A solid feature packed analogue drum machine with pads.
The Analog Rytm is another well conceived instrument from Elektron. I have only had it a short time but so far I am finding that it really does pack a punch. With 8 analogue voices that are optimised for drum sounds and the ability to upload samples of any type along with a range of effects and processing the possibilities are only as small as your imagination. Depressing when the lowest common denominator is your own ability!
Some really cool performance controls using aftertouch on the pads and scene mode helps you easily create variations.
One of my favourite features of the black series of Elektron machines is their sequencer. I love how it allows you to get into micro timing of patterns which on the Rytm can get some wonky beats flowing. This intricacy is something you miss on the machine drum when you go back to it.
This is yet another deep instrument that is hard to review concisely! Worth trying one out if you can.
Best sounding drum box and tons of fun
The Analog Rytm is tons of fun! Combines analog oscilators (called machines) and user samples, runs them through an analog synth engine and has deep integration with it's step sequencer. This thing starts spitting out some excellent sound and rythms. Add in some real-time control through the scenes/performances etc...
Obviously there are some cons: e.g. not all analog machines sound as good as they could, dumping samples into the AR could have been easier, pads are not as playable as MPC pads. And I truly hope that they (or a 3rd party) will fix it one day. But nevertheless these are just minor issues.
The bottom line is: This is the best sounding drum box ever and tons of fun! Expensive but worth every penny...
Most awesome drum-machine I know so far.
This was the drum-synth I was not sure if I should buy it and in the end I was using it the most! Awesome synth, big up and respect to the Elektron-Team, for me it's the 808/909 of the future... From Synths to Drums to chromatic sample playing. You name it it has it!
More than a drum machine
At first blush, this is a solid drum machine, but dig a bit deeper, and you'll be treated to a machine that gives great live performance potential and with it's hybrid use of analog sounds and samples, more than interesting production possibilities.
Perfect addition for any live performance. The pads are magical when you set them up with the different scenes and control. The fact you can blend samples with synthesis is pretty amazing and each channel has its own analog filter.
My only complaint is the samples are not stereo. other than that it is a dream drum machine.
