Elektron Monomachine SFX60+ MKII Reviews5.0/5.0 based on 3 customer reviews
Sequencer, synthesizer, and beat machine in one box. Texture, edge, and refinement you won't find anywhere else. Appropriate for tearing down walls.
The Elektron Monomachine SFX60 MKII represents the pinnacle of in-the-box synth sequencing. Imagine having Access Virus sound quality in a drum machine styled box - you can make it absolutely pound! If you're buying Elektron, you know you're getting the best quality sound, the best quality components, and getting a machine that will last you a lifetime. I believe it is the best of its class and will satisfy any musician's love for synth.

Straight up analog BooM!I'm from the late 90's groove box error.
Got away from those things years ago! piling
Up one sound on top of another always turned into mud
On those things!
Electron on the other hand is straight analog power!
Easy to make a separation on every track. Effects never lose
Any kinda depth. If wanting to add one if these to your DAW
Bottom line plug and play!

Both Future & Bulletproof!!This box is intended for experts. People who want to create sounds from scratch. I recently purchased an MKII and I feel very secure and future proof with this box. Although the learning curve is steep, the results in the end will be remarkable. Top producers in the world use these to create sounds that are impossible to achieve with software. BELIEVE ME.

Super Synth Power!The Monomachine is one of the best synths I've ever worked with, delivering a huge punch in a small package. I've learned to never judge a book by it's cover. Six individual tracks are employed to create vast sonic soundscapes using any one of the synthesis methods available. The beat box style sequencing allows instant programability. Learning the basics takes only seconds.
The REAL power of this machine lies within the parameter locks, enabling sounds to transform in real time, creating new and exciting textures that are seldom heard. Maybe you only want an LFO on one specific note in a sequence or want to employ one of the effects on that same note (or others). This is easily achieved and with ease. Any of the available parameters may be locked in placed on a note by note, track by track basis, turning some of the most basic synth sounds into strange, far out and complex layers.
Once you get to know the Monomachines landscape, you'll be tweaking knobs and taking your sounds all over the audible spectrum into places they've never gone. Solid construction allows for mass annihilation of buttons and knobs and is the perfect center piece for any live show. The internal 6 track midi sequencer also makes this the perfect brain for the rest of your gear, ensuring you never miss a beat.
As someone who is heavily invested in computer music, this brought me away from my mouse and back to the basics my predecessors reminisce. If you want a hands on approach to making music, this is good as it gets. If you're lonely, simply program this beast to talk to you.
