Distortion Stompbox For Your Monosynth

Elektron's Analog Drive features eight different analog distortion circuits      03/11/16

Elektron has announced Analog Drive, a 100% analog distortion stompbox featuring no less than eight different analog distortion circuits. They say that, designed to bring out the most of any guitar/amp combo or mono synthesizer, the sheer flexibility and engineering behind the analog distortion circuits makes it a powerhouse of a pedal.

Jonas Hillman, CEO of Elektron, told us, "Analog Drive represents something completely new. The eight different analog distortion circuits makes the Analog Drive the most flexible stompbox there is. And it sounds just beautiful. It is the perfect match for any guitar rig and does wonders for mono synthesizers and vintage drum machines too. There is nothing like it."

Here's the Analog Drive highlights in Elektron's won words...

Total analog distortion box

The sheer sonic range of the Analog Drive, courtesy of the eight different analog distortion circuits, is in itself a marvel. One stompbox harboring so many tone shaping opportunities: unheard of until now. Analog Drive is a bottomless well of new sounds.

The EQ touch
Enhance your amp with the 3 band analog EQ. The mid band is sweepable, which is very handy for dialing in the perfect EQ setting. The mid EQ can also be controlled with an expression pedal, making it easy to create analog wah-like sounds.

For the live rig
The possibility to store up to 100 user presets will make the live gig flow smoothly. And if you rely on MIDI during your performances, the Analog Drive delivers. All settings are fully controllable via MIDI and it can even send MIDI program change messages.
