Elektron Monomachine SFX-6
Version keypad SFX60 the SFX6 is a limited edition (500 copies) with a 3 octave keyboard corresponding to the velocity (but not aftertouch).

This is a funny box any length which includes the "standard" SFX60 and 3 octaves keyboard with joystick and garland LEDS.

We therefore have the characteristics of SFX60 decorated bonus provided by the keyboard, its LEDs, and switches its joystick.

As SFX60 must choose between 5 "machines" in parallel or one with 6 voice polyphony. It is multitimbral 6 monophonic voice but on each.

Various summaries (called "machines"):
- Virtual Analog: Superwave
- SID (emulated): SID
- FM: FM +
- Drums PCM: DigiPro
- Formant: VO
It is possible to mix the "machinery" and can well use the same six times.

So six sequencers in parallel to "turn" these machines with interesting bonus tracks 6 other sequences to control up to six external modules (expanders, samplers, ...).


The general configuration is it simple?
In fact yes. I found the animal a little tight at first by testing it with my buddy, but I got used to it in ten minutes.
You can go far enough (especially with P-Locks) and the manual is very useful. But this is not an incomprehensible machine.

Editing sounds and effects is it easy?
Instead. It's very friendly when we understand the logic Elektron.

The manual is clear and sufficient?
Yes I do.


Overall the sounds are nice, "machines" are powerful enough and the possibilities are vast. We are not facing a monster synthesis, some parameters are missing when you want to go really far.

Fortunately, P-Locks and 18 LFOs are there and allow good "move" the sound.

This is a very typical machine with a "digital" grain that must be assumed. The goal is not to reproduce the Moog, Oberheim or Buchla sounds. Navigating in a world that can go from the cold and sharp to soft and slightly muffled. Roundness and warmth are not in its attributes, we need to know and do with it.


I use it for a few days.
This is my ... oh, thirtieth machine less. Of course I do not have thirty machine to me, some stayed and others have been replaced or just sold.

I had the chance to test many machines many manufacturers:
Korg, Roland, Yamaha, Ensoniq, E-Mu, Elektron, Oberheim, Analogue Solutions, Quasimidi, Hohner, Casio, Kurzweil, ... the list is long.

Very pleased with this comes Monomachine sequencer "electro" very convenient. Quantize it hard, it is simple and effective. Combined with more flexible machinery is bliss. The sound is good, we want more: more machines at the same time! But it becomes a gas plant and the richness of the Elektron range is there, it allows you to run at the same time as sequencers than machines.

A very nice bike. Not ugly, oddly elegant in its raw and assumed dress.

It's addictive. We always wonder if we are not going to buy another, then another ... what my dear buddy of P & K: he has all or substantially all (still missing AD).

Machine recommended. I dreamed of this machine without knowing it was her.

Elektron Monomachine SFX-6
Keyboard type synthbr /> controllers pitch, modulation, etc. substain .... it's really full trs
connectors noon, in, out, thru., 6 mono out, I used that hand outputs for now, now that's enough, but the spars are trs outputs to implement many of the effects of comresseurs ... the change is external dansles parameters of the machine

at the sound, for those who know themselves elektron machines like the Machinedrum, synthesis sidstation (trs really good, even excellent via LFOs)
and four other synthetic INTERESTED .... just as in style as opposed to the MD who wants + minimalist, the sound is Monomachine + chiptune, 2001 Odysse the space, sound commodores machine ... it's really the right choice for electro (typ kraftwerk finally ...... its digital pop .. it is a good alternative to some modular
.... It's a fantastic machine after a week, all with great ease edit itself .. the sound is unique ... it sounds like some fisherspooner for tablecloths electros digital .. the sid with the emulation SETTING THE lfo and a little distortion is great, I do not know the sidstation
all layers combine well ... I hope that in Lavenir elektron add new layers (the synths are complementary and offer sublime melodies, provided the electro pop apprcier .. .. I like fun .. well .. I find the syntheses parcontre quite limited., ca forced to play on the internal filters
the rest on the utility jesais not .. I'll see it tonight

