THE Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1
The Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1 is a new kind of digital instrument that adapts to the way you play.
With built-in speakers, all-day battery life, direct iOS connection, and MIDI MPE compatibility, the award-winning INSTRUMENT 1 has opened a new category of production, performance, and play.
Los Angeles-based guitarist and producer Annie Shred combines her love of metal with electronic music, creating a sound that's entirely her own.

“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."
This is not a guitar
But it is a way to take your knowledge of the fretboard into your digital productions. Know a little guitar or bass? You'll have no trouble finding your way around the world's only MIDI MPE string controller.
The 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.
MOVE BEYOND THE TOUCHSCREEN
You've already got the best sounds and synths around. More versatile than your keyboard controller, and far more performative than musical typing, the Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1 is here to help unlock your virtual instruments.
