The first release in the new SYNSET family is a FM Synthesizer with dedicated FM drum channel, sequencer and 2 arpeggiators.

This week the SuperBooth stats on Thursday and many manufacturers will present their new products there. FingerSonic announced his latest news already now: SYNSET FM is a new FM Synthesizer that features 6 operators, 8 voice of polyphony, 3 dedicated FM drum channels, a sequencer as well as 2 arpeggiators. The sounds are refined by two effect slots that range from chorus, delay, distortion to a resonant lowpass filter.

With the Digitone, Elektron has recently made FM synthesis more attractive to many musicians in the year 2018. I’m curious to see how this new synthesizer differs and who sounds better. Stay tuned for a first look video from Superbooth 2018.

FM Synthesizer With 6 Operators & 8 Voices Of Polyphony

SYNSET FM is a complete 6 operators FM synthesizer with the addition of 3 dedicated FM drums channels, a sequencer, 2 arpeggiators and an effect section. The programming of the voices is very user friendly, thanks to the FaderOS and the 5 encoders. 2 more controls are provided to control your prefered effect in realtime. No limit to experiment with FM synthesis and create your own amazing sounds.

The SYNSET FM is designed to be very intuitive and provides everything you need for easy and quick music creation. You will be able to program great patterns and build a complete track without the need of a computer or other instruments. All this is controlled by a user friendly 16-step sequencer.
