The Elektron Analog Heat +FX takes the popular effects unit to a whole new level, with an all-new extensive digital effects section and flexible routing.

All the sound colouring features from the Analog Heat MKII are maintained, but you now have the welcome additions of reverb, delay, chorus, warble, bit reduction, and more.

Rather than simply selecting one of the 8 stereo distortion circuits, the Analog Heat +FX now offers more hands-on performance-orientated controls that you might incorporate into your live setup.

When you dive into the digital effects, possibly the most exciting aspect is the customizable signal path. This makes it possible to place the heat circuit or compression anywhere you like in the signal chain as well as bypass any individual effect on-the-fly.

In addition, there are 512 preset slots to create a library of your own Flow effects chains for instant recall both in studio or on stage. The fun doesn’t stop there though, the Modulation page provides access to a flexible routing matrix and 3 LFOs.

The rear panel remains the same with stereo analogue I/O and a set of ports for CV and expression pedals. It also operates as an audio interface and provides MIDI I/O/T.

It’s unclear whether the Heat +FX will replace the Heat MKII completely, but it does seem likely because it offers so much more creative utility at just $150 more.

    I think they missed an opportunity to put an analog FET compressor in this unit that interacted with the distortion block in some clever Swedish way, maybe with LFO control. Oh well.

    Looks very cool, but those FX are screaming for a step sequencer with parameter locks. I guess that’s still doable via MIDI.
