The crazy Swedish designers at Elektron are aiming to add some fire to the market for effects with the announcement of Analog Heat.
The Elektron Analog Heat is a stereo effects processor that can either be used to enhance or even distort your signals. The effect itself is a fully analogue signal path internally, yet you can use the company’s Overbridge software and process audio in your DAW as though it was a software plugin.
The Analog Heat has eight different stereo effects including an analogue distortion circuit, seven stereo analogue filters and also an EQ.
The effects can be either wired up with jack cables in and out in stereo so that you can effect say a synth, drum machine or a guitar with it. Or you can use the Elektron Overbridge software and use it as an AU or VST in your host DAW; this is all done over a single USB cable and uses the Elektron software to handle all the audio duties.
The Overbridge software also includes the ability to turn the Analog Heat into an audio interface for your computer with a 2 inputs and 2 outputs.
RRP GBP £679 – available later this year in the Fall