I would put 8 in the beginning it may seem limited in its machinery and
but finally it's knowing that they are pushing the limits, encourages a ca be cratif and use the LFOs, a learning machine synthesis .. trs crative, playful,


The config gnrale is fantastic ... very kind, with the advantages of the 21st century .. all edit itself, while continuously registers

edition trs simple ..
british manual, but we can guess what to do

I would put 8 because of its manual and some MIDI parameters rather vague
I apprci tutorials Creations to live in such
+ cot on the laboriously Monomachine is that all registers directly, we must have the reflex save everything in advance not to crush his kits


Sounds .......; waoooooo perfecto, I almost beginners to resell, but I learned to use it .. it offers a special dimension to the compositions, nothing to do with a vst as the mono QuadraSID ... everything is well put together rarangbr /> is a real rgal top of CRER, melodies intuitive + ARLIS complicate the mouse on pc here .. 0n recorded with the keyboard, while still live in the recall imperfections
the pace .... a real rgal for all lovers of electro-pop, chiptune, etc. ..; attention is not a machine for clubbers, it is typ trs sound design, c64 in much better (deleted from the cot cheap game boy for example) I would advise all lovers of commodores .. and new waves, digital electros

I used this machine before Tweakbench VST, including peach and ... QuadraSID the Monomachine worth its price and the difference lies in the dynamics and its ergonomic benefit that can really go far in the trs cr ation leaves add a live notes and repitcher in detail (live or APRS)

the vo-6 gives a character trs kraftwerk without the RSTR in this .. its not a vocoder, he plays sylhabes ... we can create good playing Młoda sylhabes so on .. cherchz not have a potato ems20 but rather a background groundwater that may be hard imprssionnantes .. .. hard to explain but it's really a head of implement this single and I wonder how you do without a keyboard and joystick

b-box sounds may seem to some kitsch but I think the goal is to have a elektron machines complmentaires the 5 machines complement each other perfectly .. the b-box was a low cot fi 12 bits. . ca's getting old electro, anne 70 early 80, or excellent for the British trip hop style new order ..
concerning the interest to have the Machinedrum behind .... I think it could be the duo infernal
knowing that the machine are combined, they have ressamblances (design, methods, sequences)

I put 10, the AC is widely trs


I use it for 15 days
t have my first day laborious, I even failed to sell it ... the electronics, power m'inquitait, the first day I had trouble with power of sub-level traits and demarage the extinction of the machine (I have a small park .. etc. .. ordis plugged into the same socket)

since it rsolu

its default / length, the internal battery lasts max 6 years (ca ca worry about costs for the backup
quality price ratio ... it is worth its price, must not close our eyes ... from elektron could put a 1500 euros .. but trs meticulously brushed aluminum Aesthetics trs .. sublime design, with flexible Joystik trs (nothing to do with a gadget)
I am in love with my mono

With experience, yes, coupled with the drum and bass is a real rgal with a Machinedrum have to see it can be too cold or the interests of the respective bar complment analos (tr606, 808 or 909) or a sampler with programing a jungle (a + a brief warm comprss with mono, which gives a cot asia, chiptune electronica ..
the demos on the site are trs overall mastery ... when the machine (after 1 week) you can really do inspire Creations +

9For the power supply to the abscence m'inquite ... also live with a fuse to avoid grilling machine that can be at 230 v or 115 v

lack of output CV, fm (+ short is in the IDE to connect it has a powerful modular)

I noticed when the other default must mutate live .. we must leave office and then press the button .. in short it's not practical, it would be best that can mutate t just to press the button again .. to live is not easy especially when you leave your finger on function and mgarde by pressing play or stop-rec ... well to remove any risk or a pattern track live (it happened to me 2 times)
I would have loved that one can set a protgr .. meaning you can play all the parameters without necessarily live dnaturer source .. It would have nice t trs

brief is a UFO.; that I saw corespond quej'en am also ..
it can be nice to have this synth to give a nice color .. electro example of hip hop and mono for the instrument should provide ca
