Elektron have added two new Machines, SY Swarm and SY Raw, to the Syntakt to help you reach new levels of sonic possibilities. With this sweet duo, the OS 1.20 upgrade is focusing on the melodic side of the Syntakt and expanding its already vast sound design capability, tuned to your every wish, empowering you to take your music on fresh paths of melodic bliss.
Taking a leaf from the famed supersaw waveform but re-imagining in Elektron-style, the digital Machine, SY Swarm, is all about that sawtooth waveform which gives you seven of them in one mighty swarm. Control the detune, noise modulation, and use the dedicated animate modulator to create everything from a fat lead to an insane buzzing texture.
SY Raw puts all the classic analog waveforms at your fingertips in not only one but two oscillators, to be used as building blocks for your musical endeavors. Add a pinch of noise and a spoonful of ring modulation to the mix, and you have everything you need to create everything from low, low bass to cutting leads, and melodic percussion.
