About the company
MIND’s mission is to improve the way musicians and their audience interact through music. Our products are SENSUS, the world's first real Smart Guitar, and ELK, a game-changing operating system for hardware musical instruments.
We have been awarded several titles (Best Music Startup at MIDEM 2016 among the others) and we are currently in discussions with many top musical instruments companies for licensing ELK to their products. The first device powered by ELK has been announced at NAMM 2018 by our partners, leaders in Bass & Guitar amplifier solutions.
