Elektron released Overbridge, which provides real-time control of their Analog instruments via USB.

Discover a new way to explode the musical poten­tial of your software setup by bringing real analog instruments into play. Combine the practicality of your computer with the powerful sound design capabilities of your Elektron Analog instruments. Find out just how fun, playful and uncomplicated expanding your musical world can be.

Design sounds on-screen using an intuitive and dedicated plug-in, or use the knobs and keys on your Analog instrument. Do both at the same time. Enjoy precise synchronisation and outstanding automation. Use the strengths of the Elektron sequencer, and your software sequencer, to get the best of both worlds.

Sounds designed through Overbridge can be accessed at any time by the Analog range of instruments, connected to a computer or not. Design a palette of sounds, unhook your instrument and bring it on stage or into a recording studio. Feel free to roam wherever the music takes you.

The visual appeal and usability of the graphical interface makes analog circuitry more access­ible and fun to manage than ever. Further your understanding and skill by visually manipulating waveforms and filters—and hear the resulting sound instantly. Browse and assign the sounds and samples of your Elektron instrument with ease.
