the analog rytm is a one stop solution beat machine. distinguished by the power of analog drum sounds fused with samples. perfected by the immediacy of drum pads coupled with elektron sequencing.
a more powerful drum machine
the analog rytm 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
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.
true analog punch
create analog beats feeling confident that the underlying technology is being used to its fullest potential. the depth of the kick drums, the bite of the snare drums, and the airy shimmer of the hihats are made
possible by analog circuits meticulously developed with the ambition of providing nothing but stellar results. the analog rytm sounds, simply put, brilliantly deep.
the power of machines
a machine is a set of carefully selected software sound parameters accessing various parts of the analog circuitry. the purpose of each machine is to enable the creation of a specific type of analog drum sound,
and as several machines exist, a wide variety of sounds are just waiting to be discovered. have you ever felt the power of an incredible sounding analog fm kick?
a raised voice
to call the eight drum voices feature heavy would be an understatement. each voice contains analog sound generation, a sample playback engine, an analog overdrive unit, an analog multimode filter, an amplitude
envelope, effect sends, and an lfo. when combining all the individual blocks that form a voice, and then combining all the voices, impressive things are bound to happen.
creativity through samples
the sample playback capability adds to the hybrid nature of the analog rytm. fill the sample storage to the brim with user samples and use the ingenious sample engine to tweak them beyond recognition. then layer
the outcome with the analog drum sounds for total percussive bliss. samples have never been used as cleverly as this.
the lightning fast digital control system enables features that previously have been impossible in the realm of analog drum synthesis. change drum sounds, parameter settings, and even machines per sequencer step
and with no audible lag. the instant digital control over analog circuits takes the notion of drum machines one step further.
the lush and dense reverb and delay send effects of the analog rytm are of the utmost quality. they endow beats with a full and luxurious character. then there are the master effects. the stereo analog
distortion unit and stereo compressor squeezes, grinds, and destroys audio either subtly or totally. the send and master effects are the ideal tools for wrapping up a beat.
pad to the bone
grooves with a human feel are but a few strikes away. the twelve velocity, pressure sensitive, back-lit, and wonderfully responsive pads are the direct link between the concept and the execution of a really good
beat. their ability to display different colors gives visual indication of which modes are active and the functionality being used. the pads bring results and clarity.
the elektron sequencer
the elektron step sequencer gives full control over all aspects of the beat making process. use sequencer features like parameter locks, micro timing, retrigs, accent, swing, slide, and variable step length per
track to create hard-hitting or smooth-sounding beats with ease. be it on stage or in the studio, the elektron sequencer is a highly creative tool.
select a mode
the ways to affect beats and drum sounds are many. scene mode makes it possible to instantly alter parameters by simply hitting a pad. chromatic mode opens up for chromatically playing and recording individual
sounds to the sequencer. performance mode allows each pad to gradually control multiple parameters. the modes make for a proper live machine.
individual outputs for each voice plus a main output pair are godsends when mixing. the external input allows incoming sounds to be processed by the master compressor. a usb port and midi ports capable of
sending din sync means the analog rytm can communicate with everything from legacy instruments to computers. there is always a connection to be made.
room for more
there is no risk of running out of storage. the +drive of the analog rytm allows thousands of patterns, kits, and taggable drum sounds to be saved internally. for sample aficionados, 1 gb of +drive sample
storage will provide the necessary space for an abundance of user drum samples. this is one vast machine.
