Major Update Enhances Studiologic’s Numa Compact 2X

Victoria Wasylak • Supplier Scene • November 20, 2019

A major OS update recently unveiled for Studiologic‘s Numa Compact 2X hosts a “Manager App” and new Sound Library. These updates multiply the abilities and enhance the sound of this versatile keyboard and midi controller and are available to Numa Compact 2X owners at no charge from Studiologic’s website.

The Numa Compact 2X’s new sound library includes an original sampling of a Japanese concert grand piano. Digitally recorded with eight high quality microphones, this “Japan Grand” sound accurately captures all 88 notes with the natural release sound of each string. Several additional new sounds range from brass to woodwinds to strings, all recorded with equal care to maintain the full sound quality of the original instruments.
Available for Windows or Mac, the new Manager App manages the Numa Compact 2X’s presets list and loads sound samples from the keyboard’s new Sound Library into its full 1GB of memory. The updated OS Version 1.1 hosts the Manager App and adds new features. Setting Local OFF in OS 1.1 interrupts internal sound generation while maintaining all MIDI out capabilities increasing the compatibility with some computer applications. OS 1.1 also offers a Multi/Single USB MIDI out channel mode.
Attendees of Winter NAMM 2020 can see and audition Studiologic’s Numa Compact 2X with its updated OS, new Sound Library and Manager App in booth # 11113, Main Hall A.
