Distortion isn't the only tonal characteristic offered on the plate here; the pedal also features bass, midrange, and treble controls, as well as a knob that can sweep between different midrange frequencies. In a static position, this knob affects the Mid knob, but hook up an expression pedal to the appropriate 1/4" jack and you can sweep through the midrange with your foot, accomplishing a sort of wah effect.
An additional 1/4" expression jack, labelled "Exp Gain," allows you to create gain swells. With a pedal hooked up in the manner, you can crescendo into the full glory of a distorted tone, rather than merely turning the pedal on and off. For further control, the Analog Drive can both accept and send MIDI messages via 5-pin DIN ports. A power supply is included with the pedal.
In 1997 a handful of students at the university of Gothenburg in Sweden made their first prototype of a synthesizer, based on the sound chip found in the Commodore 64 home computer. The finalised prototype became a marketable product, which made the name Elektron known all around the world. From the highest-standard engineering through the solid industrial design to the sheer time and care spent testing each individual instrument before shipment, quality pervades every Elektron product - and that is to say the least.More Elektron products
