Elektron Talk: Antonio Tublén

The ideas Antonio Tublén explores in his soon-to-be classic science fiction feature film, LFO, are outrageous. Outrageous and unbelievable. But they are not so far-fetched as you might think. Without giving away the story, I can tell you this: Sound can be used to manipulate you.

Analog Rytm: Hardware of the Year

Analog Rytm has been graced with the prestigious Hardware of the Year award. Needless to say, we are incredibly happy and proud. And we would like to take the opportunity to thank the community of musicians. Without you we wouldn't be around.

What feels extra special is that this marks the second year in a row an Elektron product has gotten the award. In 2013 the Analog Four was deemed as the most prominent product of the year. Two products in two years. This makes us even more dedicated to our cause: creating rewarding, innovative, and magic instruments. Onwards!

Once you think you know or understand her sound, she’s already somewhere else. With her latest album, Chance of Rain, Laurel Halo reveals some of her most haunting, thought-provoking and original songs to date.

Reshaped Harmonics Sound pack for Analog Rytm

Imagine a new movement: relentless crypt clubbing. Twisted voices howling in the distance, metallic bass lines ripping through the air, a general sense of doom. Sound designer Nicholas Lem would then forever be known as the founding father of the movement. The Reshaped Harmonics Sound pack would be regarded as its origin. The rest would be history.
