The HYDRASYNTH EXPLORER is the ultimate in power and portability, offering the powerful Hydrasynth sound engine together with battery powered operation and a new ASM PolyTouch® polyphonic aftertouch mid-sized keybed. The greatest attention has been put to its user interface, making sound creation a breeze. This is the ultimate companion for a portable setup, where a smaller footprint in needed. Utilizing an advanced wavetable synthesis engine, 3 Oscillators, dual Wave Mutators and 2 filters that can be configured in series or parallel, the tone generating capabilities are unmatched. As for the performance capabilities, The HYDRASYNTH EXPLORER has our proprietary 37-note mid-sized Polytouch™ keybed that offers polyphonic aftertouch over each note, giving you the type of expressive control found only in certain vintage synths.
The Hydrasynth Explorer has the world's first and only mid-sized polyphonic aftertouch keybed. The Polytouch® keyboard brings a level of expression not found in most keyboards that only have velocity or monophonic aftertouch. Coupled with an extremely deep but easy to use synthesis engine, the Explorer is a giant step forward in what an affordable synthesizer can be. The Explorer's synthesis engine makes use of customizable wave morphing oscillators and Mutators that can allow FM synthesis, harmonic sweeping, 3 forms of pulse width modulation, of any incoming waveform, wavestacking and other processed. The filter 1 uses a AI based algorithm to model many classic filters allowing it to do very convincing virtual analog synthesis as well as the other forms of digital synthesis.
