Elektron Analog Heat Stereo Analog Sound Processor


Elektron is a name synonymous with analog drum machines and synths. Now they have introduced Analog Heat, their very first pure analog stereo sound processor. What is Analog Heat? Essentially Analog Heat is a desktop hardware distortion, sound manipulator with a stereo analog filter. It the first product of it's kind - I know there are plenty of distortion boxes and guitar pedals around but the Analog Heat is geared specifically to the synth, drum machine and keyboard market instead of adapting guitars pedals. Analog Heat offers an array of recallable analog distortion circuits followed by a really juicy stereo analog lowpass and high pass filter. The unit in conjunction with Elektron Overbridge will work as a plugin within your favourite DAW.
