Get it now! Analog Rytm MK2
We fired up the Elektron Analog Rytm MKII and took it for a spin!
It sounded awesome!
The upgrade from the MK1 to the MKII is really quite extensive. Apart from each machine getting a physical makeover and improved OLED Screen, the A4 MKII got separate outputs and a few CV inputs, the Octatrack MKII got the ability to use Conditional Trigs, The RYTM also got a couple of CV inputs, but the greatest upgrade that the RYTM got was the ability to sample.
One of most annoying parts about using the RYTM was uploading samples onto it with Elektron’s old school C6 program. This is no longer a problem, because apart from having the ability to sample internally, Elektron has also created an app called “Transfer” that lets us seamlessly load samples into both Analog RYTM MkII and Digitakt.
There’s lots of ways to work with the Analog RYTM MkII, and everyone does it differently. A fully analog signal path allows you to create not only your regular drum sounds but allows you to mold melodic synth sounds using the Analog RYTM MkII’s new synth engine. This is made easy with its designated Chromatic Button, which turns the pads into a Chromatic keyboard.
In closing the sampling addition to the MKII alone is worth the price of admission, and the fact that it looks really sexy is just a bonus!
