Today, the Anaheim convention centre opens its doors for the 112th (no, that’s not a typo!) annual Winter NAMM show and we wait with much excitement to hear what the world’s music software brands have got up their sleeves for the year ahead.
We’ve had the heads up on some of the products to be unveiled and you can read all about them on the Time+Space NAMM news page now. If you’re lucky enough to be at the show, here’s the Time+Space brands who are exhibiting – pop by their booth and say hi!
Vir2 have announced Acou6tics – the acoustic guitar follow-up to the incredibly successful Electri6ity and their sister company, Big Fish Audio, will be showing off a new urban synth virtual instrument – Swagg. Find them in Hall A, booth 6514.
Make Music has unveiled Garritan Harps – which features five pristine-sounding instruments wrapped up in the company’s acclaimed ARIA player. Check it out on the Make Music stand in Hall A, Booth 6210.
Rob Papen can be seen in Hall A, booth 6825 demonstrating Dock – an innovative new solution which enables Rob Papen synths and effects to be used standalone without a host application or DAW. Rob will also be showing off the latest Punch update which will be available mid-February.
iZotope‘s Ozone 5 mastering suite has just been announced as Sound on Sound’s plugin processor of the year – why not go and give it a test run on the iZotope booth (Hall A, 6920) and while you’re there check out one of their scheduled tips and tricks presentations.
Stop by the Ilio booth (6724) in Hall A and catch up with the guys at Synthogy who’ll have demonstrations of their Ivory virtual pianos by some great keyboardists including Jordan Rudess and Mike Garson. You’ll also be able to try Spectrasonics instruments on the Ilio booth and perhaps you’ll bump into the great Eric Persing while you’re there!
See the latest audio hardware from ESI at booth number 6832 in Hall A, and if you get a chance take a trip downstairs to Hall E where you’ll find some innovative creations from some of the industry’s emerging developers.
Phew, might be wise to take a foot masseuse with you too!
