Akai Unveils Rhythm Wolf

Akai recently unveiled a new analog drum machine/bass synthesizer, The Rhythm Wolf, and it looks amazing.


Features of the Rhythm Wolf (according to Akai’s official press release) include:
-5-voice analog drum machine and synth—authentic analog design that references classic rhythm machines and synthesizers
-Legendary analog drum sounds—kick, snare, open & closed hi-hat, and metallic percussion
-Synth-bass module—selectable square or sawtooth wave with classic filter design for warm, deep basses and squelchy leads.
-Onboard 32-step sequencer—classic drum machine workflow for quickly laying down grooves and melodies
-Six genuine MPC pads—responsive controls for sequencing and finger drumming
-Howl knob—custom distortion circuit for additional sound design
-USB-MIDI and MIDI In/Out—flexible MIDI connectivity for easy integration into modern studios
-Gate Trigger—triggering via modular synths, vintage sequencers, or external sound sources
-Independent Audio Outputs—dedicated outputs for the drum machine and synth-bass module for precise mixing

Clearly, the Rhythm Wolf is a beast of a machine that looks like it might give Roland’s upcoming TR-8 a run for its money.

The Rhythm Wolf has a release date of Summer 2020 and has a price tag of $199. For more information on it, check out Akai’s official press release.
