Elektron Tutorial Videos: Cabinet of Curiosities Posted on 12 Mar 01:55 , 0 comments

Sometimes, reading something in a product manual just isn't enough. We all process information differently, so sometimes you need a step-by-step tutorial or video to make more sense of things. 

If you own Elektron gear (or even if you don't), you owe it to yourself to check out a very informative series called "Carl Mikael's Cabinet of Curiosities".  A musician and university professor, Carl Mikael does a great job of explaining various musical gear features so that the concepts can be applied in a musical context.  

Analog Rytm OS 1.22 features a whole new set of features related to trig probabilities and fills. You can now create and trigger percussion fills and add notes that trigger randomly or occasionally (you decide). So, for example, you could make a simple 16-step pattern, but then add some random note triggers for complexity and seemingly unending variations of that "simple" 16-step pattern. Huh? It's probably better to just check out the video below for an in-depth explanation... 

The new fill and trig features in OS 1.22 also work some serious magic on bass or melodic patterns as well, turning a simple 16-step bass pattern into a complex pattern with infinite variations! The new ACID Sound Pack for Analog Rytm is perfect for this. Imagine creating a bass line with randomly repeating notes, accents, and filter variations. Mind-blowing stuff!
