From Our Research Team:
An Awesome Combination of Analog Synth and SequencerThe Elektron Analog Four is a welcome addition to any modern production studio. Elektron engineered this 4-voice powerhouse with a punchy and organic-sounding fully analog signal path, and precise digital technology for components such as the envelopes and LFOs - the best of both worlds. Making the most of Analog Four's sound engine is a breeze, since Elektron has completely filled the front panel with hands-on control. Analog Four also has a powerful step sequencer that can even breath new life into your old analog gear, thanks to control voltage connectivity. If you've been waiting for the classic combination of a 4-voice analog synth and sequencer, wait no longer: the Elektron Analog Four is here.
Elektron Analog Four gives you the best of analog and digital
We synth enthusiasts at Sweetwater love analog circuitry for its warm, punchy sound, but we also know that digital control of certain jobs provides unmatched precision - and the Elektron Analog Four is a perfect example of engineering that takes full advantage of this. In the Analog Four, both oscillators of each voice are analog, including their elaborate waveshaping. Their pitches, however, are controlled digitally - along with the noise generator.
Modulate your sound with filters, envelopes, LFOs, FX, and more
The two filters of each voice (and the overdrive circuit between them), are fully analog. Ditto the amplifiers. The envelopes and LFOs - they're digital, a design that allows them to venture well into the audible range without nasty artifacts. The signal path from the oscillators to the audio outputs - that's totally analog, as well as the signal path from the external inputs to the audio outputs. The digital send effects run parallel to the main audio path; their wet signals are mixed with the dry analog signal before everything reaches the main output stage.
Elektron Analog Four - Synth Voice Features:
Six-track sequencer lets you control your entire studio efficiently
The Elektron Analog Four's sequencer sports six tracks, the first four of which are synth tracks (with each track controlling a synth voice). Track 5 is your FX track, controlling chorus, delay and reverb. Finally, you use the CV track to control the signals sent from the Analog Four's two CV/Gate outputs. Naturally, the parameters of all track types can be parameter-locked. The Elektron sequencer lets you control your analog studio in the most efficient way possible.
Dedicated CV track and four CV/Gate outputs let you control all your analog gear
You can sequence your analog gear with CV inputs using the Analog Four's dedicated CV track. The four CV/Gate outputs pass control voltages for controlling any parameter or pitch (V/oct andHz/V), Trig and Gate pulses for trigging envelopes (V-trig and S-trig), and repetitive clock pulses for syncing analog sequencers, LFOs, drum machines, and more. You can use the Analog Four's external inputs to filter external signals. You can even link the filters to form a parameter-lockable filter bank with up to eight filters (4 ladder and 4 multi-mode filters).
Elektron Analog Four - Sequencer Features:
Robust connectivity gives you flexibility in rigging up your studio
Elektron's Analog Four gives you robust connectivity so you can easily integrate it into your modern studio. The Analog Four's headphone output, two main outs, two external inputs, two dual CV/Gate outputs, USB port, and MIDI in/out/thru ports (with DIN sync out) let the Analog Four play nice with everything from legacy modular synths to Macs and PCs.
The Elektron Analog Four gives you fat, punchy sound and tons of control!

Stacking analog track that didn't end up sounding like mud.. So I purchased the analog 4. Same results! I'm pleased to not always be working with VST's and starring at a computer monitor for hrs on end.. Plus I can control all my CV out board patch synths as well! Worth the money! close [-]
by Dustin fromThe Analog four shines in the sequencer department. Being able to sequence my other CV compatible gear along with the very good sounding A4 synth engine is really incredible. With the ability to assi... read more [+]gn almost any parameter to every step of the sequence you have much more than 4 analog voices. There is really 2 osc per voice plus 1 sub osc per voice that can even be tuned to a 5th. So you have 12 Osc per step times 64 steps plus the ext input.

I really like the drum sounds that can be created. To my ears my Moog Slim Phatty has a more pleasing and musical sound in the monosynth department but the Analog 4 complements it nicely.
The A4 also has beat synced LFOs transmitted through CV.
To purchase a CV controller, An analog sequencer, and a 12 voice analog synth would cost much more than the A4. close [-]
Fantastic Bread and Butter Machine
by Ben from United StatesFor nearly two years, I owned a DSI Tetra 4-voice analog synth. While the thing was a fantastic poly synth, what I really wanted was to exploit it's capacity to run 4 monophonic channels simultaneousl... read more [+]y. Unfortunately, the Tetra's lack of a competent software editor rendered this wish obsolete, and the tiny programming screen meant that doing it in the box was just not reasonable.

Then came the Analog Four. I knew that the synth gods had heard my cries, and they released this wonderful little beast. Unlike the Tetra, this one has no poly mode (for now), but what it does have is so much better. Four independent step sequencers with 2 Osc, 24db/oct analog filter and multimode analog filter, envs, lfos, and the lot. It is truly a great piece of kit, and the sound is quite usable and functional. It lacks some grit and rawness that the Tetra had, but its functionality is unmatched for step sequenced analog synths. Of course, you can make 303 acidlines and fat analog kicks. But, there is so much more hidden inside this bad boy. Get one and explore! You won't regret it. close [-]

The synth engine is a basic solid analog design, but the modulations capabilities are what put this thing in another league. The price is really very reasonable, considering what you get. close [-]
