#86 Intro to Elektron Overbridge 2.0 with Mark Mosher Wednesday April 29th, 7PM MDT

Hi Mark Mosher here. I’ve been a hardcore Elektron user since 2013 so I was excited that Elektron finally released Overridge.

Overbridge is a free of charge software suite offering powerful tools and deep control when connecting compatible Elektron instruments to computers.

Elektron

I’ve put some time in with it so in this event I will present an overview of the newly released Elektron Overbridge 2.0. I will also do a performance using Elektron machines.

In his presentation I’ll cover:

  • Using your Elektron machine as an audio interface
  • Using the visual editors
  • Machine organization (presets, kits…)
  • Audio recording from stand-alone app
  • Getting started with DAW intergration including multi-channel audio streaming, using the hardware as an effect for Live devices, and automation
  • And more…

Note that Overbridge Stand Alone is super handy even if you don’t want to more advanced DAW integrations.

Also, Even if you don’t own an Elektron machine I hope you’ll join in to see how Elektron’s approach offer deep integration to your computer. Four years in the making – it’s quite a feat.

Event #85 – The Appropriate Premaster with Steve Turnidge – Online April 22nd, 7PM MDT

Steve Turnidge (author or Desktop Mastering, and Beyond Mastering) will beam in from Seattle to lead us through some of the fundamentals of sound and perception and clarify what we are really seeing and hearing in audio waveforms. Then, we’ll visit dynamic range and how that relates to digital audio bit depth. This leads to a brief history of music recording technology, and how the rules that used to be appropriate for the tools of the day are now different…
