SONICWARE Introduces the ELZ_1 Multiple Engine Hardware Synth

"SONICWARE announces the ELZ_1
Reinventing the synthesizer

The ELZ_1 synthesizer can be seen and heard at the 2018 NAMM Show.
Find us at booth 1456 in Hall E.

Become a sound adventurer with the ELZ_1
The ELZ_1 synthesizer engines, which were all developed from the ground up, include the FM SYNTH, the 8BIT WAVE MEMORY SYNTH that allows editing and morphing, the DNA Explorer that can work with waveforms from captured audio, and the SiGRINDER granular synthesizer.

Our goal for the ELZ_1 was to create a synthesizer capable of producing unique sounds, so we developed synthesis engines, including FM, 8-bit wave memory and granular, from the ground up with the SONICWARE mindset. We hope you will make the most of this variety of original synth engines to create new sounds, new performances and new music.

Whether playing live or recording, the ELZ_1 will back up your performances with unique sounds when you need them. Use battery power and the built-in speaker to play the ELZ_1 anywhere.

Expand possibilities and experience new sounds with USB. Connect the ELZ_1 to a PC or Mac to use it as a sound source.

The ELZ_1 synthesizer engines are evolving daily. Enhancements and other functions are planned through firmware updates.

Release date and price are still being finalized.

Who We Are
The SONICWARE mission is to contribute to the creation of new musical compositions and culture by constantly inventing and advancing new instruments. We believe in making distinctive instruments that delight their users and allow them to create previously unknown sounds and expressions."
