Introducing Analog Four & Analog Rytm MKII


#1
**We're excited to introduce Analog Four MKII and Analog Rytm MKII. They are the successors to the analog synthesizer Analog Four and the analog drum machine Analog Rytm. The MKII versions are improved in many areas and offer several new features and upgrades.** Analog Four MKII is a four voice analog tabletop synthesizer. The sequencer gives total access to all aspects of the active sounds and the four CV/Gate outputs mean external gear can be controlled as well. The analog circuitry of Analog Four MKII has been thoroughly reworked and provides deep, clear and defined bass plus a more prominent analog overdrive/distortion effect. Integrating the Analog Four MKII with external gear and computers is easy thanks to dedicated audio outputs for each voice, two expression/CV inputs, and high bandwidth Overbridge. The aluminium enclosure, the durable back-lit buttons, the big OLED screen, the hi-res encoders and the dedicated quick performance controls are other notable enhancements. They make the workflow quicker and more efficient. The total Analog Four MKII package is very complete, and offers an experience as close to sublime you can get. Analog Rytm MKII is an 8 voice analog drum machine and sampler. By combining analog drum synthesis with a digital sample engine and a sequencer, it offers vast beat sound design possibilities. Sampling with the Analog Rytm MKII is quick and effortless and perfect for adding a customized touch to any beat. General playability is stellar thanks to the large pads, the generous amount of dedicated buttons and the quick performance controls. High bandwidth Overbridge and two expression/CV inputs for external control further strengthen the Analog Rytm MKII case. The feel and look of the unit itself is stunning, thanks to the cast aluminium enclosure, the back-lit buttons, the hi-res encoders and the big OLED screen. All in all, the Analog Rytm MKII represents a major leap when it comes to beat making instruments. **What's new in Analog Four MKII?** Reworked analog circuitry delivering very deep and defined bass Enhanced analog overdrive for more bite and growl Crisp, large OLED screen providing optimal feedback in dimly lit environments Ultra durable back-lit buttons.

Whoa…


Rumor: A4 MKII incoming
#4

well here we go

“Error establishing a database connection”

Are the Rytm pads improved?


#6

Still looking at the old box images on the main site. :nej:


#7

Elektron Kardashian breaking the internet


#8

Want to see what they look like! :slight_smile:


#9

So this new RYTM can sample??? God damn!!!


#10

omg Rytm is now a sampler!
also CV inputs for both… game over! :heart_eyes:


#11

omg


#12

Need a sound demo of the A42…is it really better?


#13

SAMPLING! SAMPLING! SAMPLING! They really added sampling!


#14

My AR/A4 and my piggy bank are huddling together shivering and shaking. Despite the price hike that AR MK II looks like the one drum machine to rule them all. I’ll be able to resist A4 MK II by the looks of it.


#15

Hadn’t seen this coming so soon, but had assumed it was. Just bought a MKi A4 for the bargain price from Juno. Not sure whether to return it and upgrade.

New form factor is cool. No good for people who like tiered stands though.


#16

First thing that came to my mind.


#17

Can anyone post pics to this thread? elektron.se is under a heavy load right now

mk II trinity came sooner than I hoped… How to finance it all AAAAARGH
