See the FAQ before asking questions.

I've recently received an ELZ-1, and really love it, amazing sound quality and inspiring instrument.. However in many synth engines the LFO is only assignable to pitch. How can the LFO be assigned to other areas?

I’m happy because you love it :-)

 

current version 1.0.77 can assign below:

Lo bit

BitDepth

WaveType

Duty

Pitch

Standard

WaveType

Duty

Pitch

Custom

WaveType

SwitchPeriod

Duty

Pitch

8Bit Wave Memory、FM、DNA, SiGRINDER

Pitch

MaskedNoise

Noise

Mask

MaskLevel

Pitch

SandFlute

Noise

Filter

BandWidth

x1Band

x2Band

x3Band

x4Band

x5Band

AllBand

 

and we plan to add more assignable parameters on future version. ( maybe next we update DNA& SiGRINDER)

 

thank you,

Yu Endo

@Yu Endo Ah yes, sorry I should have been more clear about which engines. But yes, if could add them to DNA and SiGRINDER as a start that would be amazing. I feel like all should have greater LFO routing it if it's possible, it just offers greater timbral flexibility. And yes, I'm happy your happy too :) It's really great, look forward to seeing how it evolves through firmware updates too.

Also, can you add me to the Newsletter? I've tried reloading your site on Safari and Chrome browsers, but the newsletter box won't load :(

Hi,

Many thanks to you, i'm very happy with your creation, ELZ_1 is a great synthesiser. Unfortunately i have some difficults to connect it to my midi keyboard controller (novation SL25 MK2) and/or Linnstrument . I have applying all step (purchasing mio one, usb mini B/A, connect all elements, go to the ELZ_1 menu and Midi/Usb Midi/Midi Host mode) but my keyboard do not recognize it.

Is it compatible to MPE devices?. Have you some advise concerning the best choice of midi keyboard controller to use with it and/or a deep tutorial concerning this subject.

 

I wish you the best and thanks in advance.

Hello, thank you for your purchase and comments.

I have some questions.

1) Your mio is this, right?

2) usb mini B/A means

USB mini host cable (Mini USB (male)‒USB A (female))?

FYI)

Thank you for your answer.

Please let me know color of USB icon on display.

1. Turn on ELZ_1

2. Choose USB MIDI HOST mode

3. Gray USB icon appears on display.

4. Connect your photo’s usb MIDI interface.

5. USB icon color will change gray to white.

 

Thank you.

On ELZ_1 windows USB icon color change gray to white but impossible to control ELZ_1 with Linnstrument or SL25Mk2. ELZ_1 OS is version 2. Thank you in advance .

Thank you for reply.

If USB icon is white, ELZ_1 correctly connected mio midi interface.

Please check below:

Did SL25Mk2 connects ELZ_1 via mio’s 5DIN?

ELZ_1’s setting of MIDI RX channel and SL25’s MIDI TX channel is same setting?

7月16日

Thank you for the help. SL25Mk2 connects ELZ_1 with mio's 5 DIN (white IN and black OUT) and i will check later MIDI RX/TX channel settings . If the pb are maintaining, have you some advise/good experience with another keyboard controller? perhaps the problem are not on ELZ_1's side but SL25Mk2.

7月16日

thank you for prompt reply.

 

The supported MIDI messages in Ver. 2.x.x are as follows.

1) NOTE ON/OFF (responds to velocity)

2) Pitch bend

3) Program change (can be used for MEMORY selection)

4) Song select

 

I use blow MIDI keyboards, these are no problem.

ALESIS Q49

Korg Nano key2 and Nano pad2

Korg TR

 

if you can try, please check mio and SL25Mk2 by PC/Mac.

Hi, is the .e1p pattern file format documented somewhere ? Would like to get hold of the notes I playe into sequencer. Thanks.

7月24日

Hi. I’m Sorry, we didn’t make that document. Thank you

7月20日

Many thanks, Yu for your advice. Is it possible to you to check if it will be possible to use the Alesis Vortex Wireless II with ELZ_1, certainly my best musical companion at this moment...I hope you the best.

Hi. It is difficult to check the compatibility with all devices. Sorry. But So I'm going to make a forum thread that can report on compatibility.

7月22日

Hi congratulations for the amazing creation, I’m very happy with my new ELZ_1.

Is it possible to send midi out or CC via USB connection? Sorry if it sounds silly but I couldn’t figure it out. Thank you :)

7月24日

Thank you so much! Current Ver2 firmware can’t do that. Sorry. But We plan to make CC function. So I add your opinion to our list. Thank you

7月25日

@Yu Endo Thank you! That would be awesome playing on the ELZ_1 and recording the notes and automations in the iPad or Mac/Pc. Thanks again! :)

Hello @Yu Endo,

 

First of all congrats for creating this small but powerful synth. I really love the idea, the sound and the form. It reminds me of my old Famicom and my favourite childhood games.

 

Unfortunately, I have a problem: I cannot connect the ELZ-1 to any of my computers in order to update the synths FW.

I've tried a Lenovo laptop, a MacBook Air 2015, I've used 3 different usb cables and I've rebooted both computers several times. When I connect it to the Lenovo laptop running W10, it says that the USB device Device Descriptor Request Failed and W10 will now stop the device from running. On the MacBook Air I get nothing at all.

 

Any idea what is wrong? Should I return my ELZ-1 to the retailer and ask for a new one?

 

KR, Zbyszek

Well. I downloaded the update file from the website (The english page, My Japanese is non-existent), unzipped it and transferred it to the ELZ. But I got the message that it's version 2.1.93 instead of version 2.1.99. No biggie, but I wonder if I did something wrong or if the file on the website is actually Ver.2.1.93.

  • I really enjoy playing the ELZ-1's keyboard. The keys have a satisfying feel to them and are well designed. One feature that I think would improve the playing experience would be the ability to map different scales along the "white key" buttons to make playing the correct notes easier (similar to what Korg does with their Gadget app and Electribe instruments). This feature could be used in conjunction with the sequencer to create satisfying pieces of music more quickly and more easily. It would also aid in live and improvisational scenarios, or just jamming with friends! To me this concept sounds like a natural fit for the ELZ-1.
