Syntakt Demo and Overview
In this video Matthew Piecora (aka EZBOT) shares an informative overview and demonstration of the Elektron Syntakt.
Elektron’s Syntakt is a 12 track drum computer and synthesizer - a sonic metropolis that melts analog and digital synthesis into one instrument of outrageous opportunity. All your sound crafting, sequencing, and performance needs are fulfilled in an all-round music mega-box that fits in your lap.
Syntakt is a drum specialist, full of percussive possibilities, but its 12 tracks can be used for melody, harmony, and bass sounds too. Experience epic sounds from the past, pulling others into existence from the future, using over 35 analog and digital machines. For the uninitiated, machines in the Elektron universe are special sound generators - synthesizers inside your synthesizer.
Affect the sound of each machine with the intuitive and playful graphics. Select and route your tracks, and external inputs, through the FX track. You've got delay, reverb, analog distortion and filters, and a couple of LFOs to play around with. Run wild and free with the four expressive modifiers, unleashing your sounds with different velocities, retrigs, and varied settings of other parameters. Access a variety of different scales via the keyboard mode - some familiar faces and some maybe a little less familiar - helping you discover new places and enabling you to take things to another level. And last, but by no means least, the world class 64-step Elektron sequencer lets you bring dynamic soundscapes into existence.
The streets of Syntakt are never-ending, the neon lights are never-dimming, its underground is fathomless. Discover worlds within worlds. Adore now. Explore forever.
