Elektron Introduces Analog Keys – A Four Voice Polyphonic Synthesize
After a few weeks of teasing with invites to last Saturdays event where they introduced the world to a new addition to their line up, Elektron released everything you need to know about Analog Keys today.
November 26, 2013 – Swedish music machine makers Elektron has just announced their latest instrument. The Analog Keys is a four voice flagship analog synthesizer, conceived with the modern artist in mind. Fully analog signal path, digital controls, and unprecedented playability make it an instrument for the expressive musician.
Analog Keys seems pretty power packed and versatile as it stands. Elektron says, “The keyboard, the performance mode, the MIDI controller functionality, the assignable joystick, the CV/Gate and MIDI connectivity, and the fluent integration of the Elektron step sequencer are part of the reasons why the Analog Keys so effortlessly bridges the gap between artist and instrument.”
Analog Keys will be available for purchase on December 5th and ships on December 9th. So how much will this “Flagship” 4 voice analog synth set you back? Ohhhh just a mere $1849.
