Los Angeles, October 23rd, 2020 - Wide Blue Sound today releases Elysium, an inspiring two-layer synth for creating music infused with tonal rhythms, movement and unrivaled playability.
With an entirely new way to create striking percussive pulses, beautiful organic arps, evolving pads, and hybrid instruments, Elysium simply cannot be replicated by any other synth on the market.
Elysium features two layers: Perc and Synth.
The PERC layer includes synths, mallets, pianos, guitar, and many other types of percussive tonal sounds. By twisting a knob you can quickly add Morph and Bass sounds, and use the Flux, Analog, and Spread controls to easily add variety between each note.
The 3 engine modes turn lush sustained sounds into rhythmic performers. Choose a mode, then adjust how it hits using the custom-tuned controls for each mode. The Depth knob brings in a sustain bed made from any of the 4 sounds, which you filter with the Settings icon.
It also allows for step-based Pitch, Accents, and a set of Actions that includes Double and Triple hits (ratchets), Tightening notes and Reverse/Fade-in notes.
The innovative Sound Browser allows you to preview entire pitch range of a sound before loading them into your patch. So if you know you want a great bass sound, you can preview the sounds in their bass range before committing. You can also filter by Mood or by the Type of instrument that was multi-sampled for Elysium.
Most fun of all, the Sound Browser includes a Generate Section that allows you to algorithmically generate Perc and Synth sounds based on your mood tags, or generate entirely new Perc FX and Synth FX chains! And the Cancel button allows for freedom of experimentation, as you can always revert back to what you had before opening the Browser.
Rhythm Lock locks all rhythmic elements of the Phase Sequencer and Synth Engine
The sound locks are a perfect example of the dozens of thoughtful and innovative features sprinkled around Elysium to help make sound design a more fun and practical experience. There is far more to discover in the world of Elysium, which is available now.
Wide Blue Sound also worked with Native Instruments to ensure Elysium supports the full range of accessible NKS Keyboard and Maschine controllers, for a hand-on, mouse-free experience.
More information about ELYSIUM including specs can be found on the Wide Blue Sound website.
