I'll let you read the review for all the details. But overall we are spoiled!

Two things missing in my opinion, sustain pedal input, and a larger keyboard.
I can still add more voices to polyphony, but it's really stunning all that comes with 4 managed to make the sauce elektron voice!

Not to mention an impeccable finish. I was a little worried about the robustness of the joystick, but in use, I realize that he must not cash trouble :)

UTILIZATION

Attention please, for those who do not know elektron, it requires learning, but this learning is very rewarding.

This is also what made me long slow about elektron machines, too few buttons for my taste and a ridiculously small screen ... We are in 2014 we have the technology to produce large screens ...

In the end, it is perfectly executed, a logical and incredible strength. Without knowing anything about it I managed fairly quickly to edit sounds in store. It took the help of a seller to activate the polyphony, but I was expecting worse. Good on the other hand I am not amused with the sequencer in the store. For him you still get the doc or while watching the tutorial on youtube cuckoo. But once you know the basics of the sequencer, you have fun very quickly and it's still super intuitive.

Besides about this manual is very comprehensive technically, plus it gives plenty of tips and tricks for sound design. A little more would have been a kind of reminder with all the shortcuts, because there are a bunch!

In elektron you feel you an army of software developers who have a refined OS, I did not have to suffer from bugs or anything. It changes the OS tempest looks like the work of one student does not pay (sorry for this free bashage aside, but I think I still have the tempest across the throat).

SOUNDS

Versatile to possible!
At first I was a little scared to find myself facing a cold and clinical, but then not at all! Well, not only :)

I sort of low on this machine that have nothing to envy my phatty sub, I think the ladder filter is not for nothing. The subs are an abysmal depth. Is added to this one multimode filter, a real treat.

Another thing I love is that many modulations are hard wired and therefore accessible very quickly. For example, the fade in / fade out of the LFO or noise. It is a kind of ultra simplified envelope made with a single parameter that is usually done with an ADSR. It makes a big economy in the envelopes! And if we find that these small envelopes too tight, it is still 2 more, each with two modulation destinations. Not to mention that you can choose the type of slope of all the envelopes (linear or exponential). Really, we are spoiled!

A word to the factory preset. They are pretty good. There is also that you can go directly to the download site elektron, and in this regard the biopads are excellent! (Another good point for elektron is that they offer an app to load sysex).

OVERALL OPINION

Initially I tried a modern polyphonic analog, and I naturally turned to the prophet 08. After a very bad experience with the DSI Tempest (you can go see my review above) I was pretty cool with the brand . When I saw an analog keys next to the prophet in the store, I decided to try a little, without much conviction because I wanted a prophet who has more than 08 buttons and more votes. But I took me a slap.

What I choose to push the analog compared to the prophet, it is mainly the synthesis side that offers small innovations that look future-oriented while the prophet 08 gave me the impression of be turned a little to the past for my taste ... Of course there are new things in the prophet 08 but for me, this is anecdotal compared to what is provided by analog keys ...

Finally, I looked forward to the arrival of the overbridge, which will transform this already great synth in a killer!

Elektron for me represents what is best in today's synths. These people fully understand how people use their machines today. Now I'm very curious to analog Rytm :)

I remake that choice without hesitate for a second! This is a synth I highly recommend! But as the first analog synth, the slope can be steep, between learning the synthesis, the hardware and software interconnections, the mode of operation elektron, etc ... it can do a lot at once.
