Stephan Schmitt & Nonlinear Labs: Emphase

01-21-2015 11:00 AM

Stephan Schmitt, the visionary behind Reaktor (known as Generator in the very early days) and then co-founder of Native Instruments, has quietly been setting out on new paths establishing a new company Nonlinear Labs in 2011. The company is based in Berlin and its focus is to develop specialised high-end instruments, effects, and controllers for live musicians rather than studio production gear.

It’s still early days and not many details about forthcoming instruments are publicly available at this point, but watch this video to enjoy a glimpse of some parts of the interface of Nonlinear Labs’ new instrument in development named “Emphase”, and get an impression of the current state of the project and their workspace.
