A one hour live performance with Analog Rytm, Analog Four, Analog Keys and Octatrack.
This is my first attempt at performing live with the Elektron boxes for an audience. It was at a friends party inside a very nice smiths workshop (perfect industrial setting!). Almost everything that is played is new material that I prepared for this night. I will try to record some of the top tracks into a new EP soon.
All synths sounds played by Analog Four/Keys, all drums played by Analog Rytm (except for some layered loops here and there). The Octatrack does the mixing and acts as a loop-recorder for all the cross-fades and transitions.
Too little practice equals many mistakes, but its worth the fun when some of the mistakes turn out to be happy mistakes =)

Thought I put up a little retro 80’s type sound then the usual stuff on these machines. Enjoy! Connect with me on Soundcloud:https://soundcloud.com/freqknob
No audio processing in daw what so ever, just straight record.

This is a complex network of 2 eurorack synth cases, a micro brute being clocked by the Elektron MACHINEDRUM.
The Machinedrum is supplying 2 clocks to the modular with the gnd-imp machine.
Elektron has released Analog Rytm OS 1.01, and update that introduces two new machines. BDFM (Bass drum FM) and SDFM (Snare drum FM) are based on linear FM synthesis and give the Analog Rytm with new sonic possibilities.
OS 1.01 introduces two new machines. BDFM (Bass drum FM) and SDFM (Snare drum FM) are based on linear FM synthesis and endow the Analog Rytm with even more sonic possibilities. Other improvements brought by OS 1.01 include more copy/paste options and several usability tweaks. For a full list of changes, see the documentation included with the upgrade zip-file.

Pricing & Availability
Analog Rytm can be purchased in the Elektron Online Shop or from your favorite Elektron dealer. It costs $1549 / €1489 / £1249 / ¥174900. The demand is high and initial supplies are limited, so please note that it will be sold on a first come, first served basis – and that early orders might take a few days extra to process and ship.
Overbridge, the technology that erases the line between analog hardware and software plug-in instruments and makes it possible to seamlessly integrate the Analog Rytm in a DAW environment will be a part of a free OS update expected to be released Q4 2014.
Synthesis and Samples are used in this demo. Wanted to focus on the Performance Mode during this composition. This mode allows you to assign parameters from any tracks to the pads and manipulate them with pressure!
Elektron has released full specs on the new Analog Rytm, its new drum machine.
Eight analog drum voices take advantage of several dedicated analog circuit designs, each of them tuned for generating a distinct class of analog drum sounds. For percussive flexibility, every voice can also be ‘spiced up’ with customizable samples.

Analog Rytm, the analog drum machine from Elektron, is just around the corner. Now the full specifications- and the first proper audio demos – have been published online. Elektron describes Analog Rytm as an 8 voice analog drum machine with sample support. The analog circuits and the sample engine are ingeniously handled by clever software. Drum pads and an Elektron sequencer provide maximized playability. Here’s some details in Elektron’s own words…
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 goes beyond.
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.
Pricing: $1549 / 1489 Euro /£1249
