Generate Great Beats and Make Them Come Alive!Fire up the Elektron Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII drum synth/sequencer and you're treated to a feast of tweakable sounds, patterns, and effects that will inspire you — whether you're in the studio, onstage, or at home! The compact Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII is much more than just a great drum machine; it packs comprehensive drum synth and sequencing functionality into its chassis, while boasting great-sounding effects and even full MIDI support for external control. If you crave those classic-sounding beats but enjoy shaping your sounds, too, Elektron's Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII makes a perfect companion!
Elektron Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII Drum Synth/Sequencer at a Glance:
Assemble inspiring beats and patterns on the fly
The Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII doesn't simply let you shape, tweak, and mangle great drum sounds. Its onboard sequencer lets you put together incredible patterns that can be tweaked on the fly. The secret lies in the way it operates, offering complete control of the sound engine while at the same time being a creative tool in itself. All synthesis, track effect, routing and global effect parameters can be controlled using the sequencer. Of course, all parameter changes can be recorded in real time. With a few button-pushes and some encoder tweaking, a bland 4/4 loop can be turned into a rhythmical assault.
A deep machine that's easy to navigate
The Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII features the kind of easy-to-use interface that inspires creativity in any environment. Despite the depth of its onboard sequencer, the Machinedrum is designed to be as user friendly as possible. Everything is close at hand and ready for action. In addition, individual drums and patterns can be trigged externally. All track parameters can also be controlled externally using the over three hundred available CC commands. Of course, the Machinedrum can control external synthesizers as well. The MIDI sequencing capabilities are immense since it is possible to parameter lock CC messages.
The 64 step pattern sequencer controls both the internal sound engine as well as offering control over external MIDI gear. Up to 128 patterns and 64 kits can be stored internally. The sequencer can also use slide, accent and swing functions to further spice things up. The song sequencer is ideal for arranging a live performance. Use it to chain patterns, create loops, set mutes and even manipulate pattern lengths. With clever use of the song sequencer a pattern can be rearranged in infinite ways.
Apply onboard effects for amazing results
Want to apply effects to your tweaked-out beats? This box lets add effects independently to each of its tracks! Choose between a 1-band EQ, an amplitude modulator, a flexible resonant multi-mode filter and distortion. Use them to add subtle nuances to a sound — or to destroy it completely! The effect parameters can be controlled with the sequencer or with the LFO's, making it possible to easily create ever-evolving rhythmic sounds. The Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII's stereo master effects system is composed of the Rhythm echo delay, the Gate box reverb, the Dynamix dynamic processor and the Master EQ. These effects can affect all sound routed through the stereo output.
Add extra variety to already fantastic sounds and patterns
Inject even more of your own expression into the Machinedrum SPS-1 MKII with parameter locking. This feature makes it possible to add subtle nuances or extreme variations to the sounds in a pattern. A parameter lock basically saves a snapshot of a parameter. For example, all the kick drum note triggers in a pattern could have different decay lengths or different filter settings. Since almost all parameters of the Machinedrum can be parameter locked, this allows for some serious audio experimentation.
