OVERVIEW

Get an amazing range of distortion tones in one versatile pedal.

Analog Drive gives you eight analog distortion types in one box. It is the ideal pedal for guitarists who want to wreak havoc to signals and tones in the most diverse and characterful way possible.

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 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.

The eight circuits
Clean Boost – A boost ranging from 0 to 20 dB, run at a high internal voltage, thus giving plenty of headroom.

Mid Drive – Can be compared to the sound a well-known green stompbox. If more bass is needed, just increase the Low EQ setting.

Dirty Drive – Really dirty and swampy. A gate-ish feel can be obtained at low Gain settings. Higher Gain settings result in an old school fuzzy sound.

Big Dist – Adds quite a lot of distortion, but with an intact bass response. A reference would be a Marshall stack pushed to the max with a lot of power amp distortion.

Focused Dist – Strong focus on the upper mids. An extended version of the mythological horse/man pedal, but with more flexibility.

Harmonic Fuzz – Octave fuzz with a smooth feel. Based on a fuzz that is out of production. (Which one is a well-kept secret.)

High Gain – Clear sound with a lot of gain. Nice string separation, great sustain.

Thick Gain – Adds loads of gain, more than a lot of preamps. Really crispy when palm muting the lower strings and using the EQ to add some top end.

Best Uses

    Comments about Elektron Analog Drive Multi-Circuit Analog Distortion Unit Pedal:

    Having tried digital multiple gain pedals (yuck), I found the tone here very good. It took a bit of time to get the mix between gain and level, and then the low,mid,hi EQ (for each) preset I wanted to create, but after I did this, its great. I click the preset number and bam, I've got my gig ready tone. Had to play wtih it a bit to understand that "how to." But, it works! I am in a classic rock cover band, so I wanted to replace many other pedals, and it is working. Great Marshall sound (DS-1), usable Tube Screamer, and Klon. Not quite as happy with the fuzz, but usable. There is a "Thick" setting. It's pretty high gain. I would have preferred to ditch that and have a circuit that emulated a vintage Jimmy Page sound. Still, this is a good pedal. What it doesn't "nail", I can get close. This means I'm replacing 4 pedals with one.
