Following on from their very recent Analog Heat musical distortion effect machine, Elektron have today announced the brand new Analog Drive. Featuring eight different analog distortion circuits, this 100% analog distortion stompbox brings pedal power for guitar, amp, mono synths and drum machines in a unique way.
Here's what Elektron tell us about the new Analog Drive in their official press release:
Swedish music hardware company Elektron today announced Analog Drive, a 100% analog distortion stompbox featuring no less than eight different analog distortion circuits. Designed to bring out the most of any guitar/amp combo or mono synthesizer, the sheer flexibility and engineering behind the analog distortion circuits makes it a powerhouse of a pedal.
“Analog Drive represents something completely new. The eight different analog distortion circuits makes the Analog Drive the most flexible stompbox there is. And it sounds just beautiful. It is the perfect match for any guitar rig and does wonders for mono synthesizers and vintage drum machines too. There is nothing like it”, says Jonas Hillman, CEO of Elektron.
The sheer sonic range of the Analog Drive, courtesy of the eight different analog distortion circuits, is in itself a marvel. One stompbox harboring so many tone shaping opportunities: unheard of until now. Analog Drive is a bottomless well of new sounds.
Enhance your amp with the 3 band analog EQ. The mid band is sweepable, which is very handy for dialing in the perfect EQ setting. The mid EQ can also be controlled with an expression pedal, making it easy to create analog wah-like sounds.
The possibility to store up to 100 user presets will make the live gig flow smoothly. And if you rely on MIDI during your performances, the Analog Drive delivers. All settings are fully controllable via MIDI and it can even send MIDI program change messages.
Analog Drive retails for $379/€399/£349. It is immediately available for purchase. Delivery times are estimated to 5-7 business days.
