Sonicware ELZ_1

Diverse sound engines include the FM SYNTH, the 8BIT WAVE MEMORY SYNTH that allows editing and morphing, the DNA Explorer that can be used to examine and alter waveforms from captured audio, the SAND FLUTE noise engine, and the SiGRINDER granular synthesizer.

From the day you put your hands on the ELZ_1, you will become a sound adventurer.

Start a journey in search of exciting sounds that are unique to this world.


Synthesizer engines
The diverse synthesizer engines of the ELZ_1 were all developed from the ground up.

  • FM SYNTH (4 operators with feedback and detuning)
  • 8BIT WAVE MEMORY SYNTH (waveform editing and morphing with FM mode)
  • DNA EXPLORER (extract and generate waveforms from audio)
  • SiGRINDER (granular synthesizer engine)
  • STANDARD OSC (sin, square, triangle and saw waves)
  • LOW-BIT OSC (sin, square, triangle and saw waves)
  • CUSTOM OSC (blend between two oscillators)
  • MASKED NOISE(Noise synth engine)
  • SAND FLUTE(Noise synth engine)

The filter, effect and arpeggiator functions provide powerful support for sound design

Letter, Start Up Guide


A step sequencer with up to 64 steps and 6-voices has been added in Version 2.

  • Length of 1 to 64 steps

  • Real-time and step recording

  • Notes between steps can be tied

  • Up to 128 patterns can be created

  • Build sequences in real time during live performances using the five real-time recording modes (add/overwrite tied notes, add/overwrite one-step notes, erase notes)

  • Metronome

  • Import/export sequence data

 
 
 

Sync with external clock signals

(Compatible with volca series and Pocket Operator series)

By connecting a device that outputs a clock pulse of less than 5V*, which includes KORG volcas and Teenage Engineering Pocket Operators, to the ELZ_1 AUX IN jack, their step sequencers and arpeggiators can be synchronized.

*Synchronization with devices that exceed 5 V, including modular synths and rhythm machines, is possible by using a commercially-available attenuator

Other features

  • With a Pocket Operator, both the clock signal and mono audio signal can be input by connecting with a stereo mini pin cable

  • Using the SYNC THRU function, the clock signal can be output from the headphone jack, allowing multiple devices that support synchronization to be chained

 
 
 

Synthesizer enhancements

Parameters that support modulation have been added to SONICWARE’s unique DNA EXPLORER, SiGRINDER and SAND FLUTE synth engines.
All the parameters of these synth engines can be modulated with an LFO or envelope.

  • Real-time modulation of the EXPLORE parameter in DNA EXPLORER and the DIG parameter in SiGRINDER makes the sounds of these synth engines even more dynamic and further enhances their organic characteristics.

  • By adding a GLIDE parameter to the MONO and LEGATO modes of the SAND FLUTE noise engine, the noise sound of different pitches can be tied together smoothly, increasing the expressiveness of this synth.
