The Elka EK-22 is an Italian synthesizer from the year 1986 with analog yet digitally controlled oscillators. It was often called the “Italian Matrix 6”. The 6-voice synth had a monophonic mode, split- and portamento-functions, as well as a built-in chorus quite close to that of Roland’s Juno synths. The whole instrument is based upon 6 Curtis CEM3396 chips. The EK-22 came with 64 presets and enough space for another 32 user presets.
