ASM has introduced the Hydrasynth Explorer, a compact version of their innovative Hydrasynth keyboard.

The Hydrasynth Explorer is arguably the most powerful minisynth ever, featuring a very flexible synth architecture, battery-powered operation, a new ASM PolyTouch mid-sized keybed with polyphonic aftertouch, CV/Gate connectivity and more.

It features the same sound engine as the original Hydrasynth, with an advanced wavetable synthesis engine, 3 Oscillators, dual Wave Mutators and 2 filters that can be configured in series or parallel.

Here’s a performance video by Dominic Au:

In the performance demo, all sounds are generated by the Hydrasynth Explorer.
