Synthox 1.5 for UVI Falcon Expansion

The raw analog power of the Elka Synthex returns in Synthox version 1.5, this time as a versatile hybrid Analog/FM workstation! Synthox features a dual-layer architecture which lets you freely mix raw waves from the Synthex and EK-44 for a wild new range of sonic possibilities. Both synths were fully serviced then deeply multi-sampled to give you a complete range of raw waveforms, noise oscillators and custom patches with the authentic hardware character.

Synthox 1.5 provides many easy-to-use modulation options via two arpeggiators (one per-layer), an LFO and a step modulator. Take full control over both layers waveshape, amplitude and filter envelopes as well as pitch, stereo and filter sections and a fast modwheel assignment system for versatile sound design and performance capabilities

Inspiration

A well regarded and increasingly rare analog synthesizer, the Synthex (1981-1985), comes from Italian manufacturer Elka and was made famous in part by Jean Michel Jarre. The unique oscillator design and lush filters in this synth pack a distinctly thick and raw sound.

Also included in Synthox 1.5 is a deep sampling of the Elka EK-44 (1986). A rare 4-operator FM synth based around Yamaha’s YM2203 chips, the EK-44’s raw digital sound palette makes a brilliant counterpoint to the Synthex and can lead to some truly unique sounds

From thick and sizzling textures to funky analog tones, digital bells and everywhere in-between, Synthox 1.5 is a fantastic instrument for those looking to draw on the classic 80’s sound of Elka.

What’s new in 1.5
Synthox now includes a deep sampling of the rare Elka EK-44 FM synthesizer, an expanded patch library, and dramatically faster load-times.
