Elta Solar 50 Review

SOLAR 50 Review, full tutorial and patch ideas

Solar 50 from Elta Music is a 10 voice synth with 50 independently tunable analog oscillators. It’s actually not as complicated as it looks, but it does represent a non-traditional and experimental approach to how synths should be programmed and played – meaning by feel and by ear than with black and white keys.

In this video I take a look at the pros and cons of this approach, as well as everything else:
