  • Analog Rytm Sound pack: Total Tabla

    The Tabla is a set of musical drums, originally sprung from Indian classical music, thousands of years ago. With the Total Tabla Sound Pack, you get 123 distinct Tabla samples. You also get a custom made project, with kits, patterns and macros designed to show off the combined power of Tabla and Analog Rytm.

    The samples were recorded by the elusive Neybuu, who spent 10 years of intense training in India with one of the most prominent contemporary Tabla artists.

  • Elektron Jam Session 7: Yaybahar meets Elektrons

    Rarely does a completely new acoustic instrument get as recognized as the Yaybahar. Mere days after being published online, the video featuring musician/inventor Görkem Şen playing his creation had been seen by literally millions of viewers. There's a reason for this level of popularity. The Yaybahar sounds like nothing else. Strange and majestic. Part string instrument, part apocalyptic dream generator.

    When the Yaybahar is teamed up with Elektron machines two very similar worlds meet. One acoustic, one electronic - both of the progressive kind. The essence is the same, only the means are different. And the outcome defies categorization.
