Elektron Machinedrum SPS-1 UW+
Synthetic Percussion Sequencer and Sampler
What is the Machinedrum?
The Machinedrum SPS-1UW is the sharpest rhythm producing tool in exitence. Combining extremely flexible drum synthesis methods with a sampling engine, the powerful sequences is the icing on the cake.
The Machine SPS-1UW+ MKll (UW=User Wave) is a drum machine equipped with numerous drum synthesis methods as well as a sampling engine. But this is not your ordinary beatbox, it’s something far better.
Both synthetic and sample based sounds can be manipulated to great extents. In a matter of seconds a vocal sample can be transformed in to a kick drum. Change a few parameters and a hand clap is suddenly a hi-hat.
Your imagination is the only limit
Live performers have a trusty companion in the SPS-1UW. You can capture loops from a turntable, slice and rearrange recorded material whilst adding effects and filtering. The ultra-flexible sequencer allows for total control of all your sounds and samples. In real time.
The +Drive of the Machinedrum dramatically increases the storage capability. The +Drive allows over 16,000 patterns, 8,000 kits and 6,000 samples to be internally saved. Use the bundled TM-1 interface, which comes at no extra cost, for quick back ups and sample transfers. The SPS-1 UW is a self contained power house.
Get ready for beat making without compromises
Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII
The Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII is a drum machine based on four original drum synthesis methods. It contains everything needed to create the perfect beat right out of the box.
The range of different synthesis methods serves as the foundation of the sound generation possibilities of the Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII. These methods cater for an impressive range of sounds, but it doesn’t stop there. Add the track effects, the resonant multi mode filters and the LFO’s and you will be able to come up with any percussive sound imaginable.
Use the sequencer to both control and shape sounds in great detail. It is one of the most flexible ever made. Thanks to the customizable nature of the Machinedrum you can also use it to sequence external gear. It can function as the brains of any MIDI based studio or live setup.
The Machinedrum can also be used as an extremely potent effects unit. The two audio inputs will let you process, twist and bend external sounds until they sound like nothing else. This will for sure breathe new life in your other equipment.
The Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII has a bigger brother, the SPS-1UW+ MKII. They are almost identical, but the SPS-1UW+ MKII also features a sampling engine and a +Drive. The +Drive greatly expands the storage capabilities. If you require more storage, the SPS-1 MKII can be upgraded with a +Drive.
This is drum synthesis in a class of its own.
Elektron Monomachine SFX60+
The Ultimate Sound Generator
Sound Shaping Devices
Each of the six Monomachine tracks is loaded with sound shaping devices. At your command is a tape style delay, a resonant multi mode filter, a sample rate reducer, a distortion effect, an arpeggiator and no less than three LFO’s – per track. The sound palette is limitless.
Easy to use
Despite the depth of the Monomachine it is very easy to use. Every parameter is close at hand and no confusing menus are in your way. Everything is laid out in a logical and usable manner. This is particularly useful when you perform live and don’t want to press the wrong buttons.
A special MIDI mode gives you control of six dedicated MIDI tracks. Use the versatile arpeggiators and all the other special sequencer features to take MIDI sequencing to the next level. The Monomachine is a given centre piece in any studio.
A designers dream come true
You can upload your own customized waveforms and use them in the Monomachine environment. This, plus the ability to treat sound incoming through the two external inputs using the special FX machines, makes the Monomachine a sound designer’s dream come true.
The Monomachine SFX-60+ MKII comes equipped with a +Drive by default. With a +Drive there is no risk of running out of storage space. Over 16’000 patterns, 16’000 kits and 8’000 waveforms can be internally stored.
Man and machine have never been closer to each other.
TM-1 MIDI Interface
The first MIDI interface making use of the new Elektron Turbocharged standard
Use the TM-1 with compatible gear to make slow MIDI transfers a thing of the past.
The TM-1 is the first MIDI interface making use of the new Elektron Turbocharged standard. It is a 1 in/1 our USB MIDI interface capable of increasing the MIDI bandwidth up to 10 times. It is designed with the Machinedrum and Monomachine in mind, but it will work perfectly with any MIDI equipped gear.
Operation is driverless. Just plug the TM-1 into any USB port of your Mac or PC computer and you’re ready to go.
The Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ MKII comes bundled with a TM-1 interface at no extra cost. The increased MIDI bandwidth makes it perfect for sample transfers to and from your computer.
