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.
BAND IN YOUR BACKPACK
At just 1.6 lbs, the INSTRUMENT 1 is the songwriting tool that goes with you anywhere and plays like anything.
And the rechargeable battery lasts all day–even when playing at 11.
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.
“Music and technology coming together to make something so accessible, so fun. This is what the future looks like now. Get used to it.”
"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."
