Following the in the footsteps of the Model:Samples, Elektron has introduced its new Model:Cycles 6-track FM synthesizer based groovebox.

Bringing exploring into the heart of sound sculpting, the Model:Cycles comes with 6 unique Machines in one lightweight unit, letting you mold rhythm and melody across the digital spectrum using instant, tactile controls.

“This little groovebox is designed to bring something new to the table,” said CPO Jon Mårtensson Elmrud.

“Immediacy and excellence. Minimalism and soft brutality. An otherworldly flair maybe? All are part of its essence. Its alignment is definitely chaotic neutral. Ideas and sounds realized through the tactile interface, the streamlined workflow and the refined FM sound engine will be of a different kind. We welcome the strange and wonderful Model:Cycles to the world!”

The six Machines of the digital FM engine are exclusive to Model:Cycles: Kick, Snare, Metal, Perc, Tone, and Chord. They cover both percussive and melodic synths, allowing you to make full, 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.

Dedicated knobs let you twist each Machine far and wide with wild, unexpected results waiting to be discovered. Use Control All to heave a parameter to the extreme and back again across every track.

Elektron’s powerful sequencer with up to 64 steps gives you the freedom to record live or program the sounds and parameters of your composition one step at a time.

Model:Cycles is priced $299 USD.
