I wrote about Joue back in January, right before the company participated in( and earned) our Ces pitch-off. The corporation was one of a handful of crowdfunded musical instrument startups at the show that were really worth getting provoked about.
This week, the French startup is opening the campaign for Play, a more user-friendly version of the company’s self-titled modular MIDI controller. As I noted in the earlier section, information systems controls similarly to Sensel’s Morph system, with silicone pads that slip on top of a touch interface to simulated a variety of different instruments, including a drum pad, piano, guitar and an electronic musical interface.
The brand-new explanation of the instrument aims to lower the bar with a connected portable app “whos working” as follows:
The instruments are assembled in a circle in the middle The timeline depicts succeeding musical events simply and clearly The mixer causes you adjust the magnitude of each instrument Recording is accessible immediately from the Pads, for maximum reactivity
In addition to the comrade iOS/ Mac/ Windows app, the Play is also more than $ 100 cheaper than its precede( at least it is currently on Joue’s Kickstarter page ). That toll includes the board and five different silicone pads.
It’s a cunning product and one designed for a broader gathering than the original — which went over fairly well in its own right. Sensel ultimately wasn’t able to ride the Morph beyond the initial motion of turmoil, but Joue’s focus on music and the elaboration of its hardware ogles to be taking the company further.
Unfortunately, the invention won’t be available while we’re all still cooped up inside. It’s currently projected to launch in October.
