It’s been a long time coming, MIDI Thing is on the way

Some of you may remember that quite some time ago I was posting about a new device that I’ve been working on. A thing called simply “MIDI Thing”. You might remember these videos, the first of Jo (Mr Concretedog) playing with the MIDI thing live on the South Bank …

And then this video showing the MIDI Thing being used with a variety of iOS stuff:

Well after a long pause and some time to change the design and firmware we’re ready to get some people to test our little box and give us as much feedback as possible.

So what is MIDI Thing? Put simply MIDI Thing is a MIDI looper that lets you layer up MIDI tracks over multiple channels to create any kind of music you want. It’s portable and battery powered and has a unique control interface that we’ve tried to make as simple as possible (there are no buttons on the box at all)!

If you’re interested in being a part of the process to bring this product to market then we’d really like to hear from you and hopefully get a device into your hands to test and give us feedback.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Following on from my love of Blocs Wave, this video is a must see

If you haven’t tried out Ableton’s Link technology as yet, then watch this and see just what you can do with it. Here it’s being used in Blocs, a thing I think is amazing in itself, and having worked with Blocs last week I know just how amazing it is going to get.

Like Lego for a MIDI controller, this thing looks awesome

Discchord posted about this yesterday and it looks like a lot of fun to be honest with you. The concept seems sound too. I hope it’ll get off the ground.

It’s worth checking Discchord to see the translation from the Japanese site.
