DSD DAW From Korg - Dazzling Demo
November 6, 2010
Just saw an amazing demo in a hotel suite near the AES convention: A laptop (PC) running a DSD DAW natively, via a USB 2.0 interface, playing back through a 5.1 surround setup.
As you'll read in the official press release I'm reprinting in the NEWS section of our website, this is not a final version by any means, nor is the (currently) 8-channel interface necessarily going to be looking like it does in my photo
but the GUI is very elegant and functional and looks ready for prime time:
We saw and heard seamlessly integrated eq and effects pop-ups working perfectly (like the grand piano spinning around the 5.1 speaker array - very funny just after breakfast...), while listening to stunningly realistic jazz tracks recorded in Japan just a few days ago.
The above are just quickie pix I took in the hotel suite - look for more details and pictures from Korg in the future and jump to our NEWS section for the official press release.
