Elektron Reveals Details Of Analog Rytm

See the specs and hear the demos of the new 8 voice analog drum machine   31-Mar-14

Analog Rytm, the analog drum machine from Elektron, is just around the corner. Now the full specifications - and the first proper audio demos - have been published online. Elektron describes Analog Rytm as an 8 voice analog drum machine with sample support. The analog circuits and the sample engine are ingeniously handled by clever software. Drum pads and an Elektron sequencer provide maximized playability. Here's some details in Elektron's own words...

A more powerful drum machine
The Analog Rytm pushes the limit of what is possible to achieve with a single machine. The eight analog drum voices take advantage of several dedicated analog circuit designs, each of them fine-tuned for generating a distinct class of analog drum sounds. For ultimate percussive flexibility, every voice can also be spiced up with customizable samples. The perfect unity of analog drum sounds and samples simply goes beyond.

Beats with character
Plenty of tools are available for shaping the vibe of the beats. Affect every voice with its own analog multimode filter and analog overdrive circuit. To add shimmer and polish to the rhythms, the reverb and delay send FX will prove invaluable. And before the beats hit the sound system, the analog compressor and analog distortion of the master channel will ensure proper pump and grit. The sound of the Analog Rytm has no match.

Maximized playability
The twelve back-lit, velocity and pressure sensitive drum pads offer beat smiths a quick and spontaneous way of creating rhythms. At the same time, the critically acclaimed Elektron step sequencer offers features like manipulating sounds on a per sequencer step basis. The combination of drum pads and step sequencing gives both instant results and the opportunity of detailed editing. The ultimate beat is just around the corner.

Just a minor gripe, the display is so 1998 why can't they put a nice one in like the Teenage engineering OP-1 or Prophet 12.For $1550.00 I would expect a little more.
