Hey MPC Heads,

anyone using one in their workflow?

I am currently using an MPC Live 2 (Stand Alone) and am wanting to keep my workflow to that as I am not eager to have to integrate a DAW. I am happy with a lot of the internal effects on the MPC and feel they can mostly get the job done for a good mix. But am looking at the Analog Heat to add some extra punch and warmth where I feel I could use it. Just curious who is using one?

I know there are a lot of amazing plugins for DAW's, the UAD's have some really nice options but again, trying to work OTB so wondering how the heat stacks up to some of these advanced plugins.

Thanks for any info!

Just about everything from ELEKTRON is pricy but worth it.

This dude swears by his heat

I’m personally a big fan of the KAOSS AND Pioneer RMX series
Digital is cool for delays/reverbs/scratch FX/etc.
But when it comes to EQ/filters/compression you gotta go analog


The only other thing I would consider is AH
I think this is there entry-level offering

My Analog Heat arrived and all i can say is hot damn, this thing is amazing. Have been processing everything through it and it, well it makes everything sound better and louder and just better. One of my favorite Elektron devices next to the octatrack. worth it for sure.
