It raised over $1 million on Kickstarter, and now the amazing Artiphon Multi-Instrument Music Maker is available to buy. With this innovative musical instrument, you can fit the whole band in your backpack and strum, tap, slide, and drum your way through an endless array of sounds. With built-in speakers and a headphone jack, while weighing in at just 1.6 pounds with a 6 hour battery life, it truly is portable.
With the Artiphon, you can play any instrument, style, and sound thanks to its patented multi-instrument technology. It can plug right into your computer, smartphone, or tablet to work with apps like Garageband. It is also full MIDI-compatible, which means it works with hundreds of MIDI programs and apps.
If you’ve ever dreamed of a professional studio full of instruments but found that goal as unattainable as your own laser light show, try the Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1 instead. A Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI), it’s a gadget that connects a musician’s playing to the creative possibilities of digital sound.
Strum, tap, slide, and drum your way through an endless array of sounds. The clever but uncluttered design draws on existing instruments and familiar methods of making sound, so you can play it like a guitar, a lap steel, a keyboard, a violin, or something in between that we don’t even have a name for.
Artiphon’s digital strings let you tune to any key instantly, play with frets (like a guitar) or without (like an upright bass), and even add expression by “bending” notes (think Hendrix-like moves). All this sounds like a lot of fun, but how do you capture it? Simple: Connect it to the companion iOS app or hundreds of other programs like GarageBand and Animoog to record, edit, and share your work with the world. Monitor your compositions through the built-in stereo speakers, or keep all that creativity to yourself with the headphone jack. The long-lasting battery means the music won’t stop halfway through the day.
Whether you’re dabbling in a dorm room or playing on stage or in the studio, this powerful performer will expand the way you make music.
