If you need a new way to generate sounds in your Eurorack setup or a new groovebox to create patterns outside of your DAW, this is an opportunity to save with these exciting offers. Let’s take a closer look at the deals currently available.

Elektron Model:Cycles

The Elektron Model:Cycles is a 6-track FM groovebox with plenty of creative potential. You have a choice of six sound generators including Kick, Snare, Metal, Perc, Tone, and Chord, and the six audio tracks can also function as MIDI tracks.

In addition, the sequencer allows you to create patterns with real-time or step input and you have a total of 96 patterns in each project. With the controls, you have access to the essential sound-shaping tools and effects like delay and reverb.

Overall, the controls might not be as extensive as the Digitone, but the intuitive workflow allows you to work fluidly and produces some truly interesting results, especially when combined with other synths and drum machines.

Hexinverter Mindphaser

The Mindphaser is an incredibly deep 30 HP dual-oscillator module from Hexinverter Électronique with multiple modulation busses and a waveshaper section with a wide range of I/O and controls.

Its design is built around the central carrier VCO and its corresponding modulator VCO to the left, both with course and fine-tuning controls. With the main frequency modulation bus and the through-zero phase modulation bus, you have a wide range of sonic possibilities.

In addition, there are individual waveform outputs. So when you combine the intermodulation and waveshaping capabilities, the Mindphaser becomes an incredible tool for creating unheard-of new sounds.

Roland TR-8S

The Roland TR-8S draws from the legacy of the TR series rhythm machines, with a versatile sound creation and layering system powered by Roland’s ACB technology.

You can create sound with a combination of classic TR sounds and onboard or imported samples, giving your drum patterns a uniquely authentic edge. What’s more, the filters and effects like delay, reverb, and overdrive add more texture to your drums.

Samples can be loaded via SD card, and you can even add external processing onto each individual sound with the eight analogue outputs.

Polyend Tracker Mini

If you’re looking for a portable solution to channel your creativity, the Polyend Tracker Mini offers a slightly different approach to the average groovebox. Create sounds by recording, loading samples, or using the granular and wavetable synth engines.

When it comes to pattern sequencing and arrangement, the Tracker Mini is incredibly versatile with an offline sample editor and per-step effects to create the macro-style patterns used in IDM.

With 48 instruments per project, you have enough freedom to create elaborate compositions and there is a wide range of sound shaping parameters and effects such as compression, bit crusher, chorus, flanger, and delay.
