Discover: Elektron Tabletop Instruments

Analog synths, sequencers, samplers and drum machines

Designed, tested, and hand-assembled by makers interested in upending what musicians expect from their gear, Elektron instruments, quite simply, are made differently. From the distinctive analog drum dream machine Rytm, to the organic synthesis of an Analog Four, to the real-time sound sequencer and sample manipulator Octatrack, Elektron hardware has been road-tested and sculpted by natural-born performers of all stripes. Linking it all together is Elektron's line-blurring Overbridge software, which allows you to control their hardware instruments as virtual versions inside your recording software of choice. With Elektron, there's always more to reveal.

Elektron Analog Rytm Drum Machine

Tired of hearing the same sounds on every record? So is Elektron. Building on the legacy of their iconic Machinedrum, Elektron went one step further with the Analog Rytm. The Rytm blends an analog drum synthesizer with a powerful multi-functional sequencer. In doing so, the Rythm serves to provide a fantastic base from where you can sculpt your own drum sounds with completely analog shape controls. And for those ahead of the curve, import and layer your own digital samples to make drum kits that go beyond the expected. This blend of analog and digital makes the Rytm a unique beatmaking tool.

Elektron Analog Four Synthesizer

Think about it: how many analog synthesizers let you arrange a whole song, all on board the instrument? The Elektron Analog Four provides all the modular control and organic sound you expect from an analog synthesizer -- then adds something literally unheard of: an intuitive step sequencer that lets you instantly create new sounds, record a melody, and continue on with the next part of your composition, with up to 4 tracks. It even allows you to go back and alter notes, sounds, or add effects at whatever point you wish in the arrangement, on the fly. Add CV and Overbridge support, and you can imagine how much deeper the rabbit hole gets with the Analog Four. This 4-voice synthesizer is available as both a desktop synth module, and as the Elektron Analog Keys -- a 37-key keyboard model for only $100 more.

Elektron Octatrack Sampler/Sequencer

A sampler can do so much more than you think. Elektron's Octatrack reimagines the sampler as hub for live performance and sonic transformation. To get an idea of how powerful this machine is, consider how modern production software can slice, stretch or squeeze time or shift pitch on the fly. The Elektron Octatrack takes what makes sampling and loop-based software so interesting, and rolls it into a physical hardware device that does what software can't do: separate the music-production experience from the computer screen.

With one Elektron Octatrack, you get up to 8 audio and 8 MIDI tracks to dynamically build loops, patterns, and sequences. Record whole sessions (complete with automation and scenes) on the fly, live, or before for your next performance. The Octatrack isn't for the faint-hearted, but for those willing to go there, there are places only the Octatrack can go.

Swedish-made electronic instruments -- different by design

Göteborg, Sweden is known for a few things. Picturesque architecture and locales, cars your cool college teacher would drive, coffee (surprisingly enough!), some of the best amusement parks in the world, Melodifestivalen, and a wonderfully diverse music community are prized here. This mix of industrial and organic is what makes the Swedish music scene special. It’s no wonder Göteborg is the city Elektron has called home since 1998. And now, you can find Elektron instruments at zZounds.
