AUSTIN, Texas,November 7, 2014– Let’s face facts, no company will ever admit it cannot single-handedly produce the perfect instrument for music production and performance. Often times one company will be the best at one aspect of the process but another will supersede the first in another area. Battle lines often prevent companies from working together to collaborate in producing a product that is a greater sum than the individual parts. Because of this, you have been denied the instrument that you really need.
If you have been producing or performing music at all, you have already realized this and your studio and live rig consists of various components from a variety of different companies. However, you may still be looking for a more professional and seamless solution that doesn’t look like a pile of electronics and cables…strewn about your work area.
NARU was designed using over 15 years of experience in the highest levels of music production and performance to cross over barriers and be the instrument that was never meant to exist.
Music Computing is a leader in computer-based music production and its core value is the creation of a platform for this new breed of instrument. By integrating industry proven components from other companies, Music Computing is able to create an instrument like NARU, which encapsulates what people are using today in a meticulously designed and coherent instrument that supersedes the individual parts.
“When I first started to design musical instruments 15 years ago, I based my designs on the principle of an open platform…that is whatever is best for the user comes first.” Said Victor Wong, CEO, Music Computing. “That ideal holds true more than ever today.”
NARU is available in two different platforms. NARU PC includes a powerful Windows-based computer core while NARU Laptop allows you to dock your laptop, turning it instantly into an all-in-one music production station.
