A different drum
Fuse distinctive analog percussion with samples. Bring in the power of sequencing and performance controls. The Analog Rytm is a one stop solution beat machine.
True analog punch
What really sets the Analog Rytm apart is the analog sound. It has a magic character. The depth of the kick drums, the bite of the snare drums, those cavernous toms, the airy shimmer of the hihats. Fine-tune the sounds to your liking and get working.
Elevated by samples
For ultimate creative versatility you can layer samples on top of the analog drum sounds. Make the beats as smooth, as rough, as realistic or as fantastic as you’d like. The perfect unity of analog percussion and samples simply goes beyond.
When you’ve got your drums ready, record them to the sequencer and play them back. Do it using the pads, or perform detailed programming on the sequencer steps. Really meticulous or totally spontaneous: it’s up to you.

I had to get really creative with routing on my MX-1. Like my Analog RYTM feeds into my TR-8, My digitakt goes into my digitone inputs (which then goes into ports 3+4), I've kept the Digital port free for a someday purchase of an Octatrack. It's also worth possibly using the 4 analog ins as...
