Wide Blue Sound has released Elysium, which they describe as an inspiring two-layer synth for creating music infused with tonal rhythms, movement and unrivaled playability.
A spokesperson told us, "With an entirely new way to create striking percussive pulses, beautiful organic arps, evolving pads, and hybrid instruments, Elysium simply cannot be replicated by any other synth on the market. Some of the biggest synths end up being preset synths, with features built for the patch designers instead of the users. Elysium is different. With dozens of macro knobs, generators and fun ways to create movement, even your most simple patches sound more lively in Elysium than they would anywhere else. Elysium's groundbreaking, critically-acclaimed UI was designed to give you the most power and flexibility possible with the least amount of resistance."
Pricing and Availability:
$199. Buyers will receive a serial number to redeem on Native Instrument's downloader, Native Access, which will handle installation and also ensure that Elysium is always up-to-date.
