Back and better than ever, the Analog Rytm MkII is Elektron's flagship drum machine, combining eight tracks of powerful analog percussion synthesis with sampling plus unmatched sequencing capabilities—and now it's dressed up in an alluring black package. Quite possibly the most feature-packed drum machine on the market, the Analog Rytm also sports built-in delay, reverb, distortion, and compression effects, and offers abundant flexibility in sound and pattern management. Add in class-compliant USB audio and MIDI functionality plus support for Elektron's Overbridge software, and you have an endlessly flexible instrument suited for use both on the stage and in the studio.
Though the Analog Rytm has eight voices, there are actually 12 drum tracks to work with at once, with certain elements paired into choke groups as seen on other drum machines, such as the open and closed hi-hats. All tracks combine the best of both analog and digital worlds, resulting in highly flexible sound circuits to be explored. To make the sound design process more immediate on the analog side, the Analog Rytm presents track modes in archetypes known as Machines, with each offering certain parameterizations that aim to lead you towards specific sounds. Many of these are built with specific purposes in mind, like BD Hard and SD Natural, but others like the Noise Generator and Dual VCO are more general-purpose Machines to be used in crafting textures, melodic or bass lines, and more.
