8-voice analog/digital drum machine with sampling capabilities.
A More Powerful Drum Machine
The Analog Rytm MKII pushes the limit of what is possible to achieve with a single machine. The eight analog drum voices take advantage of several dedicated analog circuit designs, each of them fine-tuned for generating a distinct class of analog drum sounds. For ultimate percussive flexibility, every voice can also be spiced up with customizable samples. The perfect unity of analog drum sounds and samples simply goes beyond.
Beats with Character
Plenty of tools are available for shaping the vibe of the beats. Affect every voice with its own analog multimode filter and analog overdrive circuit. To add shimmer and polish to the rhythms, the reverb and delay send FX will prove invaluable. And before the beats hit the sound system, the analog compressor and analog distortion of the master channel will ensure proper pump and grit. The sound of the Analog Rytm has no match.
The twelve back-lit, velocity and pressure sensitive drum pads offer beat smiths a quick and spontaneous way of creating rhythms. At the same time, the critically acclaimed Elektron step sequencer offers features like manipulating sounds on a per sequencer step basis. The combination of drum pads and step sequencing gives both instant results and the opportunity of detailed editing. The ultimate beat is just around the corner.
Seamless Integration with Overbridge
Overbridge 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 Rytm's parameters. Overbridge allows you to sync your Analog Rytm 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.
I.50 OS Update
The Analog Rytm MKI and MKII have leveled up! Boasting a substantial OS boost - 1.50 on the Rytm - this world-class machine is flexing its Elektron superpowers more impressively than ever before. Welcome to extra performance control, added sequencing potential, and increased machine power.
Sequencer MIDI Out
With Sequencer MIDI Out you can link up to the rest of your gear with ease. Control velocity, note and length on every step of the powerful Elektron sequencer, and breathe new life into old machines with conditional trigs. Say hello to one big, happy family of synths and drum machines.
Scale per Track
Coming fresh from the Digi line and by popular demand, Scale per Track is now on the Analog machines! Inject some extra unpredictability and excitement into your compositions.
Instantly randomize a parameter page to let the machine take charge. Access the unimagined with the press of a key, then revert back or go again.
