Swedish musical instrument company Elektron today announced major firmware updates for the MKI and MKII models of their analog synthesizer, the Analog Four, and their analog drum machine, the Analog Rytm. OS 1.40 on the Analog Four and 1.50 on the Rytm lets this world-class duo flex its Elektron superpowers more impressively than ever before. Extra performance control, added sequencing potential, and increased machine power are just the tip of this Analog iceberg. The perfect opportunity to dive in if you’ve been considering either machine.
Sequencer MIDI Out
With Sequencer MIDI Out you can link up to the rest of your gear with ease. Control velocity, note, and length on every step of the powerful Elektron sequencer, and breathe new life into old machines with conditional trigs. Say hello to one big, happy family of synths and drum machines.
Scale per Track
Coming fresh from our summer upgrades for Digitakt and Digitone and by popular demand, Scale per Track is now on the Analog machines! Inject some extra unpredictability and excitement into your compositions.
Instantly randomize a parameter page to let the machine take charge. Access the unimagined with the press of a key, then revert back or go again.
Multiple Quick Performance Control
Assign multiple performance macros to the lone, all-conquering Quick Performance Control. One knob to rule them all.
New graphics have been added to make your machine navigation easier and more enjoyable.
