As ever, January was all about NAMM 2010. As is always the case, there were plenty of exciting new products unveiled at this year’s NAMM show, but a few highlights in particular spring to mind.
TC-Electronic’s PolyTune achieved the unlikely task of getting us all excited about a guitar tuner, with its revolutionary ability to tune all of your guitar strings at once - a skill that later in the year was put into an excellent iOS app.
We also got a little (prematurely) worked up about Teenage Engineering’s mini-synth/controller the OP-1. Despite being one of the coolest things we saw at last year’s show, here we are a year later still waiting for this excellent little box of tricks to be released. We also got our first glimpse of Ableton/Serato link up The Bridge and saw The Batmobile (above).
