Rhythm is a Breeze
Meet the six track groovebox that offers massive sound in a compact size. You get pretty much all of the Elektron superpowers in a sleek, lightweight, and accessible package. Loads of useful presets and loads of space for your own sounds. The controls are right there at your fingertips. A truly plug-and-play bundle of joy!

Packed with great sounds
The sound engine uses high-quality digital samples. There are 300 preset sounds supplied by Splice, ranging from the familiar kicks, snares, and hi-hats to exotic, never-before-heard ones. With a few tweaks, you can easily personalize any sample until it sounds just the way you want it. Transfer your own samples into it, or use any of the expertly crafted custom sound packs.

Dedicated knobs
As an Elektron first, this machine offers a complete set of tactile controls, with one function per knob. They’re all right there on the front panel; just grab a knob and twist it. Unleash your music spontaneously using the six tough, velocity-sensitive pads. Record your every move live, or punch in your creation one step at a time using the superb Elektron sequencer.

Ready to go
At under one kilogram, you’re getting the benefits of a light and convenient machine that will surprise you with its snarling sonic power.

Key Features
• Control All lets you twist your sounds to oblivion. Then use Reload to take you back to where you started
• Use Parameter Locks to automate parameters. Each step can have a totally different sound
• Load six samples at once – just like a kit. Great when you have made a Pattern with Parameter Locks, LFOs etc… Load six new samples to instantly experiment and come up with unique and unexpected results
• Write basslines and melodies using Chromatic Mode
• New Chance parameter. Chance determines the possibility whether the sequencer steps on a track are triggered or not. Combining Chance with the Control All functionality can lead to many interesting results and happy accidents
• Record sequences with or without quantization. Steps can be micro-timed with individual Swing control per track
• Individual Step Length per track
• Individual Tempo Multiplier per track
• Class compliant USB audio 2.0

Posted in Blog, Computer (Software, plug-ins), Gear    //    Post Date - February 18, 2019

BITWIG’S Dave Linnenbank shows us the new Modular GRID at Winter NAMM 2019.

Bitwig distributed in Australia by https://www.innovativemusic.com.au/

Modularity has been at the core of Bitwig Studio from the beginning. Devices can be nested, clips are containers, modulators exist everywhere, and practically anything can be dragged anywhere. But with Bitwig Studio 3, they are zooming out so you can push in.

The Grid is an open modular environment that powers a family of new devices in Bitwig Studio 3: Mono Grid, Poly Grid and FX Grid. With a vast library of modules and a supersonic workflow, you’ll be creating your own unique sounds immediately, and in high-fidelity. Simply add a Grid device to your project and start patching. It’s fun.
The Grid includes:
• Fully-modular sound design
• Fantastic sound quality
• 120+ modules
• Any signal, anywhere
• Lighting-fast workflow
• 4x-oversampled, stereo signal path

Construct a polyphonic synthesizer from scratch in one session. Create an adaptive audio effect with your signature sound. Experiment with generative drones until you find a new way to perform. Or simply create the undefinable. Patching is effortless, giving full rein to your creativity.
