About CTAG

CTAG was developed through a collaboration between Bela and Robert Manzke and Henrik Langer of CTAG Audio. It is sold and distributed by Bela and is an official Bela licensed product.

CTAG's full Bela compatibility means that you can take advantage of Bela's ultra-low latency processing (as low as 1ms round trip). Additionally, CTAG is fully compatible with Bela's browser-based development environment, where you can customise your audio processing using any Bela-supported language usch as C++, Pure Data, Supercollider, Csound and more. Add a Bela cape to hook up sensors and devices, and add interactivity to projects like multi-channel instruments and sound installations.
