• Announcing the Kasina mind media system!



    Our latest light and sound system has finally entered production! Nearly three years in the making, the Kasina features a built in MP3 player, color LCD display, rechargeable lithium battery, a micro SD card slot and an 8 GB memory card. The GanzFrames are a new design, featuring three blue, two green and one red LED per eye, for a richer, more intense visual experience.


    The audio files are encoded with a proprietary new technology called SpectraStrobe?, which enables independent left and right RGB control. Stylistically, the included 47 SpectraStrobe sessions range from the soothing sounds of nature to various forms of embedded modulations to evolving ambient electronic tapestries, and are grouped into similar categories of use as in the Proteus and Procyon, plus an expanded set of 'mind art' sessions crafted to take you on magical and sometimes mysterious journeys.

    Kasina also includes a best-in-class AudioStrobe decoder, with 16 different color mappings to RGB, including a variety of evolving color maps. Turn your legacy AudioStrobe tracks into a colorful new experience!

    You can transform any of your music with a beat into a colorful experience via the included Color Organ feature... and you have six different settings to choose from, matching the Color Organ?s response to the style of music you've selected.

    The Kasina can act as a USB audio device, so you can play any audio straight from your Mac or PC if you choose to. There is an external audio input, too?connect your favorite player, smart phone etc. using the included audio patch cable. The Settings menu allows you to adjust all aspects of your experience to suit your tastes, from the external/internal audio balance to the brightness of individual colors to how long it takes when not in use for the Kasina to shut down.

    Also included on the 8 GB memory card is the Kasina Bastmic Session Editor, for both Mac and Windows, which includes a wizard that allows you to quickly create a variety of sessions, and a bonus collection: all of the sessions found in our vintage Sirius light and sound system. Another bonus are the three SpectraStrobe creation plugins for the multitrack audio MuLab software. We've translated the QuickStart guide into 11 languages, and included them as well.

    The main tool for professional authoring is Mind Workstation, from Transparent Corporation, and the NP3 Ultimate software will also be supported at launch.

    The Kasina package includes the console, 8 GB micro SD card with content, 12-LED GanzFrames, comfortable ear phones, a USB charger and cable, audio patch cord, printed Quickstart guide, and soft carry case. It will retail for $349, and should be available by late November. Stay tuned for more information!

      Thanks, Derek! Our first shipment will start heading its way to us, starting about right now. We're doing a 'slow launch' on the Kasina, so expect to see a series of changes here, Facebook, etc. over time. We'll start uploading more resources to the Kasina section of this site this week.

      Thanks for playing!
