Hydrasynth Explorer in excellent condition. Includes original power supply. Great synth, immaculate sounds and capabilities. Need to move quickly, only serious inquiries please. Does not come with original box. Will ship in a double padded box, UPS. Will ship within 3 days of purchase.

The Hydrasynth Explorer gives you full access to the renowned 8-voice sound engine of the original Hydrasynth in a compact, scaled-down package. Featuring 37 PolyTouch-enabled slim synth keys and battery-powered capability, the Hydrasynth Explorer is a grab-and-go sound lab for intrepid synthesists. Like the 49-key and desktop Hydrasynth models, the Hydrasynth Explorer boasts 8-voice polyphony; each voice serves up three WaveScane oscillators offering 219 different waveforms, with four Mutators total for extensive waveshaping. There's a ton of potential for creating nuanced, nonlinear sounds. The five ADSR envelope generators offer delay and hold and can have either linear or exponential curves between stages, and the five LFOs offer a total of 11 waveshapes plus delay, fade in, and smoothing. Throw in a highly responsive pitch-bend strip and a mod strip with LED depth indicators, and you’ve got a compact performance synthesizer with endless sound design capabilities!

With its 32-slot modulation matrix, Hydrasynth Explorer empowers you to create incredibly nuanced and expressive sounds. Synthesists at Sweetwater are particularly impressed with its envelope generators (five per voice), which offer delay and hold in addition to ADSR stages. Each stage of the envelope can sweep through exponential and logarithmic curves, which offers big creative potential for long, evolving modulations.

Like most of the functions on Hydrasynth Explorer, envelopes can be locked to bpm for tempo-synced modulations. Combined with the looping function, you can use the envelopes as LFOs with interesting waveshapes. And speaking of LFOs, Hydrasynth Explorer offers five LFOs per voice with 11 total waveshapes. That includes the 8-step LFO, which allows you to create custom waveshapes.

Whether you're performing or recording, Hydratouch Explorer delivers an incredibly expressive playing experience, especially when you dig into its PolyTouch capabilities. PolyTouch is a new method of polyphonic aftertouch sensing. You have full control over aftertouch curves, offsets, and release times, giving you big creative potential when using aftertouch to manipulate your sounds. Plus, you can expand your performance even further with the highly responsive pitch and mod strips!
