Elektron Machinedrum has Arrived!

I have written about my ongoing work to design a pair of really nice side panels for my Elektron gear (here, here, here). I’ve also mentioned that I’m designing the panels to hold up to 2 machines, but at the moment I only own one (the Analog Four).

Well, rejoice as that has changed as of today. This afternoon my brand new Machinedrum (SPS-1 UW+ MKII) was delivered in the mail.

I placed the order yesterday around noon and in less than 24h the package was delivered by the Japanese postal service. Amazing speed! Below are some pictures of the machine and how it fits with the prototype panels I made.

The good folks at Power Rec threw in a pair of BD headphones, an Elektron t-shirt and a bunch of stickers as well :). Who can resist that?

manualSince I bought it in Japan I got the Japanese manual :). Good thing I can read Japanese!

panels

Set up in the prototype panels I made. The dimensions and screw holes are exactly the same as on the Analog Four.

I will post some tracks and more info once the dust settles around here…
