Ellitone Multi-Synth is a portable multi-engine Synthesizer originally released in August 2018 and is now available in a new black design for more musicians.
On Etsy (also the owner of Reverb.com) you can find many exciting music instruments from small indie developers. One of these is the Ellitone Multi-Synth a portable multi-engine Synthesizer that I already covered in 2018.
The synth was such a success that the developer decided to design the synth so that it could be built in larger quantities. So no wood optics anymore.
According to the official information, the developer built 168 of them and shipped to 24 different countries. That’s a lot of such an indie synth, congrats! But what is Ellitone Multi-Synth?
Portable, Multi-Engine & Patchable
The Multi-Synth is a digital experimental Synthesizer that is powered by 6 sound synthesis modes:
- Patterns (sequencer)
- FreqMod(FM synthesis + sequencer)
- Infinite Bounce Matter (bouncing ball style sequencer
- Chirpp (experimental cosine-grain synthesis)
- Panic Voice Engine (brutal data distortion type synthesis)
The synth is operable with 4 keys, 4 knobs, and a center patch bay. The Patching Area in the center is arranged in such a way that any connection made from one of the 6 Smaller Output Jacks into the 1 Larger Input Jack will make an immediate change to the sound that is understandable. This simple concept allows for someone without any knowledge of synthesis terminology to be able to play and patch without becoming confused over concepts like CV, Gates, Triggers, Envelopes, and so on…
Further to know: the 5 Input Holes on the large Input Jack located in the patch bay represents the inputs to these settings: use the 5 Included Patch Wires to Connect the 6 output option jacks into any of the 5 Input Holes. Each of the 6 smaller output option jacks will select a unique option for that setting.
Multi-Synth is powered by mini-USB and offers an audio output through a 1/8 inch (headphone) style jack 3.5mm.
Ellitone Multi-Synth is available now for €69.03 + shipping (p.example Germany, Austria… 14€) from the official Etsy store. 5 patch wires are included in the box.
