Soundiron’s Elektronik 25 captures the rare, historic sounds of the unique Elektronika EM-25. This synthesizer was manufactured somewhere in the Soviet Union and has since become a bit of a collector’s item. The EM-25 is a polyphonic synthesizer with a strong focus on strings, organ and brass.
It has a 4-octave keyboard, as well has a variety of knobs to control the envelope, modulation and filter. Elektronik 25 features sustains, staccatos and a collection of FX pad sounds. We recorded the instrument articulations in wide stereo and direct line in.
After that, we crafted over forty evolving atmospheric pads from the source content to enhance usability. Elektronik 25 offers a rare glimpse at sought-after Soviet-era synthesizers and the rich strings sounds can enhance any composition.
We’ve packed the GUI with lots of great sound-shaping controls that give you the flexibility to warp the sound in many ways. You have control over Volume, Attack, Release, Transient Offset, Vibrato and Octave layering.
The “Glide” control slider allows you to play legato and portamento leads. You’ll also find an adaptable LFO system, with selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in time.
You can also apply your choice of 13 lowpass, high-pass and FX filter, with assignable modulation con-trol options, including velocity, modwheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control.
You can also use our customizable arpeggiator, with a built-in velocity sequencer table and control over arp direction, note timing, swing, randomization and duration.
Elektronik 25 was recorded in a dry studio using a pair of Neumann TLM 103 large diaphragm microphones and direct line in. We carefully recorded its stock presets with sustains and staccato samples.
The included octave, vibrato and FX rack give you an easy-to-use interface to completely customize and shape its fat analog sound to fit a variety of creative styles.
The library comes equipped with flexible control features, like Swell, pitch Glide, Attack, Release, Vibrato, and Octave. There’s also a complete DSP effects rack, including convolution reverb with dozens of unique spaces, such as cathedrals, churches, halls, bunkers, garages, tunnels, chambers, rooms and plenty of otherworldly FX impulses to fully explore and endless variety of strange and unexpected sonic manipulations.
