Elektron released Syntakt, a 12 track drum computer and synthesizer.
Elektron invites you into a sonic metropolis that melts analog and digital synthesis into one instrument of outrageous opportunity. All your sound crafting, sequencing, and performance needs are fulfilled, in an all-round music mega box that fits in your lap.
Syntakt is a drum specialist, full of percussive possibilities, but its four analog and eight digital tracks can be used for melody, harmony, and bass sounds too. Experience epic sounds from the past, pulling others into existence from the future, using 35 analog and digital machines.
“The team here cherishes the musical creativity and output of the Elektron community,” said CPO Gösta Wellmer. “When designing Syntakt we always had the musician in mind. Our goal was to design a highly creative instrument, that is consistent to navigate but with many side tracks to shape your own unique, individual sound. We can’t wait to see and hear what people dream up.”
Add analog distortion and filtering to your mix or separate tracks, using the FX block. Run wild and free with the four expressive modifiers, with different velocities, retrigs, and varied settings of other parameters at your fingertips. Access a variety of different scales via the keyboard mode. And create dynamic soundscapes with the phenomenal sequencer.
Initial demand for Syntakt has been huge. For the moment we have sold out, but we will restock soon. Until then, please visit a local retailer carrying the Elektron range of products. Prices on elektron.se are 999 USD/999 EUR/849 GBP.
