Edison, NJ (June 5, 2006)–Gemini Sound Products is changing its company name to GCI Technologies, which will act as the corporate umbrella for the Gemini brand, iKEY Audio brand, and the newly-acquired Cortex digital music controller brand.
“We have the infrastructure in place to distribute additional technology based brands,” said CEO Artie Cabasso. “With this change, we are in a position to acquire other brands or technology that we would not be able to develop on our own.”
GCI Technologies has acquired the global rights to Cortex, which debuted at January’s NAMM show with its patent-pending, hard-drive based technology. The technology caught the eyes and ears of the Gemini team, prompting them to acquire the engineering company who developed it. The acquired engineering company will be responsible for the manufacturing of the Cortex products.
“With its revolutionary hard-drive based technology, Cortex allows the DJ to easily access, control, and manipulate their entire digital music collection from virtually any USB storage device, including an iPod,” said president Alan Cabasso. “Bringing the art of performance back into DJ’ing, Cortex is truly the future.”
