Digital percussion synthesis at its finest

The Machinedrum is a drum machine based on five original drum synthesis methods. With a razor sharp focus on percussion, it contains everything needed to create the perfect beat right out of the box.

Synthetic perfection
The range of capable drum synthesis methods serve as the foundation of the Machinedrum. The diverse methods, covering everything from legacy drum sounds to experimental percussion, cater for an impressive sound palette.

Creative sequencing
The splendor of the Machinedrum sequencer lies in the way it operates. All important parameters can be affected and recorded. And thanks to the flexible nature of the Machinedrum it can also be used to sequence external MIDI gear.

Proper processing
Each track has its own effect block. It consists of an amplitude modulator, a 1 band EQ, a flexible resonant multi mode filter, a sample rate reducer and a distortion effect. Add the 16 LFOs to the mix for seriously exclusive beats.

Stats at a glance
- 16 drum voices
- 1x specialized machine per voice
- 1x amplitude modulator per voice
- 1x 1-band EQ per voice
- 1x multimode filter per voice
- 1x sample rate reducer per voice
- 1x distortion per voice
- 1x LFO per voice
- 5 different drum synthesis methods
- 16 track Elektron sequencer
- Reverb, compressor, delay, EQ master FX
- MIDI sequencing
- 3 year Elektron warranty


The sequencer
The sequencer turns beats into unique compositions. Use the numerous LFOs and the powerful parameter lock feature, where each drum note can be assigned unique parameter settings, to obtain ever evolving and flowing rhythms.

Track effects
Each Machinedrum track has its own effect block. It consists of an amplitude modulator, a 1 band EQ, a flexible resonant multi mode filter, a sample rate reducer and a distortion effect. All track effects can be used simultaneously.

Master effects
The stereo Master Effects system is comprised of the Rhythm echo delay, the Gate box reverb, the Dynamix dynamic processor and the Master EQ. The master effects can affect all tracks routed through the main output.

The audio inputs
The two audio inputs will breathe new life in other gear. Process, reshape, modulate, and treat incoming audio with the Machinedrum sound shaping tools. Put that special Machinedrum signature on external audio equipment. Highly rewarding.

MIDI duties
The powerful parameter locks, the LFOs and numerous other functions are available when MIDI sequencing. Nearly all parameters and functions of the Machinedrum are possible to control from external devices as well.
