Elektron Overbridge for Analog Rytm (Public Beta Version) Posted on 17 Jul 08:46 , 0 comments

Ok Analog Rytm owners... here we go!

Overbridge is now available for the Analog Rytm, which should make a lot of people very happy. It also means I'll be busy this week testing it out. The Overbridge public beta version is available from the Elektron website. 

Although Elektron make hardware machines, Overbridge gives a new flexibility for controlling the brilliant hardware they make. Hardware interface, analog sound, and the convenience of computer editing. 

In terms of features, the video says it all:

The sample browsing and loading should save some time and make life easier. And, you can now use the USB port to easily multi-track the sounds directly into your DAW. (Note the Fireface 400 multitrack interface innocently sitting on the sidelines... won't be needing that for recording now! But I'll be keeping mine as it sounds so good.)

Also, with Overbridge, it will now be dead simple to add whatever VST effects you want to all your tracks, all separated and ready to go. Want to add side-chain compression from the kick drum? Sure, why not. All kinds of automation and patch management can all be done via the computer now. 

If you use Overbridge, what do you think of it so far? Can't really go wrong here, and there has never been a better time to jump on board the Elektron hardware train. All aboard!
