Not sure if any of you have come across the Sonicware ELZ.1 before? It was announced at last years Winter NAMM but was not on sale at the time.

Sonicware is the brainchild of Dr. Yu Endo, synthesist and inventor. Based in Tokyo, where all products are hand made by a small team, Endo-san is passionate about digital music and creating accessible, fun products for music makers and sonic explorers. The ELZ_1 is the first production model and due to ship to dealers in May 2019

Here's the Spec:
8 Synthesiser Engines with 6 note polyphony: FM SYNTH (4 operators with feedback & detuning)
8BIT WAVE MEMORY SYNTH (waveform editing & morphing with FM mode)
DNA EXPLORER (extract & generate waveforms from imported audio) SiGRINDER (granular synth engine)
STANDARD OSC (sin, square, triangle & saw waves) LOW-BIT OSC (sin, square, triangle & saw waves)
MASKED NOISE (noise synth)
SAND FLUTE (noise synth)
Stereo line outputs & mini headphone jack Stereo mini jack AUX input
USB MIDI & updateable firmware
9 different filter types
8 Arpeggiator types
17 Effect types
Full colour graphic display screen (with monsters)

Price £499

Doesn't exactly rock my world but I am sure there will be plenty of takers. Bit expensive though? Let me know what you think and do we really need another synth like this?
