Akai Rhythm Wolf Analog Drum Machine & Synthesizer

Analog Groovebox with Character

Built like a tank with an all-metal chassis, 24 control knobs, and wood end caps for a vintage feel, the Akai Rhythm Wolf is a drum machine, bass synthesizer, and step sequencer rolled into one. It operates using a 100-percent analog signal path, and features five drum sounds with adjustable parameters (kick, snare, percussion, and two hi-hats) and a bass synth that doubles as a tone generator. Working alongside the six MPC-style pads, the onboard sequencer’s 16 patterns come in handy during live performance. Looking for that gritty, industrial sound? One turn of the “howl” knob applies global distortion to the entire mix.
