We headed to NAMM 2017 to check out the best new audio gear. You can watch all our coverage in these 3 totally free courses!
We saw the iConnectAUDIO2+ audio and MIDI interface from iConnectivity at NAMM 2016. It's a 2-in, 6-out interface with Mac, PC and iOS compatibility and can connect to two devices simultaneously!
Caught up in a collage of cables? Weirded out when wielding too many wires? Then Yamaha’s MD-BT01 could be the way forward for connecting your MIDI device to your Mac or iOS device.
Lynda Arnold, author and musician, often takes the alternative (more interesting?) path... and NAMM 2016 was no exception. Here are 5 of her favorite new innovations straight from the show floor.
Jordan Rudess, aside from being an amazing musician, is all about forward-thinking technology. In this video you'll experience just how expressive the ROLI Seaboard RISE is as a keyboard instrument.
In no particular order, here are 10 of our favourite music technology announcements / releases / overviews from NAMM 2016. Thank you for watching!
Roland are well and truly in the eurorack camp with their System-500 series of 5 modules. They've also been working on the A-01 which fits into the Boutqiue's keyboard and does a whole lot of control.

If you're interested in the Yamaha Montage synthesizer you'll love this video demo from the Yamaha hall at NAMM 2016.
The eurorack section of NAMM 2016 was buzzing, quite literally! We spent a lot of time exploring the new modules from some of the bigger and smaller players in the auroral modular synth world.
If you want to play your synths (hardware or software) with more expression than a keyboard can provide, this video shows how the Touché controller works in the real world.
At NAMM 2016 one of the more surprising announcements was from Modal Electronics. The British synthesizer maker announced new eurorack synth modules. Watch the demo with Paul Maddox below.
At NAMM 2016 Elektron unveiled their latest update to Overbridge (1.10) and OS 1.22 for Analog Keys, Analog Four and Analog Rytm. Curious about the features?
