Touch Innovations has announced that it has brought back single-license purchase pricing for Emulator 2, its customisable multi-touch controller software for any MIDI application, having opted out of the unpopular subscription model by popular demand. Here's their press release with the details...
Not to be confused with E-mu Systems' second trailblazing Eighties-era hardware sampler, Touch Innovations' innovative Emulator 2 really represents a license to dream -- albeit now no longer holding its users to the unpopular subscription pricing model, making it perfectly possible for them to create their dream controller for any MIDI application by bringing about a multi-touch experience with everything and anything available at their fingertips. For Emulator 2 includes all standard objects like sliders, knobs, modulation pads, encoders, buttons, and much more besides. But best of all, as each and every component is fully customisable, creativity is effectively only limited by the user's imagination... and, of course, the software being controlled.
Fully redesigned and re-engineered for flexibility and ease, Emulator 2's new, improved and intuitive editor for Mac (OS X 10.11 Yosemite or higher) and Windows (8, 8.1, or 10) allows anyone to create custom interfaces in a matter of minutes. Make one from scratch or choose from Touch Innovations' inbuilt pre-made templates in the easy-to-use editor. Elsewhere, new capabilities abound, including full-colour palette; MIDI learn; OSC (Open Sound Control) -- a protocol for networking sound synthesizers, computers, and other multimedia devices for purposes such as musical performance or show control; and standard keyboard commands. Create template images and full-colour backgrounds with user-friendly navigation and more. Masterpiece creation is now easier than ever -- even adding logos, images, and animated GIFs (Graphics Interchange Format)!
Furthermore, Emulator 2 effectively places the software and any touch controller on the same interface using Touch Innovations' patented technology to enable and merge the native interface of any software with the touch controller. Cleverly, by creating 'holes', it allows users to port and stream certain elements of the underlying software that they can then resize and move. That way, users can customise their touch template without affecting the performance of those elements, enabling them to access all the power of their performance tool at a glance in their own way.
Whatever way anyone chooses to work with Emulator 2, their dream interface awaits... as a single-license purchase for only $59.00 USD. Users who create their own touch template using Emulator 2 can even sell their creative works online via Touch Innovations' Template Library!
