A different drum
Overbridge is the easy way in. For the first time in history analog synthesizers and drum machines can be seamlessly integrated in DAW environments. The magic of using an Elektron Analog instrument as a fully featured VST plugin is a breakthrough experience.
The Analog Rytm is a one stop solution beat machine. Distinguished by the power of analog drum sounds fused with samples. Perfected by the immediacy of drum pads coupled with Elektron sequencing.
True analog punch
The depth of the kick drums, the bite of the snare drums, those cavernous toms, the airy shimmer of the hihats. The meticulously engineered analog circuit designs make the Analog Rytm come alive. Let us be clear. The eight drum voices sound brilliantly deep.
Elevated by samples
For ultimate percussive flexibility, every drum voice can be spiced up with customizable samples. Fill the sample storage to the brim and explore completely new sound territories. The perfect unity of analog drum sounds and samples simply goes beyond.
Twelve drum pads offer a quick and spontaneous way of creating rhythms. And the Elektron step sequencer stands ready for grid based action. The combination gives both instant results and the opportunity of detailed editing. The perfect beat awaits.

Beats with character
Every drum voice comes with a dedicated analog multimode filter and analog overdrive circuit. Reverb and delay send FX add space and depth. And the analog compressor and analog distortion of the master channel ensure proper pump and grit.
The power of machines
A machine is a set of software parameters accessing various parts of the analog circuitry. Each machine generates a specific type of analog drum sound, and as several machines exist, a wide variety of sounds are within reach. Ever felt a thunderous analog FM kick?
The lightning fast digital control system enables features that previously have been impossible in the realm of analog drum synthesis. Change drum sounds, parameter settings – and even machines – per sequencer step and with no audible lag.
The Elektron sequencer
The Elektron step sequencer gives full control over the beat making process. Use sequencer features like parameter locks, micro timing, retrigs, accent, swing, slide, and variable step length per track to create hard-hitting or smooth-sounding beats with ease.
Select a mode
The modes make for a live friendly machine. Activate Scene mode and instantly alter parameters by simply hitting a pad. Play drum sounds as notes with Chromatic mode. Performance mode allows each pad to gradually control multiple parameters.
Room for more
The +Drive of the Analog Rytm allows thousands of patterns, kits, and taggable drum sounds to be saved internally. For sample aficionados, 1 GB of +Drive sample storage provides necessary space for an abundance of user drum samples.
