The Elektron Model:Cycles is a compact groovebox that houses a six-track FM synthesizer engine. With a grid-style interface, intuitive sequencing, and extensive connectivity, it offers a versatile platform for electronic music production and live performance. Its FM synthesis capabilities produce a wide range of unique and dynamic sounds, making it a favorite among musicians and producers for its portability and creative potential.
What is the difference between Elektron samples and cycles?
The main difference between Model:Samples and Model:Cycles is that the Model:Samples generates sounds via samples (either preset sounds or user samples) the Model:Cycles generates sounds via FM synthesis.
If you have a strong preference for the FM synthesis sound and want extensive control over macros, Cycles is the way to go. When it comes to Samples, your modulation options are limited to parameters like pitch, decay, start, length, filter, distortion, effects, and panning. However, with Cycles, you have the exciting ability to modulate macros associated with the synthesizer parameters, and that's where the real creative potential lies. If you're open to allowing the tool to shape the direction, and maybe even the ultimate outcome, we recommend using Samples.
