Elektron Model Cycles Review & Hands-On Demo

The latest loopop video takes an in-depth look at the new Elektron Model:Cycles, a six-track FM-based groovebox.

One thought on “Elektron Model Cycles Review & Hands-On Demo

  1. 90s are back. Design wise stuff looks like used soap again.
    This stuff makes me wonder that all the other massive gear Elektron has produced now seem like even more elite kind of stuff. Meanwhile I’m happy with my Rytm mk1. Perhaps Rytm kind of stuff is more advanced and these new ones would suit nicely in shoegaze bands where rythm instrument is just something simple.
