Elektron Premiers Analog Rytm – 8-Voice Analog Drum Machine
Elektron has announced Analog Rytm, an eight-voice analog drum machine with sample support. The Analog Rytm claims to push 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 specific analog drum sounds. For percussive flexibility, every voice can also be spiced up with customizable samples.
The sample engine allows every voice to be spiced up with customizable and highly bendable samples, which can be layered with the analog drum sounds. Plenty of tools are available for shaping the vibe of the beats. The parameters controlling the analog circuits and the sample engine can push rhythms to extremes. The special warmth and rawness of the Analog Rytm are courtesy of the analog multimode filter and analog distortion circuit of each voice. The FX send section, comprised of a reverb and a delay, adds polish and shimmer to the beats-and before they hit the sound system, the analog compressor and analog distortion of the master channel will ensure their proper pump and grit.
