Elektron Analog Drive – 8 Drive Pedals In One Box: What Do We Think?

Published on Jan 13, 2017
Duration:
39:35:00

In this episode we check out the Analog Drive from Swedish company, Elektron. It is eight separate, analog drive circuits in one box. Digitally controlled, analogue audio path, and programmable to boot: sounds interesting, right?
We thought we’d better compare it to a couple of classics and of course, the Strymon Riverside.
It’s a big unit. But it’s eight pedals in one. Y'know, like one box. But eight pedals. Did we say that yet?
