A new futuristic, hardware synthesiser for DJs and live performers? That's what Ampethron Portable looks like...

Ampethron, a new synthesizer company, introduces Ampethron Portable – a live act and studio hardware device with unique a external controller and the possibility to endless extensions and upgrades (install next synthesizers, instruments and algorithms to the hardware device).

Here is the complete specification of Ampethron portable FX synthesizer:

Ampethron FX+ synthesizer is a primary synthesizer installed in every Ampethron portable device. FX+ is synthesizer with both classic and futuristic/innovative algorithms of sound synthesis allowing you to create FX sounds and soundscapes never heard before. The main advantage of FX+ synth is speed of work – you can rapidly create hundreds of FXs while sounds amazing in every setting.

1x Modulation Matrix with 1X1000 power
- 3x Individual source/destination slots with 3x control knobs
Sources: LFO1, LFO2, LFO3, None, Modulation envelope,
Destinations: (OSC1, OSC2, OSC3, OSC4, None)

Ampethron Portable killer controls

- FX Section:

- Ping-pong BPM synchronized delay (Free from 1ms or BPM synched)

Delay, Feedback, Dry/Wet control knobs

- Device internal tempo / BPM control from 20 to 230 BPM

- Chorus/Flanger with Rate, Depth, Pre-delay, Feedback, Mix control knobs

- Sound characteristics / boosting – Sharp & Fat controls   

- Saturation and Output control

- Output limiter with limiter release control and on/off

- Main control section:

- Midi device selector (possibility to connect midi devices via USB

- Sound output selector (possibility to connect external audio soundcards via USB but not all soundcards are supported)

- Preset manager with 9 default banks and more than 140+ default presets (you can create your own banks and presets for your liveacts) 

- External controller: 4x very fast, responsive buttons to play notes (C3, C4, C5, C6) with very low latency – much easier to play notes in rhythm than with a piano (because of shorter path length of buttons), 

- 2x joysticks to control Filter cutoff and Pitch (up/down) and a digital control of joystick behavior (attack and release time of every joystick)

- preset browsing with left and right controls on external controller
