ASM Hydrasynth Explorer Now $499 (Was $599)

The price on the Ashun Sound Machines Hydrasynth Explorer has dropped to $499, the cheapest we have seen for this synthesizer.

The Hydrasynth Explorer packs the sound engine of the original Hydrasynth into a portable mini-key synth. It features the same powerful sound design options and even polyphonic aftertouch, but in a much more compact, battery-powerable package.

The synthesizer is an eight-voice polyphonic design, with an extremely deep voice architecture that combines wave-morphing oscillators, two filters per voice, extensive modulation options and flexible effects.

With the current sale pricing, the Hydrasynth Explorer is arguably the most powerful mini-key synth ever, and is one of the most affordable options for trying out polyphonic aftertouch.


  • Eight-voice polyphonic wave-morphing synthesizer
  • 37 mid-sized keys with polyphonic aftertouch
  • Battery-powered option
  • Two OLED displays for waveform visualization and patch editing/performance display
  • Four endless encoders for individual or macro controls
  • Complex arpeggiator with extensive control options
  • Extensive modulation matrix with up to 32 paths
  • Three oscillators per voice with 219 selectable waveforms
  • Oscillators 1 and 2 offer Wave Scanning between user-definable wave lists
  • Four mutators per voice, allowing FM, several flavors of PWM, Harmonic scanning, Sync, and more
  • Open-ended ring modulator and noise section
  • Two filters per voice, with parallel or series configurations
  • Filter 1 offers tons of distinct types, including LPG and Formant filters
  • Filter 2: classic state-variable 12dB/octave morphing filter
  • Five looping DAHDSR envelopes with option for relating segment duration to current BPM
  • Five complex LFOs
  • Integrated delay, reverb, and various modulation effects
  • CV & Gate outs for easy integration into modular synth workflows
