The compact unit has a range of eight different stereo analogue distortion circuits, ranging from discreet to in-your-face, as well as modulation sources including an assignable envelope and assignable LFO. All of these tools are designed to allow the user to easily mould rhythmic textures and beats, applying the effects to any sound source, be they samplers, drum machines or synths.
Using Overbridge, a technology that integrates hardware and software components, allows the Analog Heat to be used as a VST/AU effect plugin. When connected to a computer, the unit can function as a two-in-two-out sound card, even while processing DAW audio, allowing you to continue to make music wherever you go.
