Things get even more interesting, though, when you fire up your DAW. VST and AU plug in versions of Overbridge give you access to your Elektron gear from within apps Ableton Live, Logic, Bitwig or Studio One just like it was any other virtual instrument. You can save settings a presets to a project, so you don’t have to remember where you had all your knobs set every you pick back up that half-finished song. And it will even capture multi-track audio. So, if you’re using your Digitakt for drums, you can easily capture your bass drum, snare and high hat separately. You could even do something like use a complex sequencer or LFO in your DAW to control your external gear.
One of the more exciting uses is to route your computer’s audio out through your Elektron devices. So, you could take an all-digital, in-the-box creation and feed it out through an Analog Heat or Analog Rytm, for instance to get a little bit of analog warmth and edge on it.
