Thanks to the M-Series (iKEY-Audio’s premier line of Active Studio Monitors www.ikey-audio.com) providing the sound, the whole booth roared with the performances of Gemini’s own DJ Journey and DJ Jacquie Jack, who showcased their undeniable ability to blend diverse beats and mix musical genres from across the board on their Gemini CDT-05 turntables.
If that wasn’t enough, visitors were also entertained by a surprise jam session by Rock Musicians/Producers Alestar Digby and Tobi Hero Wilson, who jammed out, all the while being recorded with accuracy on the iKEY Plus Professional USB Portable Recording Device, the most convenient real-time recording tool on the market.
“The show was amazing,” raved Alan Cabasso, President of GCI Technologies. “We had tons of booth traffic and a lot of meetings with our dealers, which is always great. “The vibe this year was some of the most optimistic that I’ve ever seen.”
