Video number 4 gives us the clearest idea yet of what this thing is that they’ve taken 30 years to make. And is “WING” it or are there more letters to come?
So it’s not really looking like a synthesizer then. Does this mean I’m going to have to hand this curious coverage over to one of my pro-audio colleagues? Quite possibly, let’s check it out.
Lot’s of people guessed that it had something to do with a touch-screen. There are a lot of sound mixing and studio-style elements in play here. There are effect plug-ins, EQ but also in-built recording facilities. There seem to be complex routing opportunities like some kind of front-of-house console while also giving the impression of potential DAW capability.
But there was one glimpse in particular that grabbed my attention and that’s this frame here:
It appears to be a signal selection panel where you have USB Audio, Dante, AES50 but also the highlighted box says “WING LINE”. Is that just the input to the WING device or is it some kind of new audio protocol?
So it’s looking like some kind of touch-screen based mixing console like a new generation of mixer from their Midas team. Shame – I wanted another synth.
