Elecktron Digitone FM Synthesizer

   0 reviews  -  326 views
    Swedish musical instrument company Elektron today announced Digitone, a polyphonic digital synthesizer featuring a powerful yet user-friendly take on FM synthesis.

    Digitone is a very special eight voice digital synthesizer. It combines a modernized FM implementation with a classic subtractive synthesis signal flow, making it a powerful source of highly unique tones and timbres. The FM sound generators have been optimized for a clean and efficient sound design process. Turn a few knobs, and something interesting and musically relevant is bound to happen.

    Naturally, the world class Elektron sequencer is an integral part of Digitone. Four tracks are available for the internal sounds and four dedicated MIDI tracks stand ready for controlling external gear. Use the sequencer to quickly add chords or create melodies adhering to a specific scale. Add probability settings to individual notes. Create tracks with different lengths. Digitone makes it easy to create intricate and musical patterns.

    »Digitone is the sound explorer’s choice. It is like a vortex to completely new sound territories. Its tone is so unique, and handling it is a delight. This synthesizer will take you to places you didn’t think existed«, says Jonas Hillman, CEO of Elektron.

    Master of the digital method. The sound of steel monoliths and flickering neons signs. Icy, metallic perfection. Magnificent desolation. Through the unique and accessible take on FM synthesis, Digitone is a prime source of new sounds and timbres. Down the rabbit hole we go.

    Eight voice polyphonic digital synthesizer
    Digitone represents our vision of how FM synthesis can be revitalized and modernized. Here’s how: combine FM sound generation with a classic subtractive synthesis signal flow. From jagged chaos to mellow soundscapes in less than a second. Digitone is one unique box.

    Ultra digital
    Choose from multiple FM algorithms featuring carefully selected parameters. Shape the tones with powerful filters. Arrange them with the intuitive Elektron sequencer. Round off with the stellar effects. Now enjoy the most spectacular sounds, seemingly emanating from some parallel universe.

    Overbridge enabled
    Overbridge for Digitone brings new-school FM synthesis to DAW environments. Edit Digitone parameters directly from your computer screen. Record all internal tracks individually. Overbridge greatly enhances the Digitone workflow.

    Overbridge for Digitone will be released later this year. Stay tuned for more information. Learn more about Overbridge at
