    Here is a short demo and tutorial of the Elektron Model Cycles, we know this is a nieche market but a lot of pople ask us what equipment we use and how me make our songs and music so for all the audio geeks out there this is for you.

    If you want to get down and dirty here is some info!


    6 voice FM drum synthesizer and 64 step sequencer
    Stereo Out on un or balanced jacks, mirrored on a fairly beefy headphone out.
    MIDI in and out on 3.5mm. It comes with converter leads.
    Mains power only, although the somewhat elusive BP-1 battery handle (4xAAs) might be available sometime.
    Comes with a snazzy branded USB lead too., is USB class compliant, does two-channel audio and MIDI over USB. All or none can be active as you decide.
    Comes with USB lead, MIDI adapters, PSU, manual, stickers.
    6 “machines”, each track can be any machine.
    Kick, Snare, Metal, Perc, Tone, Chord.
    Play with the T1-T6 keys, settings in the PAD MENU. Velocity is tough, I turn off.
    Or play with the 1-16 keys 16 semitones, with 9 being the “middle” C5, same as the pad. Can transpose with FUNC+TRACK
    12 parameters-
    Color, Shape, Sweep, Contour
    Pitch and decay
    Delay and reverb
    LFO, Vol+Dist
    Punch and hold
    Swing and chance
    Go through each one by sound, including swing and chance
    Two FX sends - delay with adjustable time and feedback, reverb with size and tone.
    Each track has it’s own FX send, which can be sequenced.
    Go thru them
    One per track, can control one parameter. Speed( combi of LFO SPEED and LFO Mul setting), phase, reset, ENV mode allows in to work like an envelope
    1-64 steps
    1/8th - x2 speed
    Each track can have own settings
    Step record, live quantized, live unquantized, quantize menu
    Otherwise known as automation
    Go thru it all, don’t forget changing instrument
    Doesn’t work in rec mode

    Outputs all ¼” jacks, mains, USB mid and or audio, class compliant
    6 voice FM drum synth - each voice 1 of 6 machines in any combi - 6 kicks joke
    64 step sequencer - each track can be different length and playback speed
    6 banks of 16 patterns, stored in one of 96 projects - if u fill it up u probably need to get some vitamin D
    Sound of each machine - no indicator of what the parameter is on
    Can play sound with Pad or chromatically
    Enter steps - 3 Record modes

    Big up all the music out there!
