Elektron - Model:Cycles
Six track FM based groovebox
Model:Cycles is a six track FM based groovebox that brings exploration into the heart of sound sculpting.
With six unique Machines in one lightweight unit you can effortlessly mold rhythm and melody across the digital spectrum using instant, tactile controls. Exploration made attainable.
Define the formless
The six Machines of the digital FM engine are unique to Model:Cycles. The Machines contain both percussive and melodic synths, allowing you to make full and varied compositions. The four core Synth Controls put the tools of sound sculpting right in front of you, altering the behavior of each Machine differently and letting you push them to the limit.
12 Dedicated Knobs
Dedicated knobs let you twist each Machine far and wide with wild, unexpected results waiting to be discovered. Easily snap back to normality, so that the only restriction is your imagination. Elektron’s powerful sequencer gives you the freedom to record every move live or program the sounds and parameters of your composition one step at a time.
Light weight, heavy sound
Whether you use it as a versatile live instrument or groovebox on the go to pick up and craft full-blown compositions away from your studio, exploration has rarely felt so convenient and unimpeded.
