Elektron Model: Cycles 6 Track FM Synth Groovebox

Six track FM based groovebox

Scale angles dense and jagged, glide over plains vast and fluid, or sink into mists of dissonance. To model is to shape the formless. Model:Cycles is a six track FM based groovebox that brings exploring into the heart of sound sculpting.


  • Six-track groovebox with FM engine
  • Powerful Elektron sequencer - up to 64 steps
  • Integrated delay and reverb send FX
  • Unifies percussive and melodic synth sounds
  • Lightweight and portable with an intuitive layout

    With six unique Machines in one lightweight unit you can effortlessly mould rhythm and melody across the digital spectrum using instant, tactile controls. Exploration made attainable.

    Define the formless The six Machines of the digital FM engine are unique to Model:Cycles, and cover both percussive and melodic synths, allowing you to make full, varied compositions. The four core Synth Controls put the tools of sound sculpting right in front of you, altering the behaviour of each Machine differently and letting you push them to the limit. Every sound has a start, where will you take it?

    Dedicated × 12 Dedicated knobs let you twist each Machine far and wide with wild, unexpected results waiting to be discovered. Use Control All to heave a parameter to the extreme and back again across every track. Elektron’s powerful sequencer gives you the freedom to record every move live or program the sounds and parameters of your composition one step at a time.

    Light weight, heavy sound Whether you use it as a versatile live instrument or groovebox on the go to pick up and craft full-blown compositions away from your studio, exploration has rarely felt so convenient and unimpeded.
