This collaboration falls in line with the future direction of Novation, in creating a broader group of products for all musicians, including todayâ€™s guitarists. Nio 2 | 4 (pictured above) is the first example of this. A USB 1.1 Interface featuring Direct FX technology, nio 2 | 4 is set to ship with a host of Overloud amp simulations, including the most famous British and American amps, overdrive and distortion stompboxes, alongside a mass of classic Novation effects, many derived from the classic Supernova II.
Rob Jenkins, Focusite/Novationâ€™s director of Product strategy told us, â€œI look forward to a future developing products with Overloud, and as a guitarist myself, I especially look forward to working with Thomas. His expertise in guitar amp simulation technology is beyond compare. I also must admit, itâ€™s always nice to sip a glass of champagne, sharing it with our press chums, so early in the show.â€�
Thomas Serafini, VP R&D Manager of Overloud had this to say, â€œIâ€™m really excited about this partnership. It will be a pleasure to work with the Novation team to develop new great products for todayâ€™s guitarists. Novation are a reference on the market for their top-quality products, and we are proud to share our technology with them.â€�
