SUPERBOOTH19! Yes, we will be demonstrating the potential and flexibility of the ELK MusicOS by showcasing a number of hardware product prototypes based on existing VST (Virtual Instrument Technology) and RE (Rack Extension) releases from world-class developers at SUPERBOOTH19, Europe’s first and largest trade fair for electronic musical instruments.

In Steinberg’s stand in Yamaha’s booth (H310) we continue our partnership in making VST a standard for hardware by showcasing the co-developed Powered by ELK’ Retrologue 2, a proof-of-concept prototype desktop synth running Retrologue 2, Steinberg’s VST Virtual Analog Synthesizer — successfully emulating the warmth and fatness of classic analog synthesizers — on hardware.

However, ELK MusicOS is not only VST compatible but also runs RE plug-ins from fellow Swedish company Propellerhead. Supporting the Propellerhead partnership, we will be showcasing a Eurorack format synth module running the RE-compatible Polysix for Reason — utilising Korg’s proprietary CMT (Component Modeling Technology) to precisely model the circuitry of an analog polysynth classic from 1982.

“The different hardware prototypes we will show at Superbooth are all great examples of what the ELK MusicOS is capable of. Without losing any of the benefits and qualities of the desktop plugin, with ELK you add the feel of playing an actual physical instrument. I am very excited to show everyone at Superbooth what we have been working on.” Michele Benincaso CEO MIND Music Labs

But that’s not all… We will also showcase some great plugins from the likes of former DSP engineer at Arturia and plug-in developer Stefano D’Angelo ; Italian music and audio software company Audio Modeling creators of the SWAM engine and a leader in multi-vector expressive digital acoustic instruments; HISE, an open source framework for sample-based instruments; and lastly but not least, Igor Nembrini of Nembrini Audio, creator some of the most revered guitar amp plugins under the Brainworx brand for Universal Audio’s UAD platform.

See you there!  Berlin, Germany May 9-11. Booth O504
