Elektron Unveils Analog Keys
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Elektron has unveiled the latest member of its botique synth family: the Analog Keys, "a flagship analog synthesizer" which offers a 100% analog signal path, digital controls, and what the company describes as "unprecedented playability." The four-voice synthesizer has much in common with the company's Analog Four synth, but adds a 37-note keyboard and additional performance-based enhancements, such as an assignable joystick. Furthermore, the Analog Keys boasts two analog oscillators, two sub oscillators (with an analog overdrive circuit on each voice), dual analog filters, a built-in step sequencer, high-quality on-board FX, and an customizable modulation architecture that allows for highly detailed routing of modulation signals.
Beginning December 5, the Analog Keys will be available to order for a price of $1849, and will ship on December 9. An introductory video for the new synth can be watched below; full details on the unit can be found here.
