Gemini_1 is a 12' full range digital amplified speaker cabinet with integrated studio quality USB audio interface for use with modelers and software based guitar systems.
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. Gemini 1 features a 110W internal amplifier, 12' low frequency driver, and 1' coaxial high frequency driver providing a frequency range from 57Hz 'å± 20KHz. Pro-audio "' jack and XLR connectors, USB, and optional stereo Bluetooth wireless interfaces connect Gemini amps directly with software based guitar systems on computers, tablets and smartphones, as well as dedicated guitar processors.
The_studio quality onboard_digital audio interface features bit perfect class 2 stereo audio with, selectable sampling rates up to 192KHz and 24bit. This allows you to play and record directly into your PC or Mac without any additional hardware. The EmPower EQ control allows blending between a flat or a more traditional guitar cab frequency response. Gemini can be used as a flat frequency response power amp and speaker, or as an onstage monitor with a more traditional guitar cab frequency response. Full range flat response (FRFR) systems can often sound harsh and brittle when used as a monitor compared to a traditional tube amp. Empower allows you to dial in just the right blend depending on your application. Gemini can also be miked up like a traditional speaker cab.
Sophisticated connectivity supports a multitude of different input and output options via Combo XLR-/1/4' jack, and USB inputs. With a single Gemini 1, stereo inputs are summed into a mono signal and output through the internal speaker drivers. Add a second Gemini 1, and_PresenceDetect automatically determines the master/slave configuration and routes the stereo signals to the appropriate left and right Gemini units. Multiple inputs are mixed so you can connect a guitar and a USB device simultaneously to play along with a recording.
Gemini's advanced power system provides a number of benefits not found in traditional_guitar amplifiers. 100 'å± 240 input voltage and 50/60 Hz compatibility means you can use Gemini almost anywhere in the world without requiring heavy and expensive transformers. Just connect directly to wall power wherever you are with a suitable cable. Power saving features such as a high efficiency power supply and deep sleep modes for internal components mean Mission Gemini's use a fraction of the power of a regular amp, costing less to run, and_wasting less energy. The included V-Lock power cable ensures the power is correctly connected, and protects against the cable being accidentally pulled out.
The Gemini 1 will grace any stage or studio. Each cabinet is hand made from 3/4' void free, baltic birch with a high quality black Tolex covering, black basket weave acoustic speaker covering, and chrome hardware. Guitarists using a rack mount guitar processors such as the Fractal Audio-Axe-FX, Avid Eleven Rack, or Pod HD PRO can use the Gemini H 19' rack head and build the perfect modeling half stack.
The Mission Gemini 1 is made in California, USA, and features a two year manufacturers warranty.
Gemini 1 is available now standalone or bundled with the Gemini-H rack head unit at a $50 saving.
