More about Analog Rytm:

Analog Rytm is an 8 voice analog drum machine with sample support.
Distinguished by the power of analog drum sounds fused with samples.
Perfected by the immediacy of drum pads coupled with Elektron sequencing.

*True analog punch*

The eight drum voices take advantage of several dedicated analog circuit
designs, each of them fine-tuned for generating specific classes of
analog drum sounds. A diverse range of software parameter sets provide
direct access to various parts of the circuitry, ingeniously enabling
the unusually wide spectrum of drum sounds the Analog Rytm is capable of

*Sample power*

The full percussive potential is realized by the clever sample engine.
It allows every voice to be spiced up with customizable and highly
bendable samples, which can be layered with the analog drum sounds. The
perfect unity of analog circuits, a flexible sample engine, and a
lightning-fast digital control system simply goes beyond.

*Beats with character*

Plenty of tools are available for shaping the vibe of the beats.
The special warmth and rawness of the Analog Rytm are courtesy of the
analog multi-mode filter and analog distortion circuit of each voice.
The FX send section, comprised of a reverb and a delay, adds polish and
shimmer to the beats - and before they hit the sound system, the analog
compressor and analog distortion of the master channel will ensure
proper pump and grit.

*Maximized playability*

Twelve backlit, multi-colored, pressure & velocity sensitive pads are
used in tandem with the Elektron step sequencer for easy and immediate
beat creation. When on stage, the performance mode and the scene
functionality provides several ways of drastically manipulating beats
live. The Analog Rytm is a one stop solution beat machine, suited for
any rhythm-oriented context.
