Great time to scratch that groovebox itch with €200 off retail on the Elektron Syntakt 12-track drum machine and synth machine. Plus a new update adds two new machines.

Update: Elektron has added two new Machines to the sound engine of the Syntakt. They are called SY RAW and SY SWARM and form part of the 1.20 OS update. SY RAW is all about classic analogue waveforms, whereas SY SWARM dives into supersaw vibes. You’ll also find support for a sustain pedal over MIDI, a rejig of the project and song saving and a bunch of bug fixes.

Syntakt

The Syntakt is your quintessential drum machine and groovebox. With 35 different sound-generating “machines”, you can build drum tracks, basslines, synth movements and construct your ultimate beats. It’s a hybrid machine of analogue and digital technology meshing together in something highly performable.

You get 8 digital tracks using 10 machines with overdrive, filters and two LFOs per track. You’ll also find 3 analogue drum tracks tied to 15 machines with overdrive filters and LFOs. A separate dedicated analogue Cymbal track has 12 machines and all the other bits. All of the tracks can be used as MIDI for running other gear directly from Syntakt.

For messing your music about, you get 4 expressive modifiers and track effects that include delay, reverb and distortion. It’s heavily button and beat-based, but you can scale the Syntakt’s pads into a keyboard mode or add a MIDI controller for a more melody-focused experience.

Finally, the sequencer offers 64 steps per pattern and track, with individual pattern lengths and an adjustable clock divider.

Syntakt is much more than a drum machine and more performable than a sequencer, and it’s yours for a limited time for €799 at Thomann.

    Realistischerer Preis. Kaum einer verstand, wie elektron so hoch pokern konnte. Die Bäume wachsen auch in Schweden nicht in den Himmel …

    Yes, retail price. Thomann’s price was 915€ for a long time, so less than 200€

    Isn’t it a permanent price decrease now? Both Thomann and Elektron’s site mention €799 without any mention of a temporary sale/discount.
