Elektron Analog Four MKII
The Elektron Analog Four MKII is the new benchmark for analog tabletop synthesizers. Tweaked circuitry delivering deeper bass than ever, new powerful sound control possibilities, dedicated outputs for each voice. Not to mention the ultra durable buttons, the big OLED screen and the premium design. No stone has been left unturned. The cast aluminum enclosure and ultra-rugged backlit buttons (rated for 50 million presses) make this a road-ready performance tool. The vivid OLED screen offers better visual feedback than ever before. And precision hi-res encoders plus the addition of quick performance controls provide an amazing hands-on experience. If you’ve been waiting for the classic combination of a 4-voice analog synth and sequencer, wait no longer: the Elektron Analog Four MKII is better than ever.
Elektron Analog Four MKII combines the best of analog and digital
Who doesn’t love analog circuitry for its warm, punchy sound, but we also know that digital control of certain jobs provides unmatched precision — and the Elektron Analog Four MKII is a perfect example of engineering that takes full advantage of this. In the Analog Four MKII, both oscillators of each voice are analog, including their elaborate waveshaping. Their pitches, however, are controlled digitally — along with the noise generator.
Modulate your sound with filters, envelopes, LFOs, FX, and more
The two filters of each voice (and the overdrive circuit between them) are fully analog — as are the amplifiers. The envelopes and LFOs — they’re digital; a design that allows them to venture well into the audible range without nasty artifacts. The signal path from the oscillators to the audio outputs — that’s totally analog, as well as the signal path from the external inputs to the audio outputs. The digital send effects run parallel to the main audio path; their wet signals are mixed with the dry analog signal before everything reaches the main output stage.
6-track sequencer lets you control your entire studio efficiently
The Elektron Analog Four MKII’s sequencer sports six tracks, the first four of which are synth tracks (with each track controlling a synth voice). Track 5 is your FX track, controlling movements of chorus, delay, and reverb parameters. Finally, you use the CV track to control the signals sent from the Analog Four MKII’s two CV/Gate outputs. Naturally, the parameters of all track types can be parameter-locked. The Elektron sequencer lets you control your analog studio in the most efficient way possible.
Dedicated CV track and four CV/Gate outputs let you control all your analog gear
You can sequence your analog gear with CV inputs using the Analog Four MKII’s dedicated CV track. The four CV/Gate outputs pass control voltages for controlling any parameter or pitch (V/oct andHz/V), Trig and Gate pulses for trigging envelopes (V-trig and S-trig), and repetitive clock pulses for syncing analog sequencers, LFOs, drum machines, and more. You can use the Analog Four MKII’s external inputs to filter external signals. You can even link the filters to form a parameter-lockable filter bank with up to eight filters (4 ladder and 4 multi-mode filters).
