Massive price reductions on Machinedrum and Monomachine


Our shelves contain too many Machinedrums and Monomachines. Simply put, we are a tad over-stocked. To remedy this we permanently lower the prices for these venerable machines.

Machinedrum UW*: 1099 EUR | 999 USD | Buy now!
Machinedrum: 699 EUR | 599 USD | Buy now!
Monomachine: 899 EUR | 799 USD | Buy now!

To put any doubts to rest it is important to stress that the price reduction is not because of any successors being on the horizon. Also, let us remember that the Machinedrum and Monomachine won’t be around forever.

This is a great time to lay our hands on a future classic.

Elektron Talk: Pepe Mogt


Pepe Mogt started the Art Collective known as Nortec (Northern techno) primarily as a countercultural necessity. The Mexico music scene was being flooded with mundane musical and cultural stereotypes, teeming with Latin musical clichés and narco romanticism. Something had to be done. He formed Mil records together with Bostich (Ramon Amescua) in 1999, and they have been the vanguard of the primordial, the experimental and the intertextual aspects of music ever since.

An art collective in its most genuine sense, Nortec nevertheless gets people exalted and dancing like few others. Pepe recently blew the roof off the Elektron Night of Machines in Tijuana, and he'll be gracing the stage once again in LA this weekend.

Features added in Overbridge 1.10 include:

  • Total Recall of all machine parameters from the DAW project

The new Overbridge version, in combination with the features introduced by OS 1.22, greatly enhances the depth of the DAW integration for the Analog range of machines, as well as their individual functionality.

Added features for Analog Keys/Four OS 1.22 include:

  • Sequencer note conditions. Probability, modulo, and fill modes etc.
  • Pitch-tracking LFO modes for FM-type sounds (also new modulation destinations for linear pitch modulation)
  • Free-running LFO modes, disconnected from BPM.


Added features for Analog Rytm OS 1.22 include:

  • Sequencer note conditions. Probability, modulo, and fill modes etc.
  • Free-running LFO modes, disconnected from BPM.


Take command, or be swept away, at liberty. Create the rules for your musical arrangement, as arbitrarily or deterministically as you choose, then bring it to life and watch it evolve.

Drum Enthusiast − new Sound Pack for free!

One for all, all for one. The Drum Enthusiast Sound Pack by Floppydisk Pirates is a multi platform Sound Pack, injecting the DNA of the Analog Keys/Four in instruments capable of sample playback.

The Drum Enthusiast Sound Pack consists of 64 percussion oriented sounds for the Analog Keys/Four. But there is more. These sounds have also been sampled, and the samples are included in the Sound Pack. Load them in the Analog Rytm/Octatrack/Machinedrum UW for the ultimate taste of exactly how raw, synthetic, and analog recorded samples can sound

  • Analog Four users wanting to sequence external analog gear with the dual CV/Gate outputs.
  • Octatrack users wanting to sample from consumer electronic devices featuring a 3.5mm headphone jack.
  • Modular users wanting a signal splitting solution essentially functioning as a 4 × output multiple module.

Elektron Talk: The Bug


Kevin Martin has a pretty solid track record when it comes to making gut-wrenching music. GOD, Techno Animal and Ice are just some of the bands he's started (together with Justin Broadrick, John Zorn and Blixa Bargeld, among others) since the early 90's.

Most recently, as the Bug, he has smashed a Jamaican sound system and industrial electronics in a particle collider - to a most exquisite, irresistible and derailing musical result. Words can't describe the frenzy, rush and alarm you experience when hearing the vocals of Cutty Ranks, Warrior Queen or Flowdan on top of his visceral beats.
