UPDATE – it is
Synth DB -> Elektron Analog Rytm groove box with TR sequencer
we don’t know yet – it’s something with 12 (dynamic I assume) colour-illumination-Pads –
so it could be:
• MPC / Maschine Style Groovebox – Sample Engine
• Clip Launcher – Sampling Engine
• Some Synth or Drum Gear – but maybe makes not too much sense since there’s already Machinedrum for synth drums..
it is – a combination – sample playback and analog sounds but not a clip launcher.
it is analog WITH sample playback engine added:
Elektron Analog Rytm is the name of the new Elektron.
it IS analog it has 8 voices and it’s made for drums and also it has sample capability. and it has 12 drum pads..
8 analog filters and distortion.
also compressor at master section
pads are dynamic
sample SUPPORT may not mean tooo much sample ram but enough to load what you really need.
• so – what about a sequencer – maybe including poly melodies the Elektron-way? and – this may also incorporate samples? makes sense. And – 12 Pads makes 12 chromatic Tones possible which is enough to play all notes polyphonically – the last 4 aren’t needed because this machine already has it’s 16step-button line.
NAMM Mini Update: Waldorf has this – looks like Rocket 2 or redesign of it?
UPDATE2 : it’s a filter box – just like Rocket under 200€ and it’s a filter box – not a synth this time.
