Elektron's e25 Remix Editions

Introducing a time hack to disorient, reorient, and deliver you to bliss. In recognition of a quarter century of existence, Elektron dreamt up the e25 Remix Edition: a limited run of silver-faced units, spread across Digitakt, Digitone, and Syntakt. Inspired by yesteryear, and hell-bent on pulling your sounds through the veil of possibility and into reality.

The e25 Remix Editions don't just come with special versions of already unique music-making machines. Elektron included a number of other special additions to accompany your extra-special edition.

The instruments themselves are hand built in stainless steel, bearing laser-etched logos and unique number stamps. The box too is unique in its design and build, containing e25 poster versions, and a multiple decade-covering/greatest hits sticker sheet. And the e-shaped cherry on top is a special Remix Edition cassette tape featuring an hour of original and eclectic music from the Elektron Team.

Inside Syntakt

All your sound crafting, sequencing, and performance needs are fulfilled, in an all-round music mega box that fits in your lap. Syntakt is a drum specialist, full of percussive possibilities, but its four analog and eight digital tracks can be read more used for melody, harmony, and bass sounds too. Experience epic sounds from the past, pulling others into existence from the future.

The streets of Syntakt are never-ending, the neon lights are never-dimming, its underground is fathomless. Discover worlds within worlds. Adore now. Explore forever.

Meet the machines
There are 35 sound-generating machines to call on, covering a wide range of drum and melodic sounds. Some machines have been reimagined from Analog Rytm and Model:Cycles, with deeper sound control for the latter, while others are entirely new to the world.

For you to create and personalize your sound, Elektron made sure you've got a set of parameter controls tailor-made for each machine. They let you quickly tweak the nature of each type of sound, showing you just the relevant options. Comprehensive without being overwhelming. Let loose with analog or digital overdrive, depending on the tracks you're playing with.

The graphics more than play their part too, with plenty of animated icons offering visual guidance and extra clarity on how each parameter affects the sound. The joys of tweaking shouldn't only be for the ears after all.

Special effects
Syntakt lets you route any of your synth tracks or external audio sources through the FX block. This gives you analog distortion and filtering, and a couple of LFOs to go to town with. Additionally, you can also call on Delay and Reverb as powerhouse send effects.

And all of the above effects can be sequenced with the FX track. Have them kick in at just the right moment. Add accents and dramatic changes to the selected tracks or external audio. Or use it as a master track for ducking and gating effects.

Modify the moment
Wield a little extra trig craft using the four modifiers, offering four varied levels of expression. Configure the first two modifiers to give you the retrig or velocity behavior you desire, and use the other two to access custom intensities of other parameters. They're ready for action regardless of which synth track you're using.

And the best bit is that they don't just give you that extra playability fun in the here and now, you can also capture the moment by recording to the sequencer.

Deep sound-shaping
Syntakt comes full of filter and envelope goodness. All tracks have a Multimode filter to put to use allowing you to emphasize different parts of your sound, with the digital tracks also able to call on Parametric EQ and a Base-width filter - an additional filter giving you even more sonic control.

Choose from two amplitude envelope types to define the ideal contour of your sound. Try out the ADSR envelope - for your wicked synth lines - or the simpler AHD envelope - perfect for transient percussive sounds.

All synth tracks have two full-featured LFOs with multiple waveforms and modulation destinations. Set your sounds in motion, subtly or harshly, rocking the amplitude envelope, volume, filter, synth engine settings, even the other LFO; pretty much any parameter you like. Then redefine space and time with a slice of reverb and delay.

Let Song Mode sing
Song Mode is a feature that gives you the possibility to create, edit, and play compositions made up of dozens of your patterns. This makes it a hugely useful feature for all kinds of scenarios and for all kinds of artists.

Customize your backing track, leaving your hands free for other awesome gear. Extend beyond the limits of the 64-step sequencer. Create entire set-lists in a single song. And that's only scratching the surface of Song Mode's possibilities.

Superior Sequencing
The world class 64-step sequencer lets you bring dynamic soundscapes into existence by controlling both structure and sound to such a degree, it's like a musical instrument in itself. Simply holding any step and tweaking any parameter onto it is an ultra-fast and detailed way of sequencing, or go wild and record your escapades live.

Build your composition one tonal nuance at a time, or real-time record every twist and turn you make. Some call it Swedish sequencing. Elektron calls it parameter locking.

Sequencer Features:
- 64 steps per pattern and track
- Individual pattern length per track
- Individual time scale multiplier per track
- Parameter locks
- Trig conditions & trig chance
- Retrig
- Micro timing
