Emulator software uses our proprietary multi-touch & midi protocols to create a layer above the software to be controlled thus making it touch.
Emulator Dual View System (DVS) uses a state-of-the-art 46” Infrared Touch frame with 4ms response rate on a custom foldable stand that puts the control perfectly at your touch and visible to the audience using an ultra short throw retro projection system.
NOTE: Limitations of DVS are direct sunlight & confetti. It is recommended not to use Emulator outdoors during the day. This warning does not apply to The Monster or the Kontrol Surface 1974.
YES 100% Stable. We have tested this software in a variety of situations from 45 Degrees Celsius (113 F) to -10 Degrees Celsius (14 F) and it has NEVER failed during a performance. As long as you use a computer with the minimum requirements, you will be absolutely blown away by how stable Emulator is.
