Elektron has launched the new-look Analog Four MKII and Analog Rytm MKII. This is what they have to say about them...
The Analog Four MKII and Analog Rytm MKII have both been updated with an eye-catching new aesthetic, giving the sturdy enclosure a sleek black finish and a fresh back-lit color palette to complement the user interface.
In addition to the new look for the two machines, their factory content has been updated with some exceptional new slices to get you started. The likes of Eraldo Bernocchi, Lucifer's Aid, Spit Mask, and (d) glitched, as well as the dedicated Elektron team from across the globe, have collected a fresh bank of patterns and kits to tap into - giving you access to a variety of awesome audio straight out of the box.
Analog Four MKII is a four voice polyphonic analog tabletop synthesizer that lets you immerse yourself in countless sonic possibilities. Organic, steely, warm, cold, chaotic, exact, and all the shades in between. Vocalize and mold your own basses, leads, drums, and whatever other abnormal noises can be dreamt up. Make them as glistening and airy or dark and dense as you desire. With sounds as vast as the most infinite of palettes, entire tracks can be created from scratch. The four CV/Gate outputs mean external gear can be controlled as well. A digital mind and analog soul. This machine fuses together the best of both worlds.
Analog Rytm MKII is an eight voice analog drum machine and sampler full of countless possibilities and infinite destinations. Feel the depth of booming kick drums, the snarling bite of snares, the bellow of cavernous toms, and the airy shimmer of hi-hats. Fine-tune or maul the analog sounds to your liking, then access ultimate creative versatility by layering samples on top for something uniquely yours. Release them all using the twelve velocity-sensitive pads. Make your fused beats as smooth, as rough, as realistic, or as fantastic as you'd like. A one-stop solution beat machine.
