The Analog Four is the best of two worlds. The power of analog synthesis is enhanced
   with precise Elektron sequencing for a machine par excellence. This is an analog
   synthesizer for the modern age.

   The Analog Four is a four voice analog synthesizer. Analog oscillators and filters
   ensure the most organic sounds imaginable and the Elektron step sequencer caters for
   the innovative sound control. With sequencer features like parameter locks and
   variable length per track, intricate Analog Four compositions can be created quickly
   and efficiently. Add the completely new and incredibly well-crafted effects to the mix
   and experience the next chapter in analog sounds. It just sounds right.

   Not only a splendid sound making device, the Analog Four can also make other gear
   sing. Thanks to the CV/Gate and DIN sync outputs, legacy analog gear can be controlled
   in great detail. Sequencer features like arpeggiators and parameter locks will breathe
   new life in old equipment and make any modular synthesizer rig truly come alive.

   Live performance features are aplenty. The special performance mode gives direct
   access to user-defined parameters and direct pattern change makes it possible to
   change patterns at any sequencer step. The arpeggiator can be instantly toggled on or
   off for swirling melody lines. Improvising when playing live has never been this easy.
   The Analog Four was born for the stage.

   Specification highlights: 4 synth voices. 2 Analog oscillators per voice. 2 Analog
   filters per voice. 1 Analog overdrive circuit per voice. Multiple LFOs and envelopes
   per voice. Elektron step sequencer with parameter locks. Kit and Sound storage.
   Hi-quality effects. MIDI IN/Thru/Out, DIN sync out, 4x CV/Gate outputs. Dedicated
