Cherry Audio’s Elka-X Synthesiser is a modern take on the legendary Synthex, a rare Italian analog synthesiser known for its stable digitally-controlled analog oscillators and flexible four-pole multimode filter. Elka-X preserves the authentic sound of the Synthex and expands upon its feature set with additional touches like chord memory, over 600 pro patches, and flexible MIDI mapping. It also includes studio-quality echo and reverb effects, mono and unison modes, and velocity response, making it a powerful tool for modern studio environments. Elka-X is available in AU, VST, VST3, AAX, and Standalone formats for both Mac and Windows.
