Today on the Elektron-Users.com forum I found a really interesting compilation of music put together by E-U forum members. The compilation is built around Elektron instruments (Monomachine, Octatrack, and my beloved Machinedrum) and is available for a $5 download. There is also a free version with just a few songs. The download is pretty spectacular. It includes 15 tracks, a PDF file of photography and artwork and credits, and a larger PDF file with a veritable “making-of” and information about the project, as well as information for anyone interested in putting a compilation similar to this together.
The project is described like so:
Machine is a unique compilation album and collaborative effort, produced in its entirety by the elektron-users.com community, made primarily with instruments created by the Swedish boutique synthesiser company Elektron. The elektron-users.com forum is a playground for experienced and inexperienced electronic musicians activated by a base of friendly, helpful and creative people from all over the world.
So go here now and cough up your five bucks. It’s good stuff.
