Elektron 37-Key Four-Voice Analog Synthesizer Keyboard with Onboard Sequencer and Effects

Analog Keys is Elektron's flagship analog keyboard synthesizer. Analog synthesis, digital controls and unprecedented playability make it an instrument for the expressive musician.

Premium analog synthesizer
Analog Keys is a four-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer capable of generating the finest basslines, chords, leads and sounds imaginable. The warm and deep tone represents the pinnacle of analog synthesis and the acclaimed Elektron sequencer stands ready to arrange and warp the analog sounds in real time. Complete the experience by treating the four voices with incredibly well-crafted master effects. A new world of sounds awaits.

Performance optimized
Analog Keys is tailor made for the stage. The 37 semi-weighted keys give instant fingertip control of the analog tones, the special performance mode offers direct access to user-defined parameters, and the joystick, capable of controlling up to fifteen parameters, allows for extreme morphing of sounds. Improvising when playing live has never been this easy.

Heart of the rig
Compatibility with other instruments is well catered for. Simply press a button to transform Analog Keys into a MIDI keyboard, ready to control external MIDI gear. Thanks to the dedicated CV sequencer and the CV/gate and DIN sync outputs, analog instruments of both today and yesteryear can be played, sequenced and controlled with precision. Use the multitude of control options to breathe new life into vintage and modern rigs alike.

Impeccable sound
The 100% analog signal path of the four synth voices has been designed for providing a best-in-class analog sound. Two analog oscillators, two sub oscillators, dual analog filters and an analog overdrive circuit per voice provide that inimitable and organic sound. The power is striking.

A voice for every situation
Voice allocation is fully customizable. Analog Keys can be used as a polyphonic four voice synthesizer, as four separate monophonic synthesizers, in a four note unison mode with user defined pitch spread between the voices, or anything in between. Lush chords and huge mono sounds: have it all.

Dual filter force
The 4-pole low pass ladder filter and 2-pole multi-mode filter of each voice are incredible tools when shaping sounds. To add more sonic crunch, the filter section also contains a fully analog overdrive circuit. The saturation can range from gentle warming to total destruction. All bases are covered.

Brilliant effects
The effects section of Analog Keys has been constructed from the ground up and is a perfect match for the strong analog tones. Use the Wideshift Chorus, Saturator Delay and Supervoid Reverb for situating sounds in acid cathedrals, the deepest abysses and head-spinning rotating rooms or for simply adding a final, subtle, audio finish. They make things shine.

Total sound control
The critically acclaimed Elektron step sequencer gives full control over synth and effects parameters. Create patterns and songs with ease and use parameter locks to lock track parameters to specific values. It is even possible to change sounds per sequencer step, an unbeatable method when creating expressive patterns. The dedicated track sending CV/gate signals is perfect for sequencing external analog instruments. Analog Keys is in control.

Wild modulation
The internal architecture opens up for extensive modulation possibilities. Each synth voice offers two assignable LFOs and envelopes, AM cross-modulation, oscillator sync and dedicated LFOs for both pulse width modulation and vibrato. The range of potential sounds is as wide as it possibly can get.

Massive storage space
The +Drive is the secret behind the vast internal space of Analog Keys. Thousands of patterns and kits can be stored and recalled with ease. The over 4,000 Sounds, all taggable and easy to locate, that can reside in the +Drive sound library are always close at hand. Save time by avoiding tedious recreation of analog sounds. This machine is instant.

Connections, connections
Individual stereo outputs for each voice plus a main output give audio routing freedom. The two audio inputs allow radical analog filtering and effects treatments of external sounds. Two dual CV/gate outputs, a USB port and MIDI ports capable of sending DIN sync means Analog Keys can communicate with everything from legacy instruments to computers. Get connected.

Includes Ableton Live Lite license
Live Lite is a customized version of the music making software Ableton Live. With selected instruments and effects plus all the essential workflows of Live, it provides a fresh and easy way to write music, record audio and produce your own songs.
