NAMM 2019Propellerhead partners with MIND Music Labs to provide a cost-effective and scalable path for Rack Extension hardware integration

Propellerhead Software has announced a partnership with MIND Music Labs, enabling manufacturers to run Rack Extension plugins on instruments and music hardware products with ultra-low latency. This provides hardware manufacturers with a scalable, powerful and cost-effective way to incorporate Propellerhead's Rack Extension platform into hardware synthesizers and effects using widely available ARM & X86 processors.

"Propellerhead is thrilled to partner with Mind Music Labs to help manufacturers build groundbreaking hardware products in the most cost-effective and scalable way, " said Ernst Nathorst-Böös, CEO, Propellerhead. "We believe that together, we can bridge the gap between music creation software and hardware, and help manufacturers bring the next generation of incredible synths and effects to market."

Over 180 developers and more than 530 instruments and effects are now available in the Rack Extension audio plug-in format. Rack Extensions integrate seamlessly into the Reason rack, combining sound, smooth workflow, and stability with intuitive routing, automation, editing capability, and flexibility.

The Rack Extension format also gives developers unique benefits over other plug-in formats, say Propellerhead. Rack Extensions are compatible with desktop, mobile, and web platforms, and developers can easily reach customers through the Propellerhead Shop, which provides a direct distribution path to Reason's large global network of users.

Mind's ELK is a Music Operating System, which delivers the ultra-low latency performance of dedicated DSP chips on more powerful and cost effective ARMs and X86 processors. Now, hardware manufacturers can develop new products by taking advantage of the huge library of Rack Extensions already available, ranging from synthesizers and sampled instruments to creative effects and boutique studio processors. ELK's flexibility also allows users to upgrade their instruments and audio processors with new plugins, connect their devices to external controllers and much more.

"While a key value proposition of the ELK OS is support for all popular plugin formats, we are particularly excited about our close partnership with Propellerhead, " said Michele Benincaso, Founder, MIND Music Labs. "The 'middleware' nature of their Rack Extension format means hundreds of titles from dozens of developers become instantly available to ELK customers."
