Artiphon Instrument 1 MIDI Controller

Want to try a completely different type of MIDI controller? Check out the Artiphon Instrument 1, the controller that you can strum, tap, slide, and drum on!

The Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1 is a new kind of digital instrument that adapts to the way you play. It's the first MIDI controller that lets you strum, slide, tap, and drum any sound on a single interface.

The INSTRUMENT 1 has been designed to be played in multiple positions. A guitarist might hold the instrument like a guitar, or use the available Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1 Strap, while a cellist might enjoy holding the ergonomic instrument body upright. Beatmakers and finger drummers will discover a familiar grid surface when the INSTRUMENT 1 is laid flat. The instrument can even be held like a violin, against the player's neck.

Want to play a technique you've already mastered? String players of all kinds will find a familiar interface when the INSTRUMENT 1 is tuned like a guitar, bass, cello, violin, banjo, or any other traditional instrument. The ability to tune each string individually is one of many customizations these performers can take advantage of.
