Multi-Synth is a new portable digital experimental Synthesizer that offers 7 unique synthesis operation modes with a straightforward designed interface!
The next news fits again to the category: look also at every small developers which are only available on sales platforms like Etsy. Ellitone, an independent manufacturer has released today Multi-Synth, a portable budget-friendly digital exprimental Synthesizer that offers 7 different synthesis types. They range from wavetable, two FM variants as well as three very experimental engines.
A synth engine is available at the same time and can be operated with 4 knobs, 4 keys and a patch bay. The USB powered Multi-Synth doesn’t require synthesis knowledge due of a very easy-to-use interface. A pity is that the signals from the patch bay are not CV but are based on a new simple digital protocol format. Nonetheless an interesting new digital synth for many experimental sounds.
The Ellitone Multi-Synth is a budget-friendly digital synthesizer that can produce a wide variety of sounds thanks to its 7 selectable synthesis/operation modes. Each of these 7 synthesis/operation modes utilize the instruments 4 knobs, 4 keys, and center patch bay in different ways. One of the most important things to know about the Ellitone Multi-Synth is that it requires 0% knowledge of synthesizers or synthesis concepts to instantly pick up, patch, and play. All that is required to master the operation of this electronic musical instrument is experimentation.
This patching area is set up in such a way that ANY connection made from one of the 6 Smaller Output Jacks into the 1 Larger Input Jack will make a change to the current sound that is both immediate and understandable. This simple idea allows for someone without any knowledge of synthesis terminology to be able to play and patch here without becoming confused over concepts like Gates Envelopes Pulse Widths Resonance and so on.
Memorization of this patching matrix and the effect of each patch connection is the key to unlocking the deep synthesis possibilities within. Therefore, knowledge and understanding of the following information is not essential for the operation and enjoyment of this musical instrument.
It is instead, a brief explanation of the individual synthesis modes for those want the jargon!
5 Inputs In The Patch Bay
- mode select
7 Selectable Synthesis/Operation Modes
- Infinite Bounce Matter (bouncing ball style sequencer)
- Chirpp (experimental cosine-grain type synthesis)
- Panic Voice Engine (brutal data distortion type synthesis)
The signals used within the patch bay area of the Ellitone are not CV. They function using a new, simple digital protocol format that works very well. The patch bay inputs and outputs will therefore be compatible with future Ellis Synthesizer components that function within this same signal system. This opens up the possibility of having multiple devices modulating each other creating more complex tones and musical phrasings!
Ellitone Multi-Synth is available now for 62,66€ from Etsy and international shipping is available!
