Elektron has announced the full release of Overbridge 2, an update to the free of charge software suite offering powerful tools and deep control when connecting compatible Elektron instruments to computers.

Previously in public beta, Overbridge 2 lets you integrate both analog and digital instruments with DAWs more effectively than ever before.

When the beauty of hardware meets the advantages of software, your creativity takes center stage. Experience music-making made more fluid.

Dedicated VSTi and AU plugins connect devices as if they were software instruments, and the stand-alone plugins have built-in multi-tracking capabilities. To DAW or not to DAW. It’s your choice.

Affect digital computer audio with analog hardware, or process individual track streams from an Overbridge device inside your DAW. Stream multi-channel audio directly through the plugins, or use your Overbridge machine as a high-quality sound card. An Overbridge ocean. Stream by stream.
