Great deals on Synthesizers

Elektron has announced that its long-awaited Octatrack DPS-1 Digital Performance Sampler will be available as of December 20th - just in time for Christmas.

Gear4music.com will be receiving stock from the first UK shipment - be sure to get your pre-orders in early to avoid disappointment.

Following years of development, the Elektron Octatrack was announced back in January 2010 bringing much excitement to the electronic music community.

Like the rest of the Elektron range, the Octatrack DPS-1 relies only on its hardware, yet is said to behave like Ableton in a box.

The emphasis of the machine is placed on 'radical audio processing'.

The 8-track sampler takes a fresh approach to sampling thanks to the 'Flex' function which offers realtime destructive editing of samples and even manipulation of incoming audio signals.

The announcement of the new 'Micro Timing' feature which offers up to 1/384th step timing resolutions and the custom LFO Designer allows you to create your own LFO's using a variety of versatile waveform shapes.

As the perfect addition to Elektron's Monomachine and Machinedrum legacy, the Octatrack is set to complete the range and offer DJ's and electronic musicians alike the most creative tools for performance and production.

The Octatrack also ships with a USB cable for quick transfer of samples and a Compact Flash Card filled with 2GB worth of royalty free loops and samples to get you started.
