Jun 18th, 2022, 02:50
Elektron's new drum synth Syntakt merges analog and digital synthesis into a portable 12-track groovebox that offers infinite musical possibilities. With 35 analog and digital "machines", FX, filters, and a 64 step sequencer, Syntakt is a powerful beast with quite a steep learning curve, but Thavius Beck's new course 'Syntakt Explored' shows how to tame this beast one step at a time. The course starts out by explaining how to navigate banks and patterns on Syntakt, how to create a new project, and how to start loading sounds into individual tracks from the sound browser. It covers Elektron's legendary step sequencer, and shows how to add a whole new dimension to patterns using Parameter Locks, Retrigs, Sound Locks, and Mod Trigs. Next, the course dives deeper into Syntakt by exploring its analog and digital track machines, such as Analog Drum and Synth Chord. While Syntakt is, of course, mainly about percussion, it can also get melodic, and that's demonstrated as well. The course gets creative with the FX track, shows how to use randomization, and shares powerful workflow tips and tricks. Elektron fans who want to master the creative possibilities of this powerful box will definitely want to check out this course -- it can be the ticket into the never-ending sonic worlds of Elektron's Syntakt.
