Bleep bloop, seriously underwhelming. Sounds like someone hit Model:samples with a shrink ray. Enough of the teasers. Facts still matter, especially where money is concerned,

All kinds of speculation. The most logical guesses are firmware updates for DT and OT, allowing for the option to choose machines instead of samples for each channel, and what is most likely coming, Model size versions of their synth series. Interesti g to see what it might be.

It's being announced in 5 days, that's really not too bad for a teaser to drop

My obvious guess is digidrum or model drum

There was a user on Reddit leaking more info but they nuked their account..

d.mn, this sounds like how i like to make Music.


the teasing could point towards a very creativ to use delay......or something with granular capabilities or both in one.
is it a new groove box or a new FX box .......


but my "trust" in elekron went down a gullie on a very rainy day :lol:
........moneymaking@work.......and not idealists@work, what they used to be........back in the day.
For sale / reduced prices ( swiss (we are NON-EU)/ in case it makes sense_ EU/WW)(CHF +- = $):
lowered prices: Dotcom Q960: 650.- / Q119: 420 / ( i also have one or much likely two 19" Frames)
ATV A-Frame incl. Accu and Bag: 830.-, like new, quasi unused.

I think they learned after the RYTM teaser campaign that went on for months, IIRC.

Well in their defense it went on for months prolly cuz they were trying to get overbridge to compile 8-)

My guess is some kind of video synth, because thats something we're all screaming for.

NO IT´S **NOT**A VIDEO SYNTH !!!





sorry, i just had to :hihi:
;)



i think working carefully,
should it be possible to do such a (similar) demo also with the OT.
one would had to use neighbour machines much likely

Coincidentally, Polyend sent out a cryptic email and then put a teaser video up as well.

Could these possibly be related? Nah... don’t think so.

Looking forward to this! My guess is that it won’t be a digidrum - might be too much overlap with the digitakt. But let’s see

If it is a digidrum I am hoping for something that can crank out thunderous big room techno drums without the need for outboard fx, next to being able to produce glitch or minimal beep boops.

since "machines" are what they call their algorithms i'd guess it would be some new machines for existing units. and by the sound of it, physical modeling.

If it was, that might push me over the edge to get a Digitakt. Need something to sequence my Nord drum 3, although the rd808 will do for now

I can't afford that now with my lzx habbit, and my love for Elektron machines would mean a fire sale....don't even go there

Before he suddenly deleted his Reddit account, Red Means Recording (pwmpwm etc.) posted:

That said, could well be more than one thing being announced...

Excited to see what is it, a new unit that combines the machinedrum and monomachine sounds and functionality would be dope. :hihi:

Oh I don’t think they will ever do that. It makes to much sense, too many people want it, and too many people would buy it. :sarcasm:

If MnM and MD combined, please please please at least 16 midi machines.
And if a pure sequencer please 32 midi machines
