The Elektron Analog Heat +FX is a professional-grade sound-colouring and manipulation unit designed to empower musicians and producers with extensive processing options. This all-in-one dynamic processor elevates sound transformation capabilities with just a few button presses. Expanding on the design of its predecessor, the Analog Heat+FX introduces cutting-edge digital effects and customisable signal flows, making it the ultimate tool for creating unique timbres and tonal characters.
With its signature Heat block featuring eight analogue stereo distortion circuits and a versatile multi-mode filter, alongside digital effects like chorus, delay, and bit/sample rate reduction, this processor takes your sound design to the next level. The Analog Heat +FX has modulation controls, including an envelope follower, three LFOs, a two-band adaptable EQ, and an onboard compressor. With 512 user preset slots for storing and recalling settings, and a wide range of analogue connectivity options, you can seamlessly integrate the Analog Heat +FX with your favourite synthesisers and effects units.
The enhanced design of the Analog Heat +FX retains all the powerful functions and controls of the original while introducing new ways to interact and create effects. The notable addition of the ‘Flow’ block allows you to customise your signal flow, resulting in unique and inspiring sonic possibilities. Studio-grade digital effects, easily adjustable using the rotary controls, provide maximum precision in shaping your sound. From classic reverb and delay to warble, compressor, and bass focus, the Analog Heat +FX offers many effects at your fingertips. The intuitive control layout and crisp OLED screen ensure effortless navigation and instant visual feedback.
This stereo analogue sound processor offers many ways to shape your sound, with eight distinct analogue circuits imparting unique characteristics. The range of effects achieved is diverse, from clean boost and tape saturation to tube-amp emulation, overdrive, crunch, distortion, harmonic fuzz, and high gain. Integrated filters, EQ, and modulation controls enhance your sound-shaping capabilities, enabling precise processing and transformation. The stereo analogue multimode filter, coupled with the two-band stereo analogue EQ, empowers you to tailor the tone and style of your sound to perfection.
Modulation is a key feature of the Analog Heat +FX, thanks to its assignable envelope follower and three LFOs with two destinations per LFO. These modulation controls open up a world of possibilities, allowing you to interact with other controls and circuits in a hands-on and expressive manner. Combining the filter and envelope can sculpt the frequency range and amplitude threshold to achieve your desired sonic outcomes.
Connectivity is made versatile with the Analog Heat +FX, offering dual ¼-inch balanced I/O for seamless integration with synths, controllers, and drum machines. It also provides a ¼-inch headphone output for private monitoring during live performances and MIDI In/Out/Thru ports for use with MIDI gear such as keyboard controllers. Dual CV/expression pedal inputs are included, enabling integration with modular gear and external expression pedals.
