Elektron Overbridge 1.0 released, but for Ableton Live only

Elektron has the first steps towards fully releasing Overbridge by announcing version 1.0, which is available for Ableton Live from today.

Overbridge is the Swedish firm's software application that bridges the gap between its hardware and your DAW. Edit and browse functions from any one of Elektron's analogue range are made available within a VST instrument, and the hardware itself can perform as an audio interface, all over USB.

The announcement also sees other host DAW versions entering into the public beta phase. Cubase, Logic, Bitwig, Maschine or Reaper owners can sign up for the Overbridge public beta here. Those of you who are running Ableton Live can navigate to the Elektron website to download version 1.0 of Overbridge.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
