  • Analog Rytm: Hardware of the Year

    Analog Rytm has been graced with the prestigious Hardware of the Year award. Needless to say, we are incredibly happy and proud. And we would like to take the opportunity to thank the community of musicians. Without you we wouldn't be around.

    What feels extra special is that this marks the second year in a row an Elektron product has gotten the award. In 2013 the Analog Four was deemed as the most prominent product of the year. Two products in two years. This makes us even more dedicated to our cause: creating rewarding, innovative, and magic instruments. Onwards!
