    Product Description

    Swedish manufacturer Elektron have been making synth hardware and software for 20 years. Even two decades in, they’re showing no signs of slowing down; introducing the deceptively tiny Model:Samples digital drum machine and sampler - perfect for musicians and producers on the move.

    Size doesn’t matter

    At the time of writing, this is one of Elektron’s smallest pieces of synth hardware. Despite that, it packs a mighty punch. With 6 tracks at your disposal, you’ve got more than enough legroom to create lo-fi beats, complex rhythms and glitchy grooves. 

    To get things going, you’ve got 300 preset Splice sounds – so you can start grooving straight out the box. All samples are high-quality digital, ranging from classic analog-style drum machines to abstract pops, clicks and thuds. This thing can go from old-school hip hop to apocalyptic trance in no time.

    Intuitive interface

    With the name Elektron on the front, you know this things going to be easy and fun to use. The interface has been designed to be as user-friendly as possible. Each knob has a single function, with an interface that’s laid out in an easily navigable way – reach out and interact your music without hesitation!

    You’ve also got a mighty 64-step sequencer at your disposal. This not only allows you to create complex, lengthy ideas, but you get individual track and scale settings per track. Interweave polyrhythms, swing your hats just the right amount, let your sub drops rumble a little longer – with absolute ease.

    Here’s what Elektron say:

    This tiny 6 track groovebox sounds a lot bigger than it looks. You get pretty much all of the Elektron superpowers in a sleek, lightweight, and accessible package. Loads of useful presets and loads of space for your own sounds. The controls are right there at your fingertips. A truly plug-and-play bundle of joy!

    Packed with great sounds

    The sound engine uses high-quality digital samples. There are 300 preset sounds supplied by Splice, ranging from the familiar kicks, snares, and hi-hats to exotic, never-before-heard ones. With a few tweaks, you can easily personalize any sample until it sounds just the way you want it. Transfer your own samples into it, or use any of the expertly crafted custom sound packs.

    Dedicated knobs

    As an Elektron first, this machine offers a complete set of tactile controls, with one function per knob. They're all right there on the front panel; just grab a knob and twist it. Unleash your music spontaneously using the six tough, velocity-sensitive pads. Record your every move live, or punch in your creation one step at a time using the superb Elektron sequencer.

    Ready to go

    At under one kilogram, you’re getting the benefits of a light and convenient machine that will surprise you with its snarling sonic power.

    Great little machine. I mostly use it as a metronome for demos or for rhythm box sounds like the CR78. The stock samples are a bit wack but when you load your own samples in it becomes a bit more powerful. The lack of independent outputs mean that it’s difficult to add much processing to your sounds in your DAW and so I find it difficult to get this to sound ‘big’ enough to be the main drum sound in my music. If it had independent outputs then this machine would be 100% better.

    Great sampler/drum-machine. Well designed interface, I have not had to refer to the manual too much, but the manual is also decent. Feels solid enough, but the power connector could more substantial, and could do with a lock or latch to hold it in place for live.

    Great little groove box, small and lightweight, can take with you around the house if you've a plug socket nearby and make some loops while drinking cup of tea in kitchen.
