ARPIO — A New Musical Instrument for Android (video)

Video description:

ARPIO is a new musical instrument designed to play arpeggios*. Move up-and-down the matrix to set the pattern’s speed, or left-and-right to set its pitch. Tilt the device to control volume and pitchbend, or shake for vibrato.

A similar version of ARPIO is available on iOS devices, under the name Arpeggionome (

*An arpeggio is a musical technique where notes in a chord are played in sequence, rather than ringing out simultaneously.

Question for developers … Who is looking at IK’s iRing SDK?

After yesterday’s announcement from IK about their new iRing hardware I did notice in the press release that they have an SDK for developers to integrate iRing compatability into their apps.

Whilst I’ve only had a brief amount of time to play with this so far I can see that it could add some really interesting dimensions to a lot of apps. So my question is, are any developers looking to integrate this? I’d love to know.

Is it just me who can see the musical applications of this hardware?

I can see immense uses for this as an expressive musical interface that could work with loads of apps. Is it just me?
