What synth was used to make MM-BBOX?

Curious because I love these sounds. It’s obviously FM samples but from which synth? It would also be cool to know something about the history and how/why these particular sounds were chosen by Elektron. Anyone?

The manuals says

“The BeatBox, which also is a part of DigiPRO, offers a percussive tool- box shaped in the traditions of the Machine- drum E12 synth”

And wintage synth explorer says

“The E12 synth is a sample-playback synth using sounds from the E-mu SP1200 and Simmons electronic drum machines”


This is a good question, I’d like to know too. It just says 12 bit samples of carefully processed sounds… And since it’s digipro we can at least assume it’s digital. I’m not certain it’s FM though–what leads you to believe that’s the case?
