Six Tracks of Acclaimed Elektron Sampling and Sequencing

There's never been an easier way to get into Elektron's acclaimed sequencing and sample mangling than with the Model: Samples groovebox. Featuring six tracks, 300 high-quality sounds from Splice.com, and dedicated knobs for every function, Model: Samples offers a ton of potential for hands-on creativity. Record your ideas on the fly with 6 velocity-sensitive pads, or dive into the sequencer to craft your ideal patterns. With 1GB of storage, you have plenty of space to load your own custom samples. And each of the six audio tracks can be a MIDI track to sequence your other hardware, which means the Elektron Model: Samples could be the master sequencer you've been looking for.

Designed for hands-on control

While it's one of Elektron's most compact units, the Model: Samples groovebox is designed for maximum hands-on control. Every function has its own dedicated knob, ready for spontaneous tweaking. And thanks to Elektron's comprehensive sequencing capabilities, every knob movement can be recorded as part of your patterns.

Ready to sequence your other synths too

Each of Model: Samples' six audio tracks can also be a MIDI track for controlling your other synths and drum machines. It features two minijacks for MIDI in/out/thru, allowing you to integrate it with your rig any way you like. Whether you want to use it as a master sequencer, a slave to your existing rig, or as a production center on its own, Model: Samples is a capable groovebox.


Model: Samples offers six audio tracks (which can each be a MIDI track as well), each with a corresponding velocity-sensitive pad for playing samples. Each track features one sample playback engine, one resonant multimode filter, and one assignable LFO. Tracks can be sent to delay and reverb send effects. The sequencer offers up to 64 steps per track and supports both real-time and grid recording for notes and parameter settings. Model: Samples can store up to 96 projects, with up to 96 patterns contained in each project. And 1GB of onboard storage gives you plenty of space to load your own custom samples.
