Ride the Ancient Waves Into the New Year!

Ancient Waves

Sound Pack for Octatrack by Pact Infernal

If you’re looking for nuance and texture in your samples, check out the new Ancient Waves Sound Pack for Octatrack. Drum, bass, drone, pad, and effects sounds suitable for scores and songs with just that little extra bit of intensity. These samples tickle the imagination and stir things up from a fantastic, archaeopsychic past perhaps better left undisturbed.
Created by unrivaled masters of ritual ethno-techno Pact Infernal.

Status update on Digitakt OS

As we approach the end of the busiest year in Elektron’s history, we regret to inform you that, despite tremendous effort, we will not have the new Digitakt OS ready until next year. We’re sincerely sorry for the inconvenience, and we’re working hard to get it done.

We will keep you posted on the development in the new year, and hope for your continued patience and understanding.

Fresh factory content for Octatrack MKII

We’re happy to announce that the Octatrack MKII factory content is now wrapped up and ships with all machines. If you purchased previously, you’re able to download this content free of charge. Visit for instructions.

The Octatrack MKII factory content features a vast and varied selection of loops and one-shots created by renowned sample foundries such as Samples from Mars, Loopmasters, Sample Magic and Origin Sound. In short, it’s the perfect starting block for your next master piece!

OS updates for the Analog MKII units

The operating systems for both Analog Four MKII and Analog Rytm MKII have been updated to 1.30B and 1.40B respectively. Both OS:s introduce some minor changes, and has fixed a number of bugs.

Analog Four MKII OS 1.30B
Analog Rytm MKII OS 1.40B

MusicRadar reader’s poll results are in!

And they are certainly Elektron-heavy. Digitakt snagged the number one position in the drum machine category, closely followed by Octatrack at number three, and Analog Drive was voted the best new hardware effect.

We’re honored, and thank you all for your love!

Elektron Talk: Chris Hülsbeck

Please meet the humble video game composer Chris Hülsbeck. His works have made an impact on nearly every platform since video game music was even possible. Giana Sisters (Commodore 64), Turrican (Amiga, SNES, Megadrive), and Star Wars Rogue Squadron (PC and console) to name just a few. We intercepted him in his motor home (in which he lives, works and travels across the United States) somewhere under the Arizona sun, to talk about life, work, and his brand new Digitakt.
