Elektron Syntakt – 12 Track Drum Machine and Synthesizer

The Elektron Syntakt is a 12 Track Drum Machine and Synthesizer that offers both Analog and Digital synthesis.

You can fulfil all of your sound crafting, sequencing, and performance needs, in an all-around music mega box that fits in your lap. Syntakt is a drum specialist, full of percussive possibilities. With its four analog and eight digital tracks, it can be used for; melody, harmony, and bass sounds too. Experience overall epic sounds from the past, pulling others into existence from the future.

The streets of Syntakt are never-ending, the neon lights are never-dimming, and its underground is fathomless. Discover worlds within worlds. Adore now. Explore forever.

Meet The Machines

The Elektron Syntakt has 35 sound-generating machines to call on, covering a wide range of drum and melodic sounds. Some machines have been reimagined from Analog Rytm and Model: Cycles, with deeper sound control for the latter, while others are entirely new to the world.

Also, in order to create and personalize your sound, we’ve made sure you’ve got a set of parameter controls tailor-made for each machine. They let you quickly tweak the nature of each type of sound, showing you just the relevant options. Comprehensive without being overwhelming. Let loose with analog or digital overdrive, depending on the tracks you’re playing with.

The graphics more than play their part too:

  • Plenty of animated icons offering visual guidance
  • Extra clarity on how each parameter affects the sound.

The joys of tweaking shouldn’t only be for the ears after all.

Special Effects

Overall, Syntakt lets you route any of your synth tracks or external audio sources through the FX block. This gives you analog distortion and filtering, and a couple of LFOs to go to town with. Additionally, you can also call on Delay and Reverb as powerhouse send effects.

Furthermore, all of the above effects can be sequenced with the FX track. Have them kick in at just the right moment. You could also add accents and dramatic changes to the selected tracks or external audio. Or, additionally, use it as a master track for ducking and gating effects.

Superior Sequencing with Syntakt

The world-class 64-step sequencer lets you bring dynamic soundscapes into existence by controlling both structure and sound to such a degree, that it’s like a musical instrument in itself. Simply holding any step and tweaking any parameter onto it is an ultra-fast and detailed way of sequencing, or go wild and record your escapades live.

You can also build your composition one tonal nuance at a time, or real-time record every twist and turn you make. Some call it Swedish sequencing. We call it parameter locking.

Sonic Stimulation

Also, Syntakt comes loaded with a melting pot of sounds with which to craft your own story. There are over 1000 presets to dip into straight out of the box, enabling you to call forth musical inspiration from the get-go.

Overall, with such possibilities at your fingertips, the only certainty is that you won’t run out of options.
