Analog Keys, Elektron’s new synth unveiled
As expected, Elektron unveiled at its Launching Party in Berlin the enhanced version with built-in keyboard of the Analog Four, named Analog Keys.
Full details of the new Analog Keys will be announced tomorrow, but a presentation video shot at the Launching Party this weekend shows that Elektron’s new machin is a 3-octave 4-voice keyboard synth equipped with a joystick. It will feature more than 4000 preset memory, 512 sounds for all music styles, a step sequencer that can be programmed on the fly and offers the possibility to layer sequences/presets and create full and complex rhythmic and melodic sequences, and then tweak then with the joystick and the built-in effects. It will also be possible to assign different presets/sounds to separate areas on the keyboard, thanks to the Multimap mode.
Along with the Analog Keys, Elektron also "showcased" another new product at this Launching Party, but we will have to wait a bit more to discover it (NAMM 2014?).
Here’s the video:
