Analog Heat


#1245

Well it sounds awesome without :slight_smile: But yes, it can’t drop any sooner for me.


#1246

What’s the consensus on the Heat? Worth the bucks or a one trick pony?


#1247

I’ve only had a few hours on the extreme settings and not used it with my other Elektron gear due to not wanting to rewire everything because of OB. But it makes my Reon Driftbox sound like a portal to hell.


#1248

Thanks. Really not sure if it will be better than my soundtoys … toys :slight_smile:


#1249

Haven’t heard the Heat but my opinion is if you are working ITB it’s not worth it as so many good options available anyway e.g. Soundtoys
If OTB great option to process external gear.


#1250

Anyone in Canada managed to snag an AH yet?


#1251

Yes, this is my thinking too. … And yet. Have never been so on the fence about a piece of gear before.

got to use the heat in a live setting this past weekend. i was very impressed with the heat in the studio, on the master bus. on a big system really loud it sounded friggin amazing too. twice in the show i got crazy with the distortion and filters… it was awesome, but mostly just used my static preset. anyway, i’d say the heat is great, im just dying to get it on channels in a DAW situation. i feel like during tracking is where the heat will really be able to change the game. tweaking for each sound and bouncing them down… not patiently waiting.

Had a brief go on a friend’s AH. Half hour session. Confirmed my guesswork on it. Great unit for live/OTB/hands on. Probably going to grab one next year for those reasons. Don’t think I’ll use it via overbridge though when I’m mixing etc. None of the sounds I got really blew me away compared to plugins and id probably rather just use it on the way in to Daw. Post-tracking I’ll still use plugins for the convenience/flexibility/multiple instance. Maybe that’s just me being lazy/impatient in mixing situation though… I tend to have sessions with 40+ tracks. If I was writing more minimal stuff I guess I might feel different.


#1254

Does it have any edge soundwise over something like Fabfilter Saturn?


#1255

Didn’t A/B but didn’t feel necessarily ‘better’ in little time I had, possibly ‘different’ tho. When I grab one and have it in home environment it’ll be easier to compare.


#1256

Arrrrrrgh, why no 3mm holes? Only just realised and I been out to buy a bracket to plonk it in to my setup :frowning:


#1257

i had a dream last night the AH was a bassline box, as well as all the other functions. and i was like maaaan im in ! it sounded huge… haha


#1258

it indeed is…


#1259

Me too… The more i use it the more i want to use it anywhere hahaha and now OB missing a lot to me
Rather to plug, record, unplug - plug, record, agaiiiiiinnnnnn


#1260

There was an Elektron tweet yesterday saying it was “nigh”, whatever that means in their lingo.


#1261

very close to be ready (i google translate it) = Nigh


#1262

I got an early xmas present from my wife…the Valhalla DSP plugin suite! So now I can’t wait for OB, the new sounds will be crazy!


#1263

She not choose for you… isn’t it ? she now Valhalla DSP ?? if yes that’s chance you have, she’s in the music too ? :slight_smile:


#1264

The beta is out for testing now. I know that much.
