Overbridge 2 MIDI Madness - Link Elektron Hardware To Soft Synths In Your DAW

Join Dave Mech for a quick and concise hands-on demonstration of how to set up Elektron hardware to control and trigger soft synths in your DAW in this short video.  

Elektron's Overbridge 2.0 software opens up a whole new world of compatibility not only between your ELektron hardware units but also between them and your DAW and software instruments.
