As we decompress from the activities that make up the NAMM show 2014, there are many exciting products that fit market needs and wants. One of the brightest stars of the show was the Arturia Beat Step. It is certainly not the most expensive product at the show, but I dare say it is in the top 3 of coolest. Even big time DJ/electronic musician BT agrees with us as he took about half an hour to discuss the Beat Step with Sean of Arturia U.S.
Please check out this first look video shot from the show floor. ETA April 2014.
The other super nova of a star product is the Apollo Twin! We have been asking for this product for the last 2 years and UA listened! 2 super high end mic pres, ADAT optical in, and UAD-2 processing! The really amazing part is it is shipping! It was available for shipping on the first day of NAMM. You can actual run out and buy it now.
Another highlight from the show was the attention being paid to the education and production markets by many of the manufacturers we represent. Intellistage unveiled their new line of staging, Pro Flex Staging! This is a high end large scale staging solution. you have to see it to believe it. They are also now offering trussing, built in Poland, not China and offering many certifications needed to be used commercially. Last but not least they showed the staging 101 system in a completed package form. Multiple level risers for choirs, programs, house of worship ect. Again you must see it!
All in all it was a great show with much for us to share with you. We have demos ready to go and are eager to show off the coolest of the cool from NAMM 2014.
