Elektron has released Overbridge 1.0 – new software that’s designed to connect your analog hardware and your music studio software through a single USB connection.
Overbridge 1.0 is only compatible with Ableton Live. Support for all hosts, including Cubase, Logic, Bitwig, Maschine and Reaper, is planned, but still in beta.
Overbridge lets you record multi-track audio from your hardware directly in your DAW, control and automate your hardware settings from your computer, handle patch management, manager your sample library and more.
Here is the official intro to Elektron Overbridge 1.0:
- Multi-tracking via single USB cable
- Overbridge Control Panel
- CoreAudio / ASIO / WDM sound card functionality
- Mac and Windows support
- VST plugin support for Ableton Live
- Supports Analog Keys, Analog Rytm and Analog Four
Overbridge is available now for Ableton Live users as a free download at the Elektron site.
Elektron also today introduced Overhub – a high-performance ‘Multiple Transaction Translator Hub’.
With it, you can connect up to 7 USB devices to a single host computer.
A Multiple Transaction Translator hub merges multiple Full speed (12 Mbit/s) devices together into a high speed (480 Mbit/s) stream.
Details on Elektron Overhub are to come.
