Ellitone E[64] Synthesizer

Robin Rimbaud-Scanner

"I love portable technology and last week this charming little handheld synthesiser arrived. The Ellitone E[64] Synthesizer and Sequencer System is made by the same company who built the Ellitone Farm Detective Ultrarollz and Ellitone Multi-Synth that I already own. These are budget priced synths but the price isn’t reflected in the sound and ability, and as such they are wonderfully inspiring instruments. What you hear are three live layers mixed on top of one another. No other effects, no other instruments, just the Ellitone E[64]. All played live with no sync.

Here's what the creator wrote about this synth:
“The initial idea for this musical instrument was to somehow find a way to break away from the struggle of composing musical sequences by hand. Practically every musical sequencing device available today provides the user with a blank canvas for which to compose upon. I thought it would be cool if I could instead be working with a 'musical composition engine' - this engine would instantly generate complex patterns of notes, chords, and rhythms using a built-in knowledge of musical theory. “

And that’s this machine does. Even a novice can pick it up and have the immediate reward of performing with it. It has no memory either and every time you switch it back on it begins somewhere else, so it’s very much about the moment itself. And I love that about it!"
