Elektron Analog Four MKII 4-Voice Analog Synthesizer Black
The Elektron Analog Four MKII is the new benchmark for analog tabletop synthesizers. Now available in a sleek black design!
Featuring tweaked circuitry with deeper bass than ever; new powerful sound control possibilities; as well as dedicated outputs for each voice. Not to mention the ultra-durable buttons, the big OLED screen and the premium design. No stone is 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. On top of that, precision hi-res encoders and 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 Black 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 Black is a perfect example of engineering that takes full advantage of this. In the Analog Four MKII Black, both oscillators of each voice are analog, including their elaborate waveshaping. The pitches, however, can be 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; the wet signals are mixed with the dry analog signal before reaching 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, you can parameter-lock the parameters on all tracks. Allowing you to 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
Finally, you can sequence all 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).
Above all, the Analog Four MKII in Black is a fantastic tabletop synth and the new black finish only adds to everything we loved about the original!
