Red Sound Systems Elevata Analog 16 Voice Polyphonic Synthesizer

   0 reviews  -  1451 views

    The Analogue Synthesizer, mainstay of Seventies' and Eighties' music, is back, reinvented in a new, more reliable and flexible form. Physical modelling via powerful DSPs (Digital Signal Processors) allow all the warmth and control of the synthesizers of yesteryear without the problems of unstable tuning and unrepeatable sounds, and with modern benefits like realtime control and multitimbral access.

    Welcome to eleVAta, a 16-voice polyphonic synthesizer with all the highlights of the analog tradition, Pulse Width Modulation, Ring Mod, Resonant Filtering and ADSR Enveloping, combined with all the advantages of modern MIDI instruments like rock-solid tuning, perfect program recall, velocity response and 8 different timbres simultaneously available via 6 independent outputs. So whether your aim is to recreate 'classic' timbres like 70's Disco Bassline / Screaming PWM Lead, chart new sonic territory with realtime joystick manipulation of parameters such as filter frequency/resonance, or even combine both approaches in the same MIDI sequence, eleVAta is the perfect tool for you.

    With its ingenious ‘elevating’ front panel, eleVAta is as much at home on your studio desktop as it is in any conventional 3U rack space giving total flexibility in one unit like never before.

    In the future, eleVAta's capabilities will grow thanks to the ability to plug-in up to 3 extra EPROM-based DSP algorithms. This will allow you to use eleVAta’s hardware to produce many different sound generating applications such as a vocoders.

    But eleVAta already offers so much with its marriage of proven synthesis techniques and state of-the-art control. Now it's time to unlock the potential of analogue-style synthesis with modern control techniques in your music. Be creative and elevate your music to new levels!
