Combining the infinite power of analog drum creation and mixing it with powerful sampling capability the Elektron Analog Rytm Beat Machine gives you a complete beat making solution to add into your existing performance or recording workflow.
Character and kick
All of the 8 drum voices that come built into the Elektron Analog Rytm come complete with a dedicated analog multi-mode filter and analog overdrive circuit. Huge kicks drums, biting snare drums, punchy toms and crystal shimmering hi-hats are all delivered with a purity that you just don't get from digital equivalents.
The Elektron Analog Rytm has the capability to change the software parameters which access parts of the analog circuitry generating specific sound types. This gives you the possibility to create some amazing drum sounds and all this can be easily managed via the backlit LCD screen and easy to operate front panel.
While the analog heart of the Analog Rytm is plenty powerful on its own, the addition of some digital benefits really propel it into another stratosphere. Lightening fast triggering from the 12 velocity and pressure sensitive pads as well as changing presets instantly without any audio lag make the Rytm stand head and shoulders above any pure analog machine out there.
The Analog Rytm comes with plenty of room for your auditory needs too. A 1GB +Drive is built in to store patterns, kits and samples for you to integrate into your music so that you will never feel limited when it comes to your beat making needs.
The rear panel of the Elektron Analog Rytm presents a plethora of connection options including MIDI, main out, voice out, stereo in and headphone out. There is also a USB 2.0 port so that you can connect this amazing beat machine up to any existing gear you have in your rig.

I find this is great on its own for a minimal house impression but really shines when its used for bass and rhythm or messed up samples with the analog, resonant filter that is amazing.
The RYTM also creates space in a mix so an additional drum machine or a few drum samples over the top could slot in really nicely.
