Digitone is my favorite Elektron synth. This being the case, I was quite excited to find that Elektron developer Ess Mattisson started streaming on Twitch. According to his Elektronauts profile he is “on the Applied Design team at Elektron, where I conjure synths and push pixels”. So as you might imagine this is some great content from someone directly involved with the creation of this awesome synth.
I’ve embedded the recordings in this post, so grab some coffee or a cocktail, sit back, and enjoy his first two epic videos related to FM synthesis and Digitone.
“Let’s Learn Some FM”
In this first video which is just over an hour, he offers a free form intro to FM synthesis – after some FM jams while he wait’s for his coffee to be ready.
“Let’s Dive Into the Digitone”
This video is just over 2 hours and starts with a jam (again while waiting for coffee) followed by a free form dive into the Digitone with some deconstruction of original sounds and patterns 🎆.
