ASM Hydrasynth Explorer Product Details

The ASM Hydrasynth Explorer offers the 8-voice sound generation of the Hydrasynth Keyboard and Desktop and that in a compact and portable housing. If needed, the Hydrasynth Explorer can even be powered by battery. The scaled-down 37-key PolyTouch keyboard features the same polyphonic aftertouch of its larger sister models. Despite its small size, it offers excellent playability and expressiveness.

The extremely flexible yet easy-to-use sound engine features the famous WaveScan oscillators, Mutator waveshaping, a flexible dual filter section, a 32-slot modulation matrix, as well as two insert and two master effects. CV/GATE outputs are also included, making it easy to integrate Hypersynth Explorer into a modular system. The features are rounded off by USB MIDI and full-size MIDI DIN connectors. The usual fiddling with adapter cables is no longer necessary. As a clever detail, the ASM Hydrasynth Explorer can also be operated with 8xAA batteries, ideal for mobile operation on the go.
