All we have is a couple of Instagram posts but it looks like Black Corporation, the people behind Deckard’s Dream, have built a clone of the Elka Synthex. They are calling it Xerxes.


Here’s the first image.

Let’s compare that to the original Elka.

Yep, that matches the main section of the front panel really well. The Synthex is an 8-voice polyphonic analogue synthesizer with 2 digitally controlled oscillators per note, individual envelopes, cross modulation and a multi-mode filter.

Doesn’t look like it has the sequencer of the original. Here’s another shot from the show.
