The INSTRUMENT 1 is a multi-instrument that adapts to the way you want to play. It’s the first MIDI controller that lets you strum, slide, tap, and drum any sound on a single interface.
Switch to the tabletop position for a more natural performance on drums or keys. Tune your keyboard to play an easy major scale or use one-finger chords – perfect for adding organ or electric piano to your songs. Drums are also simple to play on the pressure and velocity sensitive pads, and even add unique fills to your drum tracks easily using the highly responsive bridge.
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.
Made for iOS so 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.

What has been the best part of your startup experience?
While developing the product, our goal was to design a creative toolkit for a wide variety of styles, techniques, and sounds. We didn’t want to build an instrument only for a specific genre, age group, or skill level; instead, we just wanted to see where people’s imaginations led them. Now that thousands of people around the world are playing it, it’s amazing to hear the music being made — and it’s only the beginning.
