Elektron have introduced the Digitone Keys synth. The new synth, based on their popular mini FM module the Digitone, features a 37-note keyboard to the right of the familiar hardware and extra knobs and modulation controls. The eight-voice polyphonic synth can now be played directly from the hardware without the need for an extra MIDI keyboard.
Elektron CPO Jon Mårtensson Elmrud said: “We designed Digitone Keys to grant instant access to its stellar FM sound engine. Whether it’s about creating sounds or playing them, the creative tactility offered by Digitone Keys makes the workflow very fluent and flexible." You can hear how the Digitone Keys sounds below and if you like what you hear, you can pick it up for £1,180. If that stretches your budget try their new affordable drum sampler Model:Sample.
