Analog Heat


#1205

I wish there were a way to make it more subtle. I love that synth.


#1206

But on distortion stage 1 o 2 this is quite nice possible in interaction with the osc levels .

ok, now with the added AH the Xenophone is an even more incredible wonderful fat machine.


#1207

Ah, yes I noticed that; I thought that was my secret technique :wink: I’m sure the AH is bringing a much welcome element to everything. I opted to cancel my preorder, and wait a bit. I’m eager to hear everybody’s demos of the AH though.


#1208

i’m sure you will LOVE it :wink:


#1209

I think i will use the heat also like a “isolater” on rotary mixers, with its filters and eq


#1210

Thanks :slight_smile: Sounds like you have some great stuff to compare it to. I’d love some Chandler outboard!


#1211

unfotunately i was so stupid to sell the tg2 and the pair of germanium eqs (chandler) when i gave up “big studio” plans.
;(

and i also was short before selling my jd-xa the last days (because i am so annoyed about Roland releasing no new OS)
so today i took it out the box and plugged it into the Analog Heat. Now i keep it. My god… that elektron box is a complete game changer.

Very good video


#1213

Very cool. Sounds great. Would love to see someone do something like this and at the same time compare it to the best saturation/distortion plugins. I’m still on the fence feeling like it’s a luxury item for my own needs/situation but if it’s proven to sound noticeably better/offer alternative stuff than plugins then that could change pretty fast.


#1214

Hmmmmm … I was going to wait until mid-2017 for this one, mainly because I wanted to be certain that Overbridge works out on it … but … Black Friday? A nice discount and I’ll definitely pull the trigger.


#1215

What this thing does to the MD is insane! Cannot wait for the OB update to drop, that will be the happiest day of my sad life.


#1216

Friend of mine just grabbed one. Interested to check it out at weekend.


#1217

It really does transform whatever goes through it, particularly the round fuzz and mid drive circuits. The envelope follower and LFO turn it into a sort of hybrid effect/instrument. It’s a great deal of fun and very inspiring. And I was pretty skeptical, thinking I may as well get one while I can, but will probably flip it. Definitely won’t flip it.


#1218

Funny sometimes i really like the clean sound of the 80’s :smile_cat:


#1219

Apologies if this has been covered already somewhere. But can the inputs of the Heat be processed independently ?

I mean one effect on the Left channel and another on the Right and then output to their respective channels. Or is it just one single effect split over a stereo pair ??


#1220

Yes, sadly.


#1221

Ok. Well that was a missed opportunity.


#1222

At least, so far. Maybe separate L/R controls could be added in a future update.

For now, at least there is the FRQPAN parameter in the filter that allows differential cutoff frequency between the two channels, and is a target for MIDI CC messages, CV input, and internal modulation.


#1223

year but all other better chains will costs a lot more like api, manley, tubetech…


#1224

Elektron, when will Overbridge work with the Analog Heat?
