You may well have heard of this campaign on Kickstarter already, especially if you read CDM or other blogs. It’s a truly innovative instrument and if that’s the kind of instrument you’re used to playing then it’s going to be well worth taking a look at as it’ll connect to your iPad too.
Here’s an overview:
“The OVAL is an electronic musical instrument that connects to an App for smartphone or tablet and it can also be used as a controller connected to a computer. Inspired by the HandPans family of acoustic instruments, the Oval provides total freedom to create sounds and it’s a tool geared towards music learning and performing. It allows you to both change and create sounds and it is also a tool for sharing your compositions with an on-line community of users.”
