Elektron Monomachine as a Guitar Processor Part I

This is the Elektron Monomachine synthesizer. We're running our Strat into the external input, using the "Thru" machine. There are a lot of effects you can use to process external sources in the Monomachine. In this example we start by using the internal delay. The Monomachine has a built in sequencer and we've set it to play 8th notes. You can adjust the decay time, giving you choppy tremolo effects. You can also adjust the attack time which can give you some backwards guitar sounds. There are lots of possibilities in this synth for processing. In the next video we'll play with rhythmic variations, sample rate reduction and some cool LFO tricks.
