Gearank Recommendation

The Elektron Analog Rytm appeared on our now defunct recommended list for Drum Machines in September 2016.


Note: This was superseded by the Elektron Analog Rytm MKII.

The Elektron Analog Rytm is a premium analog drum machine with synthesizer and sequencer capabilities.

It combines analog drum sound synthesis with sample triggering allowing for interesting percussive sounds that can be both familiar and unique as you want. You can then add in any of its library of built-in effects and filters, and what you get are dynamic and personalized beats that will easily stand out.

While it only has 12 velocity and pressure sensitive pads, the samples and the eight analog drum voices will be more than enough to keep you busy and inspired – you can even color code each of the pads for quick visual identification.

With all the parameters and input/output options, the Elektron Analog Rytm can be customized to fit your style and workflow.

This is a powerful yet compact beat production machine that experienced musicians will definitely appreciate.
