OVERVIEW

Compact 37-key analog synthesizer with four voices.

Analog Keys is Elektron's flagship analog synthesizer with digital controls, and unprecedented playability making it the ultimate instrument for the expressive musician. The Analog Keys is a four voice polyphonic analog synthesizer, capable of generating some of the finest basslines, chords, leads, and sounds imaginable. The warm and deep tone represents the pinnacle of analog synthesis and the acclaimed Elektron sequencer stands ready to arrange and warp the analog sounds in real-time. Complete the experience by treating the four voices with incredibly well-crafted master effects. A new world of sounds awaits.

New functionality with Overbridge
Overbridge is a new function that has been added to several Elektron analog instruments, including Analog Keys. It unites your hardware and your software via a USB connection with unprecedented seamlessness and organizes your workflow into a simple, easy-to-use graphical interface that displays all of your Analog Keys's parameters. Overbridge allows you to sync your Analog Keys to your VST/AU-compatible DAW, enables bi-directional multi-track audio streaming, provides editing and automation mapping via the Overbridge plug-ins, and offers an organizational scheme for sounds and samples.

Design sounds using Overbridge' dedicated plug-in, or control parameters via the knobs on your Analog Keys. Exploit the attributes of your Elektron sequencer within your DAW sequencer, tweak sounds on your Analog Keys via the Overbridge GUI and transport them to live performances in the instrument. It's a whole new world of sound design, sequencing and production functionality that sets Elektron apart.

Performance optimized
The Analog Keys is tailor-made for the stage. The 37 semi-weighted keys of the keyboard give instant fingertip control of the analog tones. The special performance mode offers direct access to user-defined parameters, and the joystick, capable of controlling up to fifteen parameters, allows for extreme morphing of sounds. Improvising when playing live has never been this easy.

Heart of the rig
Compatibility with other instruments is well catered for. Simply press a button to transform the Analog Keys into a MIDI keyboard, ready to control external MIDI gear. Thanks to the dedicated CV sequencer and the CV/Gate and DIN sync outputs, analog instruments of both today and yesteryear can be played, sequenced, and controlled with precision. Use the multitude of control options to breathe new life in vintage and modern rigs alike.

Comments about Elektron Analog Keys 4-Voice Synthesizer:

This is the most interactive synth I've ever used. It is a pleasure to program for this thing. Making changes to the sound is a breeze, but be sure to save your kits and patterns often. It will save you alot of headache to get into that habit from the very start.

Once you get past the dense front panel and learn to use this thing as it is intended, you will never look at hardware sequencers the same again. The system here is brilliant in its simplicity of use, but seems overwhelming at first because there are SO MANY options.

The keybed feels great. Reminds me of the keybeds on many roland synths and their cakewalk midi controllers. The joystick is very smooth and can be heavily customized in terms of how it mangles your sound. The frame is solid metal so it has some weight to it.

Four voices doesn't seem like alot, but if you are creative, you can essentially use this machine as a standalone groovebox. I've seen people pull it off on youtube.

This is my favorite synth that I've ever owned. It is a sound design powerhouse.
