Description
The Elka EM-44 is the desktop module version of the EK-44 4 operator FM based, 18 voice synthesizer with 8 oscillators. The two instruments are identical except for the form factors.

All 8 oscillators can be edited simultaneously or adjusted separately. The first 12 parameters are presented this way on the non backlit LCD screen. It should be noted the lCD display is readable at any angle a feature this instrument is known for.

A second set of editing parameters deal with the overall sound of the instrument. Some of the parameters that are familiar to synth enthusiasts are Pitch Envelope and LFO Vibrato.
A chorus effect rounds out the sound shaping section.

A nice feature in the editing portion is an over all level control for matching volume levels between programs. An additional set of editing features deal with the whole setup of the EM-44 very similar to whats now called Global Mode these days.
