Overview

The HYDRASYNTH EXPLORER is the ultimate in power and portability, offering the powerful Hydrasynth sound engine together with battery powered operation and a new ASM PolyTouch® polyphonic aftertouch mid-sized keybed. The greatest attention has been put to its user interface, making sound creation a breeze. This is the ultimate companion for a portable setup, where a smaller footprint in needed.

Utilizing an advanced wavetable synthesis engine, 3 Oscillators, dual Wave Mutators and 2 filters that can be configured in series or parallel, the tone generating capabilities are unmatched.

As for the performance capabilities, The HYDRASYNTH EXPLORER has our proprietary 37-note mid-sized Polytouch™ keybed that offers polyphonic aftertouch over each note, giving you the type of expressive control found only in certain vintage synths.

Polytouch™ keybed

The HYDRASYNTH EXPLORER features the ASM Polytouch® 37-note mid-sized semi-weighted keybed, allowing both ON/OFF velocity and aftertouch as well as full polyphonic aftertouch.

In recent years companies have been trying to find ways to give the keyboard musician more ways to better express themselves. The problem is that their solution is almost never a keyboard, so you have to learn a new technique to play them.

The Polytouch™ keybed features high quality, mid-sized keys, so you can start playing it instantly.

Portability

The HYDRASYNTH EXPLORER can be powered by it's included power supply or by 8 x AA batteries, not included.

The expected life for battery operation is around 3-4 hours depending on type, make, and model.
