I’ve seen a lot of new music devices in the last couple years that use creative interfaces to make music. Korg’s touch pad was first, followed by Alesis’ Air FX. Audiopad is an experimental (the I’ve mentioned are fully developed and released) interface that I find especially innovative. It’s not that the means of control are especially amazing (moving objects on a flat surface), but I’m really impressed by the way it represents music visually and allows multidimensional control over various sonic elements. Innovative representation of concepts – this is what I was getting at the other day. The site picture doesn’t do it justice, you should check out the video. Very cool. (via mefi)
P.S. As long as I’m linking to various innovative music products, I shouldn’t neglect Final Scratch. Freeeshhh.
