Mission Engineering Inc, manufacturer of innovative electronic products for musicians, today announced the availability of the first in a 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 modeling processors and software based guitar systems. Gemini combines state of the art digital amplification and interfaces that connect to almost any device, 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 modeling systems. Traditional pro-audio connectors such as ¼” jack and XLR are joined by 24bit, 192KHz High Speed USB Audio Class 2 stereo to connect Gemini amps directly with software based guitar systems on computers, tablets and smartphones.

“You can connect Gemini directly to your computer via USB and it shows up as an audio device. This makes it really useful for recording as well as practice and performance,” said Mission CEO, James Lebihan. “Since Gemini will be used in recording studios where high end audio interfaces are expected, we opted to use the XMOS xCORE-USB solution to enable its high-quality digital audio capabilities. xCORE delivers bit-perfect Class 2 audio which was essential for our product. The wide choice of xCORE devices with different processing capabilities was also a big plus. We plan on several different product variants and xCORE makes it easy to find the right part.”

XMOS CEO Nigel Toon commented: “We’re delighted to have been chosen by Mission, with its reputation for combining innovation with the quality required by the demanding professional audio market. Gemini is a great example of that approach, blending the best in traditional audio design with high fidelity digital technology. Musicians and recording studios around the world rely on Mission day-in, day-out: XMOS is proud to be able to play a part in that.”

Mission Amplifiers and cabinets are 100% designed and manufactured in the USA.
