The Elektron Monomachine is a synthesizer and music sequencer by Elektron. The original (MkI) Monomachine SFX60 (alongside its keyboarded sibling the SFX6) was introduced in 2003. Which is a desktop sound module, and was available as the SFX-6 model, which has a keyboard and a joystick controller. It’s been more than four years since Elektron released its SFX 60 Monomachine, the platypus of sound-generating hardware. It’s a live performance tool, a pattern sequencer, a loop creator and a MIDI synth module, but somehow it got stuck with the too-narrow classification of “beatbox synthesizer.” During the last quarter of 2007 Elektron released the SFX-60 MkII, which is a revision providing higher signal-to-noise ratio, a slimmer design and the ability to add user waveforms, introduced with OS 1.20 in July 2008.
