NAMM 2015: Elektron Overbridge Progess

NAMM 2015: Elektron Ovwerbridge Progess Audio routing and a sneak of the UI for the editor

Elektron’s Overbridge was announced last year, its a technology that allows Elektron instruments – Analog Four, Analog Rytm and Analog Keys to feed their audio and MIDI over USB and into a host plugin that will run inside the host DAW and route discrete inputs and outputs.

Addtionally MIDI can be routed and more interestingly given the complexity of these instruments, an editor to access the voice and setup parameters for each instrument – this would certainly make the editing process more pleasurable – one of my criticisms was that the screen is just too small to see enough detail for serious editing and my tired eyes.

Cenk (aka Dataline) gives us the headsup on where the Overbridge technology is, the seamless integration of audio streams in and out of the DAW is impressive.

Elektron Monomachine Demo

December 27, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

This video demonstrates the sound of the Elektron Monomachine! Enjoy!

Product description:

The Monomachine SFX-60+ MKII is the ultimate sound generator. Five different synthesis methods plus sequencing make it the mixed martial artist of synthesizers.

Each of the six Monomachine tracks is loaded with sound shaping devices. At your command is a tape style delay, a resonant multi mode filter, a sample rate reducer, a distortion effect, an arpeggiator and no less than three LFO’s – per track. The sound palette is limitless.

Despite the depth of the Monomachine it is very easy to use. Every parameter is close at hand and no confusing menus are in your way. Everything is laid out in a logical and usable manner. This is particularly useful when you perform live and don’t want to press the wrong buttons.

A special MIDI mode gives you control of six dedicated MIDI tracks. Use the versatile arpeggiators and all the other special sequencer features to take MIDI sequencing to the next level. The Monomachine is a given centre piece in any studio.

You can upload your own customized waveforms and use them in the Monomachine environment. This, plus the ability to treat sound incoming through the two external inputs using the special FX machines, makes the Monomachine a sound designer’s dream come true.

The Monomachine SFX-60+ MKII comes equipped with a +Drive by default. With a +Drive there is no risk of running out of storage space. Over 16’000 patterns, 16’000 kits and 8’000 waveforms can be internally stored.

Man and machine have never been closer to each other.

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

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.

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.
