Hughes & Kettner Release GrandMeister 36 Remote Control App for Android

The free version will offers full remote control via a standard USB MIDI interface.

Nashville, TN (July 15, 2014) -- Hughes & Kettner are delighted to announce the release of an all-new GrandMeister 36 Remote Control App for Android.

The new app follows in the footsteps of the German amp manufacturer’s iPad version, which was released alongside the GrandMeister amp in 2013.

Rüdiger Forse, Hughes & Kettner’s Senior Product Manager, said: “Although the demand was growing, we hesitated to offer our GM36 app for Android devices, simply as we were unsure due to the vast amount of android tablets and different OS versions out there. But at Musikmesse 2014 Frankfurt, Csaba Réti, a passionate GrandMeister 36 user and app programmer, contacted us and asked for the permission to use the graphics of our GM36 app, to program a version for Android. What a great coincidence!”

Réti, who is CEO of Hungarian software company Barré Informatikai Kft., said: “Especially in Eastern Europe, Android tablets are very popular among musicians. For me as a GrandMeister 36 user and Android app programmer, it was a question of honor to enable guitar players to use the great features of the Hughes & Kettner GrandMeister 36 with Android devices too. Barré Informatikai Kft. is very experienced in supporting Android systems and offers a direct support email address for users worldwide.”

Barré will offer two versions of the GrandMeister 36 Remote Control app: a free version that offers full remote control via a standard USB MIDI interface, and an extended version that offers additional preset management and sharing features.

The free version is already available from the Google Play Store, and the extended version will be available at a reasonable price later in 2014.
