Emulator ELITE is the culmination of six years and over $1M in research and development.  We have spent the past nine months in the lab perfecting the hardware and software to give performers a new tool that will set them apart from all others.” Commented CEO Alan Smithson.  

“The ELITE builds on the foundation of our Emulator Dual View System (DVS) with some amazing new features”

Emulator ELITE is not only futuristic in looks, it is the first time DJs, Composers, MCs, and Musicians have a customizable interface from which to show the audience more of their performances. Any image can be incorporated into these templates, including animations to give the interface an even further creative touch.  

Artists now have freedom to create an interface that is both functional as a midi controller and embodies their style in one complete performance system that the crowd can see.”, said newly appointed COO, A. Traviss Corry. “Never before has an artist had the ability to show the world exactly what they are doing on their equipment live on stage.  The engagement of fans on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube has been overwhelming.
