|The Soviet-made Rigaís Music Instruments Factory (RMIF) Elsita is a slept-on drum synth/module, capable of producing fat analog sub bass and glitchy hats similar to the much more beloved and expensive Rolands, with a character all its own.
As a fairly unpopular Russian machine, itís difficult to find information about it, though various jams on YouTube show off its versatility when connected to drum triggers, MPCs, or other external sources.
RMIF ELSITA is a powerfull 4 channel analog drum synthesizer, produced in the USSR in 1980s. It has 4 identical channels (which can be used & edited freely). On every channel you can change: trigger signal sensitivity, tone, attack, release, tone\noise balance, filter, volume level. Each channel has trigger Input on a standart 1/4 mono Jack for 4 pads.
The Elista can be triggered from any drum pads like classic Simmons or modern Roland\Yamaha or any audio source - line outs of the drum machine or soundcard or CV Gate etc. The module has Audio Output (1/4 Jack) and Headphone Output (1/4 Jack). This is an armoured antitank piece of gear and the sound it produces is very unique! Can synthesize huge pallete of sounds - from modern punchy BD & SD to classic 808 or 909 subs or claps.
