Elektron today introduced the Analog Heat – a hardware effects processor that features 8 different analog stereo distortion circuits, a stereo analog multi-mode filter and a stereo analog EQ.
“By adding analog sheen or grit, sounds often become more exciting and interesting — and this is exactly the forte of the Analog Heat. For computer based musicians, the Overbridge integration will prove incredibly useful,” says Jonas Hillman, CEO of Elektron. “Finally a distortion effect plug-in providing that inimitable and authentic analog sound”.
- Eight stereo analog distortion circuits — The eight stereo analog distortion circuits have been designed to provide excellent sound shaping opportunities, as well as to fully complement each other. They are capable of applying everything from warm tape-like saturation to harsh over-the-top distortion.
- Filter, EQ, modulation — To further affect incoming signals, the stereo analog multi-mode filter and the 2 band stereo analog EQ are available. Modulation sources include an assignable envelope and an assignable LFO, making it easy to create rhythmical textures and re-shape beats.
- Overbridge — The Overbridge technology effortlessly brings the sound and capabilities of the Analog Heat to DAW environments. Connect the Analog Heat to a computer via USB and use it just like a VST/AU effect plug-in. Overbridge makes analog processing of individual sounds, tracks and even complete mixes a fully integrated and rewarding experience.
