Elektron has announced Analog Heat, a new sound processor that provides a wealth of sound shaping options.
Analog Heat features 8 different analog stereo distortion circuits, a stereo analog multi-mode filter and a stereo analog EQ.
Thanks to Overbridge, a technology seamlessly integrating music hardware with computers, Analog Heat can be used as VST/AU plugin, making it easy to apply real analog processing to DAW sounds and tracks. Overbridge even allows the Analog Heat to be used as 2 in/2 out CoreAudio/ASIO/WDM sound card.
“With the Analog Heat we are offering musicians an invaluable tool that will greatly benefit their existing gear. 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. Finally a distortion effect plug-in providing that inimitable and authentic analog sound”, says Jonas Hillman, CEO of Elektron.
Analog Heat features
- 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.
Analog Heat will ship this fall, priced at $749 USD/799 EUR/£679 GBP.
