Elektron Analog Four : Tutorial by 7-year-old, creating Photographic by Depeche Mode

September 29, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

A tutorial on how to use the Elektron Analog 4 and using it to program “Photographic” by Depeche Mode – from the perspective of a seven-year-old kid. In Swedish, filmed in one go. English subtitles are available as well.
00:00:00 Introduction, overview of main functions
00:02:17 Sound selection
00:02:20 Track 1 – Lead
00:02:44 Track 2 – Kick
00:03:04 Track 3 – Bass
00:03:20 Track 4 – Secondary melody
00:03:38 Programming “Photographic”
00:03:34 Track 1
00:05:40 Track 2
00:05:59 Track 3
00:07:19 Track 4
00:08:13 Track 4, again
00:09:05 Song complete!

My 7-year old son started to learn my Elekron Analog Four, and actually got pretty good at it. Since he loves “Photographic” by Depeche Mode (and had been playing it on the piano) he taught himself to program it into the A4.

One day I thought I should just capture what he’s doing on video to keep as a memory, and a the same time learn a two-cam setup. This is the result – all filmed in one go. There are English subtitles available in the video as well.
