Motion Has Evolved.

Introducing ELYSIUM, an inspiring synthesizer that combines tonal rhythms with beautiful sounds to present a "utopia of possibility".

With an entirely new way to create striking pulses, beautiful organic arpeggios, evolving pads, and one-of-a-kind hybrid instruments, Elysium simply cannot be replicated by any other synth on the market.

A Playground of Movement

Some of the biggest synths end up being preset synths, with features built for the patch designers instead of the users. Elysium is different.

Enter a galaxy of macro knobs, generators and fun ways to create movement, where even your most basic patches sound more alive than they would in any other synth.

Elysium’s groundbreaking, critically-acclaimed UI was designed to give you the most power and flexibility possible with the least amount of resistance. 

Sound Comes First.

After years of rigorous design, Elysium skillfully combines live+hybrid instruments with the most iconic synths of all time.

Rich, Acoustic Instruments

Gamelans, pianos, mallets, a beautiful string section recorded at a church in New York, and much more.

Run it through Elysium’s acclaimed sequencer or play on your own.

Modern Synths & Bass

Wide Blue Sound sampled some of the most sought-after synths in history, collecting the best sounds for both producers and composers.

Beautiful, Lush Ambiences

Run hundreds of iconic synths through the Pulse-Chop-Flow Engine and find yourself lost in mesmerizing pulses, sweet leads, and meditative pads.

Sound Browser

  • Preview the entire pitch range of a sound before loading them into your patch. So if you want a great bass, you can preview all sounds in their bass range before committing.
  • Tag-based browser to find sounds quickly. 
  • Generate mood-based sound combos and FX chains with one click.
  • Cancel button allows freedom for experimentation because you can always revert back to what you had before opening the Browser.

Deep sampled.

Every sound source is multi-sampled.

And more importantly, even the atmospheres are mixed to work from bass to the highest range. Engage your listeners with thunderous lows, or bliss them out with zen-like highs.

The Most Powerful FX Section - FX are sound design too.

That’s why Wide Blue Sound created arguably the most robust and fun FX section ever seen in a synth, bar none.

  • Run the show with 31 electrifying stompboxes, amplifiers, adventurous mod and chorus-based effects, saturated delays, reverbs, and more.
  • 300 effect presets (not including Convolution Reverb presets), ranging from the extremely practical to things you’ve probably never heard in your life.
  • Incredibly diverse Convolution Reverb Library with 600+ reverbs in 27 reverb categories — from 9 world-class reverb units like the famous Bricasti M7, EMT 250 and Lexicon 480, to the most ethereal and otherworldly sounds imaginable.
  • Add to the mix funky harmonic plates, household items and actual samples of other live instruments… you could get lost exploring these alone for hours. Try running one of the hybrid mallets sounds through a piano impulse… song intro: done.

Generate Sounds and FX

In 2015 Wide Blue Sound pioneered “Intelligent Randomize” for you to make new patches, which gave you great starting points instead of dead-ends.

In 2020, generating sounds is no longer random.

From the Sound Browser or FX Pages, use the Generate buttons to combine thousands of hand-crafted sounds and FX presets to generate something brand new, uniquely yours, and human-approved.

Infinite inspiration at the click of a button.
