Elektron Demos- Get hands on with Analog Four, Machinedrum, Octatrack and Monomachine
Elektron make some unbelievably inspiring gear. If twiddling about on an Analog Four or Machinedrum doesn’t get your creativity going, then you really are in a serious creative slump!
Computer-based recording is incredible, control surfaces are great, soft-synths are great, but sometimes you just want to leave the computer switched off and play with a piece of hardware that was created with the sole purpose of making music. Not for checking your twitter feed while you wait for that mixdown to render.
If you’ve not used one before, an Elektron instrument can perhaps seem a bit intimidating. Spend more than five minutes with it though, or 1 minute if you’re with someone who knows their way around it, and you can be programming sounds and sequences as if you’d been doing it for years. Well, months anyway…
While we have a fair amount of experience with the Elektron units -the Machinedrum, Monomachine, Octatrack and Analog Four- ourselves, we can’t compete with the guy whose job it is to demo these things around the world day after day. And the good news for you is, that he’s coming here to show YOU these incredible bits of kit and answer your questions!
Yes, Projekt Dataline will be here on the 17th September 3 pm to 6 pm. We have six half-hour appointments available so get in touch to firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred appointment times, and we’ll get you on the list. Appointments will be allocated on a first come-first served basis, so book early to avoid disappointment!
