THIS IS OUR LEGACY OF MAGICAL HARDWARE MUSIC INSTRUMENTS
Our first product. The Sidstation was based on the legendary MOS6581 sound chip, originally found in the home computer Commodore 64. This gritty sounding synthesizer is the reason why Elektron as a company was formed in the first place.
The Machinedrum was a drum machine based on five original drum synthesis methods. With a razor sharp focus on percussion, it contained everything needed to create the perfect beat right out of the box. Iterations: Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII (2007)
The first Elektron keyboard synthesizer was limited to 500 units. The Monomachine keyboard featured the wondrous digital Monomachine synthesis methods as well as a unique design.
The Monomachine stood out. Five different synthesis methods plus sequencing guaranteed a sonic experience unlike anything heard. A digital and spectacular synthesizer. Iterations: Monomachine SFX60 MKII (2007) Monomachine SFX60+ MKII (2010)
The Machinedrum UW was a groundbreaking digital drum machine. It combined extremely flexible drum synthesis methods with a sampling engine. The powerful sequencer was the icing on the cake. Iterations: Machinedrum SPS-1UW MKII (2007) Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ MKII (2010)
The Octatrack was a dynamic performance sampler, featuring eight audio tracks capable of radical sample processing. The assignable crossfader took things even further, and added to the unique performance possibilities. Iterations: Octatrack MKII (2017)
The Analog Four represented the best of two worlds. Inimitable analog impact combined with razor-sharp digital accuracy. This was an analog synthesizer for the creative artist. Iterations: Analog Four MKII (2017)
The proud flagship of the original Elektron Analog product line. Its unique design and awe-inspiring sound captured the hearts of bands like Warpaint, MGMT and Mogwai. Based on the Analog Four sound engine and architecture. In terms of versatility, variety and power no other synth could even come close.
With its ability to layer both samples and analog synthesized sounds, great performance controls and the galactic-class Elektron sequencer, it’s no wonder this machine was informally regarded the best drum machine ever soon after release. It won a smattering of awards, too. Iterations: Analog Rytm MKII (2017)
An eight-in-one stereo analog effects unit. This convenient and easy-to-use gizmo lets you choose one of eight general effects (subtle enhancement, saturation, fuzz, distortion, high gain et cetera) then customize the sound further through a kick-ass multimode filter, LFO, envelope and EQ. Iterations: Analog Heat MKII (2018)
Ultimate distortion stompbox with eight analog circuits bristling at your toe tips. The ideal pedal for musicians who want to wreak havoc to signals and tones in the most diverse and characterful way possible.
