In this video, synth designer Ken MacBeth explores the sounds of the new MacBeth Elements synthesizer.
It’s not an overview of the Elements synth, but raw video of MacBeth exploring the range of sounds that it is capable of.
Here are a couple more videos in MacBeth’s series:
The third video pits MacBeth’s Elements Synthesizer against the MacBeth MK1 Monster 5U modular synthesizer.
Here’s what he has to say about it:
The keyboard and modulation functions are driving the bottom row of the Mk1 Modular. That is, including the Elements synthesizer, 6 audio oscillators. The Elements Spring Reverberator is well active here too….!
The row above on the Mk1 is another 3 Oscillators/Mixer/Filter/EGs etc and that is being driven in a percussive way froma Korg SQ-10 Voltage Controlled sequencer…watch out for one of my (own) x-series modules fly out of the rack I’m at as I bash away! It wasn’t screwed in- and it made a soft landing!
The Elements Synthesizer is currently available to order at Alex 4/Schneiders Buero, Analogue Haven and Awave. It is also available directly from MacBeth Studio Systems.
