Neutral Labs Elmyra 2 - Drone Synthesizer // Demo, Tutorial and Opinions

video upload by Dexba

"SUBTITLES AVAILABLE (in many languages!) I've had the lucky chance to be able to check out the Elmyra 2, by Neutral Labs. It has a very interesting approach to performance and sound building: it looks easy, but it can get way deeper than you think. After playing with it for a long while, I decided to offer you a tour of its functions, plus my (unrequested) opinions, all in this desktop configuration. Since the video was getting pretty long already, even by just covering the basic functions, I decided to keep the eurorack approach for a later time, also because that would have prompted me to give even more (unrequested) opinions, and the possible combinations of modules would have been endless (except for the mandatory huge reverb!). In this video, I used the very good reverb on the Dirtywave M8 Tracker, which was very handy because of its 3.5mm jack and the capability of isolating just the active channel on the cable. I hope you'll find the video useful, in its "overview" part, and I hope the "opinion" part could spark some constructive debate."

Elmyra 2 - 2.2 Firmware Update: Exploring the new features

video upload by Oscillator Sink

"The new 2.2 update for the Elmyra 2 was recently released and it ticked off almost everything I had on my wish-list in terms of new features - so, that's nice! In this video, rather than just reading out the release notes, instead I decided to put together a patch which just happened to make use of all of the new features in the update - almost as if I planned it.

Transparency notice: the Elmyra2 was kindly provided to me by Neutral Labs for free for the purposes of making videos on it. No editorial oversight has been provided to Neutral Labs and no other payment has been received. As always I'm only interested in featuring instruments that I'm genuinely excited about on the channel.

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
