Elektron has just announced the Analog Four MKII and Analog Rytm II. Same gray aluminum enclosure as the Octatrack MKII we saw last week and with minimal but relevant improvements.
Both units now boast a crisp, large OLED screen providing optimal feedback in dimly lit environments (at last!), more durable buttons, a quicker workflow thanks to an increased amount of buttons/bigger pads, expression/CV inputs for external control of their parameters.
The Analog Four MKII inherits two of the best features of the Analog Keys – a better bass and separate outputs for each voice and enhanced analog overdrive for more bite and growl
The Analog Rytm MKII now can sample too, up to 1Gb (this means that if you were going to get Digitakt or an Octatrack, you have one more option to consider)!
Both units are compatible with MKI projects and data, and they are both Overbridge enabled (they come with Overbridge free, to get the premium version you’ll have to add $99).
Pricing and Availability
Analog Four MKII 1449 EUR / 1349 USD. Available in September.
Analog Rytm MKII 1699 EUR / 1549 USD. Available in October.
