Elektron Analog Four Synthesizer/Sequencer

Analog Four MKII is the new benchmark for analog tabletop synthesizers. Tweaked circuitry delivering deeper bass than ever, new powerful sound control possibilities, dedicated outputs for each voice. Not to mention the ultra durable buttons, the big OLED screen and the premium design. No stone has been left unturned.

This is Analog Four MKII. An analog synthesizer with unmatched sound and flexibility.

Digital mind, analog soul
The Analog Four represents the best of two worlds. Inimitable analog impact combined with razor-sharp digital accuracy. This is an analog synthesizer for the creative artist.

Four voice analog tabletop synthesizer

Analog bliss
Organic, warm, chaotic, exact, and everything in between. Moulding your own unique analog sounds is simple. Program them with precision, or feel free to design as you go. The sonic range is so vast entire tracks can be created from scratch.

From sounds to songs
Four synth tracks and an intuitive step sequencer enable you to easily create and layer melodies. Then play back your composition and immediately reshape it. Change notes, alter sounds, add effects. Something beautifully unique will emerge every single time.

Modular control
Not only a splendid synthesizer, the Analog Four can also make other gear sing. Thanks to the CV/Gate and DIN sync outputs, external analog gear can be controlled in great detail. Make any modular or vintage synthesizer rig come truly alive.

The ultimate analogue groovebox. March 6, 2016
Reviewer: Drazen Saric from Springfield Gardens, NY United States  
There are no obvious alternatives. Elektron's own Monomachine comes to mind, if the analogue part isn't important, and there are various 'X0X' boxes if you want to limit yourself in that way. From there, you progress to digital grooveboxes such as the Korg Electribes or your own combinations of sequencers and synths, for example the Doepfer Dark Time and DSI Tetra. Even the DSI Tempest offers some parallels, although its focus is different to that of the Analog 4.

As a self-contained step sequencer for your analogue needs, the A4 is without peer. The effects are just enough, and the ability to drive external analogues is a major bonus. Indeed, it was while sequencing a Korg MS20 alongside a Roland SH1 and feeding their output back through the effects that the obvious conclusion hit me: the Analog Four is very probably the ultimate analogue groovebox.
