About this deal

It's possible to pitch bend along a string (a gesture referred to as vibrato), but the most extreme pitch bending (which is upwards only) comes from the 'bending' gesture, pushing strings upwards or downwards. For beginners, it’s fun and rewarding to play – the developers mention teaching music to kids as one application, and that’s certainly something it’s primed for.

Bring unique expressiveness to your music creation and access a new dimension of sound design with the compact and modular MPE MIDI controller. The Grand Clavier module comes with a free custom-made soundpack for the free UVI Workstation plug-in.Alternative strategy one is to detect colliding aftertouch data (this can be detected by a sudden drop in aftertouch output for a note, followed by another note on event) and use its output for all notes, until the collision stops. Curiously, any changes made in the editor have to be dropped on to this image to take effect — there's no incremental editing process. Available as direct download in the Joue Play App, Artist Packs invite you to explore the musical worlds of renowned artists with 8 new Signature instruments to add to your library to enrich your creations. I believe multi-touch screens have this issue but the firmware calculates the true values from interfering data streams. Joué have confirmed that this is a bug which will be addressed, so that channel aftertouch will be output smoothly regardless of the number of pads being pressed.

I have two versions, one which takes MPE mode data from Joue and keeps it as MPE, just converting CC74 into the appropriate midi channels channel aftertouch. You can use RFID to harvest a little bit of energy (up to 3V at 10mA ) to charge a capacitor to run LEDs. I’ve been working on the processing side of things, but it’s possible to cut out a usable projection surface, stick a NTAG213 RFID chip on the back, and copy the map data of one of the pads into it for an easy cludge. The Joue Play combines an expressive multi-instrument, an intuitive application and interactive content to practice. Yes, I checked and there are effectively 4 horizontal strips and 12+ vertical strips that record aftertouch, based on the dimensions of the matrix pad.The Pro option turns the Joué Play into an expressive and modular MPE MIDI controller that reacts like a real instrument. It also happens with the xilophone, when i keep a note pressed, It makes contact several times in a second. With the original Joue Im not sure if they ever released even a single firmware update for it during its lifetime, I know the software editor got updated sometimes but not sure the firmware ever did. Up to eight tracks can be used per project, and users can set tempo, loop length, and instrument tuning (the guitar pad offers alternative tunings like drop C).

The silicone modules afford some 'give' when pressed, making the surface a bit more haptic than the Sensel Morph, but with a lot less movement than a ROLI Seaboard. So I decided to accept that its useless for pressure, and to just use it in situations where I want to focus on pitch and Y gestures. On that front, I tried finding a whitepaper on the multiplexer chip that takes the board input, to maybe see if that was the source of the problem, but I came up with nada.Vibrato response seemed a little temperamental, needing a bit of left-right movement before kicking in, but glissando and glide worked well enough when configured properly. I have a Play and I’ve enjoyed it quite a bit; so much so that I made a helpful MPE template for FL Studio. I think my first target is my idea for the “best” strategy, and apply some inertia function to help make up for the lost dynamic range. There's no obvious physical orientation to the pad, but it can be placed any way round on the Joué and still work. Joué’s new Play controller, several years in development, falls into the latter camp and is unique in how it combines physical and virtual components.
