Great All-In-One Box

I upgraded from the Model: Cycles, which I really liked, to Syntakt. You get 12 tracks instead of 6 and two LFOs per track. The sound design machines seem a bit more limited but there are more of them so, overall, you probably have more sound design options. I've not owned a Digitone or Analog Rytm but it seems like you've got both combined in one box. There is no sampling, obviously, and you are limited to a specific set of FM-type synth sounds - although the analogue dual VCO can create a surprising range of sounds because of the multitude of waveform combinations available: from Moog-style bass to disruptive noise. And the analogue drums are great. I've only had Syntakt a week but I can see that it's going to get a lot of use. With a bit of imagination you could almost certainly do a live set with the Syntakt alone. It's easy to create generic house, techno etc but if you experiment with varying track lengths and probability settings you can go beyond rigid, grid-like dance music. It works really well for ambient and generative music, for example. As with all Elektron products, the manual is long and there is a steep learning curve - but if you are familiar with their sequencers from other products then that will speed things up a bit. For me, the advantage to Elektron products is their portability: they get you away from the DAW and allow you to make music anywhere - and with 12 tracks that really can mean complete songs. Mine will be going on holiday with me this summer.


An Almost Perfect Little Box

This thing is amazing in almost all regards! The only real problem is: no easy ability to create full songs.. which is a shame really. I would also like an integrated battery, as it is quite portable otherwise.

Other than that, no complaints!


Best groovebox

If you ever used Elektron Model Cycles - you will recognize that original sound. If not - this is the best groove box ever made with it's own unique sound character. Small and well build - feels like a solid product with that metal chassis, controls at your fingertips, Syntakt combines FM synthesis with an analog feel. Plus, there is all Elektron original sequencer features such as parameter and sound locks. And you easily can transfer all your tracks to your DAW with a "Transfer" application - what else can you wish for?

Interessantes Best Of Elektron Gerät, aber dennoch zu wenig
Holodeck 05.05.2022
Ich beschränke mich auf "zu wenig", ich möchte den Hype-Hipster nicht Konkurrenz machen.

- digitale Synthese klingt durchweg dünn - aber super für Chip Tunes
- Monophon (bei digitaler Synthese) ernsthaft Elektron?
- Nach wie je zuvor 2 FX Busse - bei 12 Tracks, in 2022?
- keine Chorus, der den Monosound etwas "andicken" würde
- Nach wie vor nur 4 Takt Pattern und kein Song-Mode - ist das eine Elektron Religion?
- Nach wie vor nur ein Undo Schritt! ich verstehe es nicht

Alles in allem (ja die analogen VCOs kling gut, der analoge Overdrive auch und Overbridge ist auch schön) zu wenig für 950€
Ich hab es versucht und werde leider auch dieses Elektron Teil wieder zurückschicken.
