MIND Music Labs announced the continuation of the official partnership with music and media production products provider Steinberg — by bringing a brand-new, co-developed desktop synth prototype with full MIDI support to SUPERBOOTH19 in Berlin, May 9-11.

"We immediately saw the potential of ELK MusicOS, and that's why we added it to the official VST SDK [Software Development Kit]. The development of the 'Powered by ELK' Retrologue 2 hardware prototype has further strengthened our belief that, with the help of ELK MusicOS, VST can become a standard for not only software, as it is today, but also for hardware." – Florian Haack, Senior Marketing Manager at Steinberg

The proof-of-concept Powered by ELK Retrologue 2 desktop synth prototype — running the full Retrologue 2 VST desktop version, successfully emulating the warmth and fatness of classic analog synthesizers — was showcased for all to see and hear on Steinberg-owner Yamaha's booth at SUPERBOOTH19.
