Anaheim, CA. — January 22nd, 2014 – Mission Engineering Inc. (www.missionengineering.com), manufacturer of innovative electronic products for musicians, today announced a new range of ground breaking amplified guitar cabinets designed for optimal performance with today’s digital modeling processors.
Gemini with Mission EmPower Technology is the missing link in the world of digital modelling processors and software based guitar systems. Gemini combines state of the art digital amplification and interfaces that connect to almost any device, wired or wireless, with beautiful handcrafted wood cabinets that provide the look and feel of boutique tube amps.
Mission EmPower Technology™ features multi-channel class D power amplifiers, active crossovers with variable EQ, and full range co-axial drivers, all designed from the ground up to work together as the perfect amplification solution for modelling systems. Traditional pro-audio connectors such as 1/4” jack and XLR are joined by 24bit, 192KHz high speed USB and Class 2 stereo Bluetooth wireless interfaces to connect Gemini amps directly with software based guitar systems on computers, tablets and smartphones as well as dedicated guitar processors.
EmPower EQ control allows blending between a flat and a more traditional guitar cab frequency response. “The big step was not just to create state of the art technology, but to integrate it into something beautiful and reliable that guitar players would feel at home with”, said Mission CEO, James Lebihan. “Mission partnered with master cabinet maker Anthony Bonadio of Stage Craft to design and hand craft these cabs and heads, so they look and feel for all the world like high end boutique tube amps, yet you can connect up your laptop to them, or stream to them wirelessly from across the stage with your Iphone. I think that’s pretty cool”
Mission Gemini amps will be available in 1×12” mono, 2×10” stereo and 19” rack mount versions. Compatible rack mount head units for processors such as Fractal Audio Axe-Fx™ and Avid® Eleven Rack will also be available. Shipping is expected to begin at the end of February 2014 from the Mission web store at www.missionengineering.com, and approved distributors. Pricing TBA. Mission Amplifiers and cabinets are 100% designed and manufactured in the USA.
