Elektron Talk: Nosaj Thing


Since high and far-off times, minstrels have tried to capture their audience using various shock and awe methods. The highest clank, crash, hoot or whistle. In modern-day Los Angeles, that's truer than ever. But lo, here is an artist of that rare disposition that he doesn't need to push all the envelopes to steal the attention of his listeners.

Sound packs for Analog Keys/Four and Monomachine


Christmas comes early for Analog Keys/Four and Monomachine operators.



The Low Register Sound pack, conceived by Biologik for Analog Keys/Four, consists of 160 patches squarely situated in the lower frequency regions. Bass aficionados, rejoice!



For Monomachine, there's the Immortal Waves Sound pack. It contains 64 user waveforms derived from a Minimoog Model D, plus 16 patters and 16 kits demonstrating the power of the Monomachine sound engine. Audio demos available on SoundCloud. User waveforms assembled by Radek Rudnicki.

Get both Sound packs in the Elektron Support & Downloads section.

Elektron Talk: Frank Bretschneider


The Italian concept of sprezzatura has dominated the fashion world for a decade or so. It means, literally, nonchalance. Planned carelessness. A hint of unruly hair, imperfectly tucked shirt, and tie - if any - askew are a few of its attributes. Frank Bretschneider's work is the polar opposite of sprezzatura. There is no way that you can cosmetically hide that carefully planned effort has gone into every single composition.

Winning streak


Hot on the heels of the Analog Rytm receiving the Future Music Hardware of Year award, our latest creation just got recognized again. The Analog Rytm can now pride itself on having received the Electronic Musician Editor's Choice 2015 award. Two major awards in two weeks. We are incredibly happy and grateful!
