The Microwave XTk is a beautifully knob-laden 49-key synthesizer. It uses digital wavetable synthesis in combination with FM synthesis to blend waveforms into complex new sounds. It includes digital effects and a powerful array of filter options. Although this synth is fully digital, many consider it to be very analog-sounding.
