MOD Devices Announces the MOD Dwarf Effects Processor
MOD Devices has unveiled its latest creation, called the MOD Dwarf. The unit is a powerful and compact effect processor with an open platform for “platform for effects, amp simulations, cabinets, virtual instruments, synthesizers, and MIDI utilities.”
“There are thousands of developers around the world working on great-sounding open-source plugins. It turns out that most musicians never get to know about it,” the company writes. “MOD has established a bridge by curating these digital creations and making them available for everyone. This is the first time musicians and developers have a rock-solid dedicated platform to connect them.”
The MOD plugin shop has 300 plugins ready to download with new plugins being constantly added. MOD says you can run several plugins simultaneously, as the Dwarf has a Quad-core 64 bit ARM CPU running at 1.3GHz, with 8 GB storage, and 1 GB RAM. You can also use the controls to assemble patches on the fly.
