The Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1 Black Adaptive Multi-Instrument MIDI Controller is a portable MIDI controller and multi-instrument designed to provide versatile playing and expression styles for producers, musicians, and beatmakers in writing sessions, on-the-go idea exploration, and studio and live stage productions. It features six digital strings and 12 frets on a velocity- and pressure-sensitive fingerboard, which can be configured in one of several stringed or pad-based modes. An integrated accelerometer offers mod wheel control via physical movement.
Play the guitar, violin, piano, or drum instrument presets, or trigger sounds in your favorite DAW. The INSTRUMENT 1 supports MIDI and audio via USB and is customizable via the Artiphon iOS app. Listen through the built-in stereo speakers or monitor through headphones plugged into the 3.5mm TRRS mini-jack, which also serves as a microphone input.
Power can be sourced from the included 12 VDC power supply or the internal 6-hour rechargeable battery. Weighing in at only 1.6 lb, it can easily be transported anywhere your creativity takes you.
Choose the way you want to play using a variety of traditional techniques. Strum any sound using the guitar preset or switch to tabletop position and tap for a more natural performance on drums or keys. You can even customize your own tunings for an instrument that is as unique as your music.
Strings that break the rules (and never break)
Use your guitar, bass, and other string skills to play any sound imaginable with synths or samples. The INSTRUMENT 1’s digital string interface can be fretted or fretless, and can be instantly re-tuned to any scale. It’s even velocity and pressure-sensitive, so you can map effects to your fingertips.
The band in your backpack
The INSTRUMENT 1 goes with you anywhere and sounds like anything. And since it’s Made for iOS, you can leave your computer at home when you’re traveling light. Connect to the Artiphon iOS app or hundreds of other apps including GarageBand, Animoog, and more. The INSTRUMENT 1’s built-in speakers put out all the sound you need for the writing session, while the onboard headphone jack allows for stealth mode on the subway.
