Elektron has announced the release of the VHS Crosstalk Sound Pack for Analog Rytm.
The pack contains a variety of bleeding, interfering and harrowingly magnetic sounds from the VHS era. All samples were processed and mastered on 1/2-inch magnetic tape using home VHS recorder equipment.
VHS Crosstalk contains a selection of samples, optimized for use on the Analog Rytm (though the samples will also work on an Octatrack or a Machinedrum UW). The bundle also includes a custom Analog Rytm project featuring patterns, kits and live-friendly scene and performance macros. All content has been created by Virtual Flannel and Elektron.
VHS Crosstalk features
- 1 Project.
- 16 Patterns.
- 16 Kits (featuring scene and performance macros).
- 100 samples (16 bit / 48 kHz / mono).
- Total sample size: 36,1 MB.
- Including: 10 bass, 4 Tape recordings, 7 claps, 2 cymbals, 5 fx, 6 hihats, 14 kicks, 5 percussion, 2 Rhodes, 1 Rimshot, 3 Snares and 41 synths.
The sound pack is available for purchase for 15 EUR.

First touch with CLOUDS. Stunning what comes out of a simple drum pattern from ELEKTRON ANALOG RYTM processed by CLOUDS… Some modulations + filter…

Background video description:
This is my remix of the very sentimental song “Toi Et Moi” written by my favorite French singer – Kenza Farah.
The remix was created using hardware synthesizer and sampler – Elektron Analog Four + Elektron Octatrack DPS-1. No software was used for remix creation, performance and recording. Yes, these Swedish Elektron machines can be used for creating the complete pop-music composition
This is a short description of how it’s been made. During the composition only 15 patterns are used. Octatrack & Analog Four are synced for pattern changes. Octatrack is in Arranger Mode (automatically switches patterns for me).
A. Elektron Octatrack (15 patterns, 6 scenes):
TR1: Kick + Clap / One Shot Samples, FX – Filter+Dark Verb
TR3: Sliced Loop (different slices&locks per step, linear slice locks function was used for cutting and rearranging the drum loop)
TR4: Pad (loop)
TR5: “Toi Et Moi” original track (Piano+Vocal only), stretched by Octatrack to 95 bpm.
TR6: FX slices from original track + Periodical Additional Melodic/Reversed Loops + Crash (Crash is programmed with one shot triggers, activated by Function+YES during performance)
TR7: Additional loop – Acoutic Drums & Breaks Loops
TR8: Master Track (FX1 – Filter, FX2 – compressor in parallel, mix 50/50)
B. Elektron Analog Four (15 patterns):
TR1: Pluck Lead
TR2: Arp/Pluck Lead
+ 3 performance mode settings (A: TR1+TR2 filter opening/closing, B: TR3 filter opening + decay time, C: TR4 – Filter Opening+Reverb Send Amount)
Original track is from Kenza Farah’s album Authentik.
Thank you, Kenza, for the inspiration and great song!
Lots of Respect from Moscow, Russia. 😉

The Synchrotron Sound Pack consists of 100% royalty free sounds, ranging from ‘modularesque’ leads to ‘staticky drums’.
‘Like the massively ambitious plasma experiment that lends the pack its name,’ notes Elektron, ‘these sounds inspire further tweakage and experimentation of your own!

Check Out = “ORACLE”:
When tools and gadgets finally retire, after a long and productive life of chore and utility, a few lucky ones may enjoy a second spell of virtue as musical instruments. The classic one-piece Estwing hammer, for instance, was originally designed to produce a pitch perfect tone when struck straight-on-the-nail. Handle worn off, face dented and shaft rusted, it would still serve its sonic purpose. A good sound can never die. What is trash to the eye may be a treat to the ear. Enjoy.
The Junkyard Sound Pack contains a selection of samples created by Loopmasters, optimized for use on the Analog Rytm. The bundle also includes a custom Analog Rytm project featuring patterns, kits and live-friendly scene and performance macros. The samples (but not the patterns, kits and macros) may also be used on the Octatrack and the Machinedrum UW.
