It began in 1998. In Gothenburg, the Swedish west coast city, characterised by its shipyards, docks and rusty harbor cranes, came to be the home of Elektron. And just like Elektron is a part of the city, the city is a part of Elektron. For us, the rugged industrial surroundings, the hint of stubborn outsiderness sometimes experienced while riding the tram resonate in our instruments.
But in a sense this is irrelevant. When you come into contact with an Elektron instrument, your particular sound emerges. This is what matters. Designed to the highest standards, assembled by hand and tested exhaustively before being sent out worldwide: our offerings help producers, artists and DJs both well-known and underground to perfect their craft.
And it’s not just the hardware. Outside of the machines, the award-winning Overbridge software suite fully integrates compatible Elektron instruments with computers – efficiently and intuitively.
At the end of the day we simply want to empower you through extraordinary sound. Make music a natural part of your life. To achieve this we will continue to innovate and push technological boundaries. We will continue to think new.
Looking ahead, we can confidently say that this is only the beginning.
