Elektron launch Analog Heat +FX

Analogue and digital effects unit with flexible routing

Elektron Analog Heat +FX

Elektron have announced the release of Analog Heat +FX, a new multi-effects processor that combines the analogue distortions of their Analog Heat MkII with digital effects, modulation and the ability to customise the signal chain.

The analogue saturation section of the Elektron Analog Heat +FX follows the blueprint of their Analog Heat stereo distortion processor. The user can select between eight different 'Heat Levels', each being a separate analogue distortion circuit ranging from a subtle clean boost to harmonic fuzz or high gain settings. There is a stereo analogue 7-mode filter section with frequency and resonance controls, as well as a noise gate and 2-band EQ.

Elektron have included comprehensive digital effects in the Analog Heat +FX. Reverb, delay, chorus, warble, bass focus, bit and sample rate reduction effects are all here, as well as a compressor. Another brand new feature is the Flow page, which allows the user to quickly rearrange, mute and unmute effects in the signal chain, presented on the OLED screen much like a virtual pedalboard. This is also where presets can be saved into any of the 512 preset slots.

Pressing the Mod button opens the modulation controls, offering users a lot of scope for even more sound-shaping. This section features an envelope follower and three LFOs, with each LFO being multi-waveform and having two possible destinations.
