The Elektron MachineDrum SPS-1 Drum Machine packs in 16 unique drum sounds and the ability to utilise five original drum synthesis methods. The Elektron MachineDrum's sole purpose is to give you the ability to create some amazing beats quickly and easily as soon as you power it on.
Whether you need legacy drum sounds or something more modern and experimental, the synth engine of the Elektron MachineDrum cater for a huge sonic palette. The 46 individual audio generating machines utilise 5 different synthesis methods including GND basic, TRX retro beatbox, enhanced FM synthesis and more, so that you can be as creative as you want.
All of these sounds can then be put through the built in impressive effects. Echo delay, gatebox reverb, EQ's and compressors can all be applied globally or to each individual step for some completely unique beats.
The Elektron MachineDrum SPS-1 contains a powerful 16 track sequencer that is able to capture 64 steps per pattern. Entire sets can be put together and controlled in realtime with full MIDI support using the 384 MISI controllable parameters.
Once you have created your kits and patterns, you can save them to any of the 128 memory slots for instant recall. You can also save up to 32 songs making the Elektron MachineDrum SPS-1 a beast when it comes to liver performance.
To ensure that the Elektron MachineDrum can fit seamlessly into your workflow, you are presented with a huge amount of connectivity. Full MIDI, 6 balanced audio outputs, headphone and audio inputs mean that whatever your rig, the Elektron MachineDrum will work with it harmoniously. You can even utilise the powerful effects on any audio source that you feed into the MachineDrum.
All of this creative beat power is encased in a portable unit that is made from steel and finished in a brushed aluminium. Such is the quality of the Elektron MachineDrum SPS-1 that it even comes with a 3 year guarantee. If you need a beat making machine that can sound as familiar as your favourites, or worlds apart from anything you've heard, the Elektron MachineDrum SPS-1 Drum Machine is first class.
