Meet the Multi-instrument
With built-in speakers, all-day battery life, full MIDI compatibility and iOS connectivity, the award-winning INSTRUMENT 1 has opened a new category of production, performance, and play.
Know your way around a guitar or bass? Take your knowledge of the fretboard into the digital realm.
You’ll be able to tune each string individually, and play them independently with MPE: the new MIDI standard that allows for full expressiveness.
Modulate effects even after you've trigged your note with continuous aftertouch.
Pull-off and hammer-on as you would on a traditional guitar. Now do it with a piano sound.
Control filters and envelopes using natural gestures with Tilt: the INSTRUMENT 1's answer to mod wheel.
Inward pressure allows you to bend the pitch of a note, unlocking a new way to utilize your synth sounds.
Create new patterns and get fresh ideas with the hardware arpeggiator. Tempo and sub-divisions are easy to customize.
I1 will flip automatically depending on the way it's held. Lock it in if you play Albert King-style.
"The point isn’t to substitute a real guitar. It’s to give producers access to another tool: just like the MPC wasn’t meant to replace a drummer or the MIDI controller wasn’t meant to replace the synth."
"Although I can play several instruments, having a controller laid out as a guitar has allowed me to focus on being creative. I am so happy to add this controller to my workstation"
"My favorite preset is Smart Strum because of its versatility and how it lends to performing live."
