Celebrate Elektron’s 25th anniversary with handmade limited versions of three of their biggest boxes.
Elektron Remix Editions
Few electronic instrument companies can boast of the kind of respect and influence as Elektron. The Swedish company has been at it since 1998, making 2023 their 25th anniversary. To celebrate, Elektron has released a series of limited edition models of three of their most famous instruments, the Digitakt, Digitone and Syntakt.
Dubbed E25 Remix Editions, these three new releases replace the familiar black chassis with stainless steel, recalling the company’s earliest products, the SidStation and Machinedrum. Each is handmade with laser engraving and a stamp indicating its number out of 1998 units (1998 being the year the company was established, of course). These will also include a silver Remix Edition cassette featuring music by Elektron employees. Here’s hoping for some solid deep house from Ricky Tinez.
Elektron Remix Editions: Same As It Ever Was
Aside from the changes to the chassis, the rest of the Digitakt, Digitone and Syntakt Remix editions appear to be the same as the normal versions. The Digitakt is still a kick-ass digital drum machine with eight audio tracks, eight dedicated MIDI tracks, support for sampling and excellent effects. The Digitone is the eight-voice polyphonic FM synth you need, with the added bonus of filters, overdrive and of course that famous Elektron sequencer. Syntakt is a hybrid digital and analogue drum machine/synthesizer with digital and analogue filters, overdrive, and more. They all feature song mode now, of course.
The E25 Remix Editions are priced slightly higher than the original versions. The Digitakt E25 Remix Edition is yours for €1049, the Digitone E25 Remix Edition will also set you back €1049, while the Syntakt E25 Remix Edition is going for a cool €1199. Don’t forget to factor in the cost of a cassette player.
