Featuring sounds lovingly recorded from the Roland Juno 106, Moog Minitaur, and Teenage Engineering Pocket Operators, ELASTIC THUMP oozes with analog butteriness, while the Fender Precision bass guitar, Fender Rhodes 73 keyboard, and a variety of vintage drums add a sheen of dust to the sound. And with 120 MASCHINE Drum Synths crafted by LA-based sound designers MSXII, users can shape and design their own signature beats.
