Dark Matter Audio has unveiled details of their premier product, the DMA1. The DMA1 is an app-enabled smart device tailored for musicians, featuring a color touchscreen, internet capability and tons of connectivity. It’s capable of effects processing, multi-track recording, playing MP3 files and more.
Similar to a smartphone, users will be able to wirelessly download apps, including drum machines, loops, patch bays, tutorials and other content. DMA is also open to third party developers, so the list of apps should be ever-growing.
“With [the] DMA1 we’ve endeavored to create a paradigm shift in the world of audio production and performance,” says Dark Matter Audio CEO Jon Stuart. “DMA1 is the future of audio and music production precisely because it can be any future that a musician or producer could want.”
The Dark Matter Audio DMA1 is expected to ship this Fall. Until then, check out this demo video from Gear4Music.com featuring bassist/songwriter Seth Horan:
