Some nifty features on this one - rather pleasant on the eye too.

Ive only said it twice this week so...its a great synth. It has a lovely thick vintage vibe to it. Id have liked the new features but I bought it for its tone above all.

Wow....glad I didn't buy the Erebus yet. How is this guy doing this? He’s making some of the most undeniably analog synthesizers around, semi-modular no less, with MIDI and FX, and charging peanuts for them.

This looks like his best UI yet. Somebody...Roland, Korg, Yamaha.....they are going to hire this guy and give him a lot of money.

From the video, I felt the Erebus 3 sounds different from the ERebus V2.

Well an extra oscillator will do that for you

This is a fantastic upgrade.

It's also good to see that the saturation of the market with monosynths is resulting in quality products at a lot more reasonable prices.

And as a recent owner of the Erebus, I also don't see why anyone would go for the still-available V.2 over this one; collecting purposes or otherwise.

as always with Dreadbox, a rich, thick fundamental sound and then added solid capacity for mayhem - love that third oscillator is like an extra player, for whatever you want - am, fm, filter fm, third vco thickening etc. and love the sound of ring modulator section too. and layout is so beautiful and inviting.


with so much i/o it its much more flexible, and have to admit it became much more interesting to me than previous versions, bcs of increased capability to talk nice with modular gear.


think it will be a gateway drug to modular black hole for many.

It sounds pretty great!


(That's not a ring modulator, Tom It's actually more similar to Rotors from Solaris, from what Yannis explained in that video.)

This does sound quite a bit different from the original Erebus. Which I’m ok with because I really didn’t want to part with my v2 to get this one. Now I can rationalize having both. What a time to be alive.

that's nice... I will only add a selected mini list of hardware synths to my Eurorack and this will probably be one of them

Hmmm. Better specified with many off the original features yet doesn't sound like the Erebus V2.

I've got a lot of synths, but being born in the seventies and brought up on that era's music I have to say the Erebus sounds like the seventies synths I grew up with.

It's a fantastic sounding synth. I've got V2.

I wish it had sync (unless I’m missing it)

From the video, he’s using different ICs for the oscillators and filter. I wonder if it’s the same envelope. Would be a really nice complement to the original Erebus if it had a little bit snappier envelope.

Honestly, to me this is a very different synth than the Erebus v1 and 2. I own v1 and love it, the tone is all kinds of cream and bliss

It's not just the third oscillator, but the subtle changes such as the 3 ring mod and extra cv points. It's looking great

My understanding is the 'usual' Dreadbox oscillator is one built discretely, with zero IC's involved.....which includes the original Erebus...

Peanuts..??

the Erebus goes for around $800 here in Australia.

I held in there and was about to give up and then after about 8 minutes in he starts some stuff I really liked...

So pleased to hear that sound...

The new Erebus 3 is tempting!

First oscillator is switchable between saw and square waves. Second oscillator is saw and triangle. Seems like third oscillator is continuously variable. Perhaps it’s the same design as the Abyss?
