Sonicware shared this preview of ZTRINGS – a new physical modeling synth engine for the upcoming ELZ-1 play.
The ELZ-1 play is currently a limited edition ‘passion project’ of ELZ-1 developer Dr. Yu Endo. The original ELZ-1 went out of production because of the global semiconductor shortage. The ELZ-1 play is described as a sort of mkII version of the original, but also ‘a more novel and experimental synth.’
The ZTRINGS engine does not yet have a screen UI, but the engine has been selected for implementation on the ELZ_1p play.
ELZ_1 Play Features:
- 14 synth engines + 26 effects
- New 4-track looper for one-touch record/playback/overdub.
- Velocity-enabled keyboard, stereo speakers built into the side panel, USB audio & MIDI.
Sonicware has not announced plans at this time to put the ELZ-1 play into production.
