Elektron Machinedrum SPS-1UW+ Product Description

The Machinedrum UW is a groundbreaking digital drum machine. It combines extremely flexible drum synthesis methods with a sampling engine. The powerful sequencer is the icing on the cake.

Digital synthesis power

The repertoire of the Machinedrum UW is vast. Merge the essence of old school drum computers with chaotic FM percussion. Simulate the behavior of acoustic drums or expand the sound beyond reality. Your imagination is the only limit.

Twelve bit grit

Cover samples in the dirt from the 12-bit sampling engine and make them grow. When sampling, the features at hand are immediate. Rearrange the recorded audio instantly. Reverse. Pitch up. Pitch down. Retrig. This is creative sampling.

Live and direct

Live performers have a trusty companion in the Machinedrum UW. The ultra-flexible sequencer allows for total and detailed control of all your sounds and even of external MIDI gear. All in real time. Without ever having to stop playback.
