Exploring Presets on the INSTRUMENT 1

Traditional musical instruments are generally meant to be played in one way. We could think of them as singular. Artiphon’s vision is to take this experience from singular to plural. The INSTRUMENT 1 invites you to combine techniques, tunings, sounds, and positions, letting you design your own ways of exploring, playing, and creating.


The INSTRUMENT 1 has four main playing presets that determine how the instrument responds to your touch. In the video above, Artiphon founder and CEO Mike Butera demonstrates the four: guitar, violin, piano, and drum. Each is indicated by an icon and a white LED light on the face of the INSTRUMENT 1, and you can cycle through them by pressing the volume knob.
