Different from what?
a) Other 4 voice ...um...analogs...like the TETRA?
b) Other Elektron offerings?
c) Another product of interest on VSE --> minibrute
d) All of the above
Different from everyone's guesses given elektron's style? The clue was hidden in the first half of the sentence you quoted. ;)

Now, I am not particularly knowledgeable about electronics so maybe someone could pipe in and explain?
I understand software is as malleable as your ideas so anything is possible so the parameter locks in an elektron machine is a perfectly conceivable idea and could go anywhere in the future. But what about using them with analogue signals? If you had parameter locks in the same way so you can lock many at once on one note then the next you can have a totally new set of parameters locked then back again for the next note etc etc. Am I assuming right that an analogue signal may not handle that sort of toing and froing? Or is it that it is possible but it has never been done?

Well it'd require digital to analog converters, but sure it'd be possible, just like MIDI to CV converters.

I just wanna know if the warranty covers it from being buried in dirt haha :D

okay, wow, that teaser was well done but told me nothing about the gear. Which is fine - I get that the point is to build up suspense. I was just not expecting a film trailer.

Agreed that it did look better than world war z.

I know this is a funny statement, but I wonder how it handles glide...This could be super helpful in my studio...my primary set up is MnM and MD. Beyond the 4 voices, with two dedicated CV tracks, I love the idea of tighter integration with CV based synths. If it does everything the Mobius does, I could see trading these two pieces out...

Pile o' demos on Elektron's Sodclod. December 4th they say. €1099.



I reckon this thing is going to be pretty ace but I'm sort of glad those demos are fairly unenticing as I've enough problems with gas after eating my lunch too fast.

"Analog oscillators and filters ensure the most organic sounds imaginable"

I dunno guys, I can imagine quite a few things that are at least as organic as electrical circuits.

I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Wow, sounds really raw. I'd like to read the manual before I preorder but this is actually really tempting for me. I've been using the Octatrack as the brains for my eurorack setup and this would really compliment it. I'm not really one to buy a first rev unit though, I think I'd rather wait and pay a little more to know that they've got any manufacturing issues under control. Not that I think this unit is more likely than any other to have issues, I try to avoid any rev one units from any company.

If this is as fun to use as the other elektron units they're gonna sell a LOT of them. P-locking patch changes - madness!

2× assignable LFOs
1× dedicated vibrato LFO
2× dedicated waveshape LFOs
1× amp envelope
2× assignable envelopes
2× dedicated LFO fade envelopes
1× dedicated noise fade envelope
1× dedicated vibrato envelope
1× dedicated autobend envelope

That's a ton of LFOs end envelopes too. Phew.
