Here is a demo Jordan Passmore recorded of the Elektron Analog Four, Native Instruments Maschine MK2, and Arturia Minibrute. The A4 is doing the bassline and main melody, the Minibrute is doing the filtered clicks and Maschine is doing the drums. The Minibrute is being ran through a phaser, analog delay, analog chorus, then finally through the A4. The A4 is only affecting the gating (VCA trig) of the passed thru audio.
Some evening fun with the new Richard Divine soundpack for the Elektron Analog Four. As you can see, Chris also used a MeeBlip, a small modular, and the Maschine. All sequencing done on the Maschine and Analog Four.

128 experimental, haunting and outright bizarre Analog Four Sounds. Created by sound designer Richard Devine.
“I wanted to create a collection of abstract sounds that took advantage of the Analog Four’s extensive modulation capabilities. I hope these sounds inspire new ideas and offer some interesting starting points for a song.” — Richard Devine
This demo is of the Elektron Analog Four, a four voice analog synthesizer/sequencer and the Roland TR-707 drum machine. The Elektron is doing all the tones here and of course, the 707 is playing the drums. In terms of effects, there is a slight bit of analog delay and chorus on the 707′s snare. Otherwise, all effects used are the ones built into the Elektron (it’s reverb and delay were used on this project). The mixer is an Alto AMX-220. The master of that was then sent to an Electra EQ, then finally to my soundcard. No post-processing, compression, etc was used.
Jordan Passmore says: I am having lots of fun with the Analog Four. It excels very well as modulated and filtered textures. It sounds very different than other analog synths I have owned in the past and the sequencer is (of course) fantastic. All tones here were programmed by me.
We’ve been hearing a lot about Elektron’s new analog four voice. From the stylish but somewhat obscure introduction movie which piqued our interest, to the sound audition pieces coming online as people get hold of their very own units.
The Analog Four is a new type of instrument from Elektron as it has 100% analog VCOs and Filters which are digitally controlled. Their Machine Drum and MonoMachine have been Virtual Analog and sample based.
Elektron came over from their Gothenburg HQ to give us a closeup look at the Analog Four.
Jon is the product manager and is doing the talking, Jenk the guy making all the sounds.
No apologies for the length of the video, its just that there seemed to be so many things to talk about. Also this is intended to be a discussion about the features of the instrument, there are many other videos available that are just audio demos – check them out.
The Elektron Analog Four is available now via selected retailers and direct from the Elektron Website.
“Slow-paced techno with lots of dirt and grit, thanks to the overdriven analog filter through which the drums are routed. Camera stopped recording beyond 10mins, but went on jamming anyway.”

Here’s a brand new video from Elektron showing off their new analog beast

The Analog Four is a four voice analog synthesizer. Analog oscillators and filters ensure the most organic sounds imaginable and the Elektron step sequencer caters for the innovative sound control. With sequencer features like parameter locks and variable length per track, intricate Analog Four compositions can be created quickly and efficiently. Add the completely new and incredibly well-crafted effects to the mix and experience the next chapter in analog sounds. It just sounds right.
Not only a splendid sound making device, the Analog Four can also make other gear sing. Thanks to the CV/Gate and DIN sync outputs, legacy analog gear can be controlled in great detail. Sequencer features like arpeggiators and parameter locks will breathe new life in old equipment and make any modular synthesizer rig truly come alive.
Live performance features are aplenty. The special performance mode gives direct access to user-defined parameters and direct pattern change makes it possible to change patterns at any sequencer step. The arpeggiator can be instantly toggled on or off for swirling melody lines. Improvising when playing live has never been this easy. The Analog Four was born for the stage.
All 4 tracks have been sequenced inside the new Elektron Analog Four. I wanted to show various parameters for Filters, Oscillators and ‘how it sounds’ while playing this composition. There is no external processing, everything you hear is from the Analog Four.
