37-Note Digital Wave Morphing Synthesizer

Description

37-Note Digital Wave Morphing Synthesizer

The HYDRASYNTH EXPLORER is the ultimate in power and portability, offering the powerful Hydrasynth sound engine together with battery powered operation and a new ASM PolyTouch® polyphonic aftertouch mid-sized keybed. The greatest attention has been put to its user interface, making sound creation a breeze. This is the ultimate companion for a portable setup, where a smaller footprint in needed. Utilizing an advanced wavetable synthesis engine, 3 Oscillators, dual Wave Mutators and 2 filters that can be configured in series or parallel, the tone generating capabilities are unmatched. As for the performance capabilities, The HYDRASYNTH EXPLORER has our proprietary 37-note mid-sized Polytouch™ keybed that offers polyphonic aftertouch over each note, giving you the type of expressive control found only in certain vintage synths.

Portability!

The HYDRASYNTH EXPLORER can be powered by it's included power supply or by 8 x AA batteries, not included. The expected life for battery operation is around 3-4 hours depending on type, make, and model.

Oscillators

The tone generation capability is the heart of any synthesizer. The 3 oscillators allow you to choose from a selection of 219 single cycle waveforms. Wavemorphing is a feature usually found on synths with preset wave tables. Creating user wavetables is arduous or downright impossible. Unlike most wavetable synths, our oscillators 1 & 2 have our WAVELIST mode. This mode  allows you to pick and choose 8 waves, from our bank of 219, arrange them in the order you want, and then morph from one to another.

CV/GATE - MIDI - USB

There is the standard MIDI and USB/MIDI interfaces on the synth but we go deeper and allow the use of CV/GATE interfaces for connecting to the modular world. It supports the standard voltages for Eurorack modulars, the 1.2V per octave Buchla standard, as well as some of the Japanese Volts>HZ products. The MOD in and outs allow for modulation from DC to full audio ranges, expanding your modulation capabilities.
