The successor to the widely acclaimed Elmyra, Elmyra 2 is a 4-voice digital/analog hybrid drone synthesizer and platform for microtonal sonic exploration, capable of creating anything from lush ambient soundscapes to gritty droning textures and shrieking noises, available as a 42 HP Eurorack module or semi-modular desktop synth. With 31 modulation targets, 4 polymetric sequencers, delay, additional per-voice effects, a choice of various filters, as well as onboard LFOs and utilities, it is essentially a purpose-built small modular system in itself. A set of preset cards (included) or electronic components like capacitors or diodes can be plugged into the front panel in order to change the sound character.

Feature overview:

4 independent voices activated by touch or CV
wavetable-based complex oscillator engine, up to 12 oscillators in total, 1V/octave compatible
chromatic mode makes chords and harmonic sounds possible, microtonal scales supported
41 patch points
31 modulation targets
touchpads with analog envelopes that can be used as modulation sources
resonant filter switchable between:
boomy and aggressive multimode 2-pole state variable filter (low-pass, band-pass, high-pass)
creamy 4-pole low-pass ladder filter
delay with unhealthy amounts of feedback
lo-fi reverb
analog OUCH circuit: a unique combination of destructive distortion, waveshaping and filtering
sonic character can be customised by using special preset cards (set of 4 included) or components like diodes that can be plugged into the front panel
preset cards can be used with other Neutral Labs modules
external audio can be processed via audio input
9 per-voice modulations and effects:
unison detune
dual sub-oscillators
sample rate reduction
high-pass filter
low-pass filter
2 LFOs: 1 sine, 1 complex morphable
4 sequencers with arbitrary step length per voice (up to 128), allows polymetric structures
delay time and LFOs can be clock-synced or unsynced (tap tempo is also possible)
dual attenuator/buffered multiple/voltage generator
CV summing circuit
case made of plant-based bioplastic and native German oak wood
boutique synth handmade in Germany
