this new range has been designed with synth users in mind. These new units allow routing of synthesisers’ audio and CV control without manually re-patching and with the convenience of digital control and recall. Audio remains analogue throughout the signal path.

The module comprises three modules. The ER-Processor can talk to up to 16 modules with 127 snapshots; the ER-Patch 16/32: Crosspoint matrix router, offering 16x16 or 32x32 grids for patching audio, CV or gates; and the ER-Gain+Sum, offering eight channel gain control for audio or CV. All in Eurorack format, these modules can be integrated into an existing set-up.

The ER-Processor module provides computer interface via USB Midi and Ethernet, Midi snapshot automation, Serial (5-pin DIN) Midi interface to Midi footswitch or keyboards. A Trigger Section provides eight 3.5mm jacks and switches that may be used as control or record and playback Triggers or Gates via Midi. The processor includes a 128 snapshot store, which holds the parameters for up to 16 modules. All functions may be controlled using the coluor TFT display and encoder or from the XPatch5 Win/Mac program.

The ER-Patch module provides a 16x16 crosspoint matrix. DC Coupled so that audio, CV, or Trigger or Gate signals may be routed. Two ER-Patch Modules with expansion boards can be combined to make a single 32x32 crosspoint matrix.

The eight-channel ER-Gain module is also DC coupled and can control both audio and CV signals. A sum output allows any combination of inputs to be summed after the gain control. Three master groups allow any combination of channels to be controlled.

A new version of XPatch4 software (XPatch5) includes support for the ER range of modules with existing XPatch systems. This includes matrix and path control for up to four ER-Patch 16/32modules, gain control for up to four ER-Gain Modules, and ER Snapshot Control.
