The EA-1 has many functions, such as the ability to build analog-style sounds by using its waveform , filter , effect knobs. It is possible to create two-part sequenced phrases using the two analog modelling tone generators. External audio sources can also be input, and processed with its resonant filter or effects knobs, and then synched to a sequence. The oscillator can be modulated using Ring modulation , Sync, or Decimator.
