Elektron Digitone Designed To Make FM Synthesis User-Friendly

At the 2018 NAMM Show, Elektron today introduced the Digitone, a polyphonic digital synthesizer that features what they call ‘a powerful yet user-friendly take on FM synthesis’.

The Digitone combines a modernized FM implementation with a classic subtractive synthesis signal flow, making it ideal, according to the company, for creating ‘highly unique tones and timbres’.

The Elektron Digitone sequencer offers four tracks for the internal sounds and four dedicated MIDI tracks for controlling external gear. You can use the sequencer to quickly add chords or create melodies adhering to a specific scale, Add probability settings to individual notes and create tracks with different lengths.

“Digitone is the sound explorer’s choice,” says Jonas Hillman, CEO of Elektron. “This synthesizer will take you to places you didn’t think existed.”

Scheduled for release later this year, Overbridge for Digitone brings new-school FM synthesis to DAW environments. Overbridge greatly enhances the Digitone workflow, allowing you to edit Digitone parameters directly from your computer screen and record all internal tracks individually.
