Turns out our presenter was staying in the hotel room next to ours, and after a chance meet in the corridor, we came by to check out the new SonicWare ELZ_1.

Its a compact synth instrument, with a passing resemblance to the Teenage Engineering OP-1. though without the sequencing and recording features.

  • 8BIT WAVE MEMORY SYNTH (waveform editing and morphing with FM mode)
  • DNA EXPLORER (extract and generate waveforms from audio)
  • SiGRINDER (granular synthesizer engine)
  • STANDARD OSC (sign, square, triangle and saw waves)
  • LOW-BIT OSC (sign, square, triangle and saw waves)
