Massive Threat instrument released

Quirky's new Cable Cap helps users organize USB cables, while Native Instruments has announced the launch of a new Kore-powered instrument.


Quirky has released a new line of products for organizing and storing USB cables. Cable Caps are designed to protect the male end of a USB cable when it is not in use. The top of each Cable Cap features a unique character with a built-in slot to store the end of the USB cable, while the body section acts as a stretchable band that can be used to tie up the remaining cord. The product line includes six different characters including Printer Man, Phone Dude, Camera Gal, Eye Baller, Egg Man and 'Da Bulb. Cable Caps can be purchased online in sets of three for $8.

Native Instruments releases a new Kore-powered instrument

A new Kore-powered instrument has been released by Native Instruments. Massive Threat offers a variety of KoreSounds, each with eight morphable variations which can be used to produce 1,600 unique sounds. Parameter assignments allow for immediate sound tweaking within the accompanying software, while metadata for each preset allows Massive Threat to integrate with any of the Kore-powered instruments. In addition, the instrument can be used in conjunction with Kore 2 or the free Kore Player, as well as the original Massive synthesizer. Massive Threat is currently available in the Native Instruments online store for $59.

    "massive threat"

    That's a very smart move, calling a product "Massive Threat" in these very peaceful, terrorist-free times. Reminds me a bit of the band Massive Attack, whose name didn't go down too well with some over-sensitive people during the Gulf War.

    cable ends?

    Has anyone here actually had a time when they'd wished their USB cable end had been protected?
