Elektron's Analog Four is back in stock at Switched On. The Analog Four is an innovative 4-voice analog synth and sequencer with many thoughtful features. For starters, every synth voice can be sequenced independently for 4-track loops or complete compositions. Every step has what Elektron calls "parameter locks". They allow you to apply wildly different settings for any parameter on each step. For example, you can have reverb hit on just one note in your sequence or have different LFO speeds for every step! The connectivity is amazing, too. You can sequence and sync external instruments via CV/Gate, Midi, or even DIN Sync. The possibilities run far deeper than that; once you dive in and explore the world of Elektron's Analog Four it becomes clear why Future Music Magazine named the Analog Four "Best Hardware of the Year".

Elektron produced a thorough demo video with step-by-step explanations of the features.

Earlier today our friends over at Bleep Labs came out with a new video showing off some of the sounds the Rad-Fi+ breadboarding circuit is capable of. For those who missed the workshop at NMASS earlier this Summer, the Rad-Fi+ is an Arduino based digital delay effect you can breadboard. Breadboarding allows the beginner or veteran shredder to build circuits without having to solder a single component.
We are very pleased to say that John-Mike Reed of Bleep Labs will be revisiting the Rad-Fi+ workshop as part of a new series of educational programs at Switched On. You will leave the Rad-Fi+ workshop with a digital delay effect and some knowledge. The sounds you hear above can be yours at only $45! The workshop takes place this Sunday, July 13th from 7pm-9pm. We hope to see new and familiar faces!
