New volume in our sampling series of iconic drum machines.
Our victim for this occasion has been the Elektron Analog Rytm, the very well known hybrid drum machine (analog + sampling) originated in Sweden.
We’ve naturally overlooked the digital part of the machine and exclusively focused on sampling the cream that nurtures from its analog components, which are highly versatile and offer a great deal of flavours.
The result is a mighty collection of 100% analog sounds, that distance themselves from the renowned 808 and 909 to offer something more state-of-the-art with an extra touch of a ‘surgical’ Swedish personality, that will satisfy both Techno and House lovers, Hip-Hop beatmakers and Pop composers!
So, get ready to fill your samplers with the most cutting-edge analog sounds!
PS: If you own an Elektron Octatrack, get yourself our official sound pack for it!

WHY SHOULD WE CARE ABOUT DYNAMIC RANGE IN SAMPLE PACKS?
“For a start, compression and normalization are a process that is almost impossible to counter. Of course you can use expanders to regain some dynamic range, but the negative artifacts of compression and volume normalization will still be there.
If you think twice, most serious producers have their own set of preferred tools and dynamic processors So if you want to use dynamic sounds in say, a more “laid back” production, you just can’t do it with regular libraries.
When dealing with synthetic analog sounds, dynamics are key. Unlike real drum and instrument samples, synthetic sounds are already very undynamic, so having the option to “let them breathe” a bit is certainly a good idea.
It’s as close as having the machine yourself. The “real deal” doesn’t sound compressed, it breathes and it sounds RAW!”
