Elektron Synth Designer Ess announced on his Instagram feed that he’s leaving Elektron to release his own instrument along with Felisha Ledesma.
“I’m leaving Elektron 🪂
From humble beginnings in customer support to designing the synthesizers of my dreams. Never could I have imagined that I would be a part of some of the most successful instruments that Elektron ever launched. From designing the UI/UX of the Digi-series to the synth engine of the Digitone and Model:Cycles, it’s truly been special.
However, it’s time for me to move on and move forward. At the end of the month, you’ll find me in my new home in Berlin – working on the finishing touches of my very own synthesizer under the name @fors.fm with @felishaledesma
And if anyone is wondering; yes – I’m open for work!”
I’m a HUGE fan of the Digitone so I’m really excited to see what they come up with.
