Thavius Beck is an electronic musician/producer/programmer as well as an electronic music educator who has worked with various artists ranging from Nine Inch Nails to Saul Williams to singer/songwriter Skylar Grey.
The ultimate analog/digital hybrid drum machine just got better. Thanks to its distinctive analog sound and its new sampling capabilities, the Analog Rytm MKII now truly offers limitless sound design possibilities. Join artist and producer Thavius Beck in this 2 hours+ course, and get ready to harness this powerful rhythm maker!
Thavius starts the course with a detailed overview of Analog Rytm's data structure. This is where you learn about projects, kits, patterns, and how everything is organized. He then demonstrates how to start from scratch with a blank template, and how to create, save and load your own projects and kits.
Next, Thavius dives right into the major new feature of the Analog Rytm MK2: sampling! After recording different sounds from his trusty OP-1 synth, he demonstrates how to get creative with sound design, and how to record patterns by playing the pads live, or by programming Elektron's infamous step sequencer. Next thing you know, you'll have your first beat blasting! You'll also learn the best workflows and strategies to get the most of your Analog Rytm MK2, such as using P-Locks, Retrigs, micro timing, Copy/Paste techniques, how to tweak your song live with Scene and Performance modes, and a lot more.
So sit back and join producer and trainer Thavius Beck in this 20-tutorial course, and get ready to become a Rytm expert.
Wow, just watched the entire course again the past two days and I'm always learning something new of remembering something that I had forgotten!! Brilliant, clear, fun and deep tracks for examples. Great to get a take on Thavius' sound world! Feeling empowered and excited!

Such a great overview! Everything was explained really clearly and at a good pace. I feel like after watching dozens of video tutorials on the the RYTM that still made the machine seem overly complex, I finally understand how it works! Thavius is a great teacher.

This is the RYTM mk2 training I was hoping for! Everything was explained clearly and in a concise and linear manner, unlike the countless terrible “tutorials” on YouTube. My only suggestion is that some of the examples in the first half of the videos could have been drastically improved by muting more of the sounds that weren’t being adjusted to better illustrate what you’re doing, as in the later videos. That minor criticism aside, this series got me diving deep into my AR2 in just a couple of hours. Well done!

Excellent educator! Professor Beck keeps it real, relevant, and concise. Gets you up and running quick, all while dropping gems along the way. He effectively demonstrates the creative possibilities without being unnecessarily technical. While he demonstrates clear understanding of the instrument at one point he learns along with you by finding out a new technique by experimenting, showing the instrument is as powerful as your imagination. Bravo
