Product Description

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.

From the Manufacturer


Meet the Multi-instrument

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.

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

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.

Multiple positions

Play every part of the song on an instrument that adapts to the way you play. Switch to the tabletop position for a more natural performance on drums or keys.

Fretted or fretless?

Choose a fretted mode and always be in tune, or slide continuously between notes for maximum expression.


Designed for musicians, by musicians

The INSTRUMENT 1 is the first fretted and fretless digital string instrument. When using it as a grid controller, the advanced pressure-sensitive interface and onboard accelerometer offer low-latency, multi-dimensional playing.


About the Startup

Describe your product in 3 words.

Everyday music making

How did you come up with the idea for this product?

Over five years ago, we started exploring a few questions: how can we create an instrument that adapts to the way people want to play? One that connects easily to apps, letting people create any sound they can imagine with any technique they like. The result is the INSTRUMENT 1: a flexible and fun multi-instrument that people all over the world are doing incredible things with.

What makes your product special?

The Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1 can become many different instruments at the touch of a button, and even lets you design your own unique combinations of techniques and sounds. This patented multi-instrument brings together an ergonomic form, custom interface technology, intuitive software, and direct connections to mobile devices and computers. We focused on streamlining the tech so you can start playing instantly.

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.
