ELK is a Music Operating System (MOS).

It allows musicians to:

  • UPGRADE their instruments adding new sounds and features
  • CONNECT musical instruments to external hardware and to the broader Internet
  • SHARE instantly their performances online

ELK also allows hardware companies to move away from dedicated chips and use standard CPUs with no compromise in terms of low-latency, performance and scalability.

ELK makes it incredibly easy for software developers to port existing software for use in embedded environments, essentially allowing them to run the same code on desktop, mobile and embedded systems.

Camelot Software- Booth 10502- In our quick poll, Camelot Pro won Best of Show!

 The website doesn’t provide a lot of information yet, but we got a sneak preview and Camelot is pretty awesome.  It integrates hardware synths, softsynths plugins and allows you to integrate everything you need for live performance in one piece of software including lyrics, Chords and Music.

Our favorite feature? Take any multi-timbral 16 channel tone generator( like a Yamaha Montage), press one button and you can play the Montage as a fully functional MPE tone generator! Camelot is developed by Fatar and Audio Modeling.
