Digitana Electronics started out with producing interfaces and expansion units for the classic EMS synthesizers Synthi A, AKS and VCS3. At Superbooth17, the company presented its first stand-alone instrument, the SX-1. It was derived from the Digitana Synthi AKS KS Expander and developed in collaboration with The Future Sound of London. The synthesizer features two analog VCOs, slew limiter and octave shift sections, a sample and hold LFO plus dual AD envelope based VCAs. Furthermore, the unit contains two 4-pole resonant filters, a voltage controlled slope generator as well as echo and distortion effects.
Furthermore, Digitana showed an early prototype of a digital instrument called Halia. It is based on two ARM micro controllers with separate stereo ADC / DAC audio sections and can be used as a pocket synth or Eurorack module. There is very little information on the Halia at this point. Digitana just mentioned that it will be capable of creating multi-oscillator drones, FM- and Buchla-style sounds. – We hope to have more information on this nifty little machine soon.
