In an industry-moving-and-shaking seismic shift, MIND Music Lab’s ELK MusicOS, the world’s first MOS (Music Operating System) for use in embedded environments, provides unmatched ultra low-latency performance using Intel X86 or ARM processors, which, when combined with ELK’s SDK (Software Development Kit), makes it easy for developers of VST (Virtual Studio Technology) and RE (Rack Extension) plug-ins to support ELK, ultimately ushering in a new era where the power, flexibility, and selection of audio and music software can be run in real time on embedded hardware.
Helping it stand out from the crowd, Italian innovator DV Mark’s Smart Multiamp (http://www.dvmark.it/media/upload_area/2019/01/11/dv-smart-multiamp.jpg) — one of the most powerful all-in-one preamp/effects processor/power amps ever produced — is all set to be released at The 2019 NAMM Show as the first Powered by ELK MusicOS product to hit the market! Marco De Virgilis, President at DV Mark and Mark Bass Original, obligingly pays tribute to the trailblazing technology that made it possible: “Thanks to ELK MusicOS, we have been able to release the most advanced all-in-one digital guitar device on the market, and the first amp to run VST plug- ins with the lowest latency you can imagine.”
Indeed, Smart Multiamp will be making its musical mark at The 2019 NAMM Show, showcased by DV Mark on Booth 5044 during each day of the show at 10:30 with a featured artist demonstration, and also being shown by MIND Music Labs itself there on Booth 16321.
