IK Multimedia have teased a new hardware unit that claims to be an 'all-in-one' music production solution. The company have a long history creating both affordable and pro-level production equipment and software and it's unclear where this new product will fall.
The video teaser shows multiple touch faders as well as sixteen pads and a built in audio interface, hinting that the unit will work without a computer or DAW to run it.
With Akai's recent MPC line moving away from the laptop and running completely in standalone as well as the continued rise in studio hardware will we see more companies ditch the computer completely? IK claim the announcement will be made on 24th August - we'll bring you the full spec once it's released.
