tangible visual sound manipulation tools

There are more and more inspiring new tools for music creation and sound manipulation being made and they are getting more affordable. Gone are the days of organs that take up whole rooms, and synths have come along way since 1876. Electronic music really took off in the ’80s as company like Yamaha made affordable compact gear, but that was still based on a keyboard.

Now we are entering the age when music can be created and tweeked live visually.  I was blown away years ago when I first saw the AudioPad  by James Pattern

Here is a video of another similar design called the Reactable.

Wavetables have come along since Wolfgang Palm.

Yamaha also has a fun new toy called the Tenori-On. Sort of a visual sequencer. Which sells for about $1000 USD. 

These won’t be showing up on craigslist anytime soon, so better start saving your empties.
