This is quite an interesting device (providing you are seriously into arpeggiators):

As usual the video brings up as many questions as it answers:

  1. Can you save patches?
  2. Can you sequence patches?
  3. Is it portable/reliable?

I think without 1 & 2 the device would be very limiting if used on a regular basis. Whatever, it’s mostly interesting because of the way it asks the user to rethink the way they visualize and spatialize music: it’s a new notational form as much as anything else. See also Reactable.

[Thanks to John Hill for this one.]

A great little video created by Stefano Ottaviano with music by Ben Williams:

Stefano and Ben have both just graduated from Swansea Metropolitan University (Animation and Music Technology respectively).

Good stuff.
