ELZ_1 play will now also add the Shimmer Reverb!

video upload by SONICWARE


About 50 more units and Shimmer reverb

Thankfully, we have received requests from many people to increase production.

We are expecting a certain number of units, so we have decided to produce an additional 50 units for December shipment. If you are interested, please reserve your 'ELZ_1 play' as soon as possible.

Also, as a result of our recent survey, many of you polled for the Shimmer Reverb, but there were slightly more poll for the ZTRINGS, so we have decided to include the ZTRINGS.

However, thanks to your support, we will be able to increase production, and since many of you polled for the Shimmer Reverb, we have decided to include a shimmer reverb as well, as a token of our appreciation.

Thank you for your continued support.

Abyss by Dawesome: A deep dive and tutorial

video upload by CatSynth TV

"We take a deep dive into the Abyss, a new instrument by Dawesome and released by Tracktion. Abyss is a idiosyncratic instrument centering around the Gradient, an oscillator that allows you to morph between several timbres selected from a large internal library. It also has support for FM synthesis, a resonant filter, and an effects section tuned to be part of the synthesis architecture.

"Abyss is a visual synthesizer with character and a bit of fairy dust. It brings to you dark, vibrating drones, vivid cinematic pads and rich evolving textures. With Abyss you find instant inspiration for your music and sound design projects. The innovative synthesis engine of Abyss represents timbres with color, giving you unprecedented intuitive access - to design your own signature sound with ease. And with the powerful modulation system it is easier than ever to make any patch nuanced and expressive"

"Fully serviced and recapped by our in-house technician. Originally designed for educational and home use so it is light and portable and even has a built-in amplifier and speaker. It’s a genuine Moog synth that is equally as obscure as useful these days. And its rather simple looking front-panel layout hides the uniquely flexible, powerful and great sounding little beast it truly is!

Roland SH101-SH32 loop jam, analogue vs digital synthesisers in the forest. A hedgehop video remix

video upload by drone-in-the-woods

"Dragged out the SH32 again, this time I looped it to make use of different sounds and it's drum samples. Got a bit stuck in a groove in the windy hollow and after a failed attempt at recording a live overdub, I decided to layer the drums and bass to beef up the sound a bit.
The video overdub is from the Draca Caves in Mallorca 17th July 2023.

The Rare Roland SH-7 (1978)

video upload by Alex Ball

"Roland's first ever synth was the SH-1000 and they've added around 20 to that line since then, including the SH-4d that came out just a few months ago.

I've played most of them and one always stood out as my favourite having borrowed one some years ago. Unfortunately they're very rare and hard to find, but after a lucky encounter I managed to finally get one.
