If you’re into beatmaking and know what a midi controller is, check out the Joué – an expressive and modular MIDI controller that feels like a real instrument. The kicker? You don’t have to choose between keys or pads or fretboard – you can simply switch the magic modules out, even while performing.
It started out as a Kickstarter project, but is now available officially through their website www.play-joue.com. At 600$ it’s certainly not cheap, but compared the kickstarter version, you get a slick looking controller made out of wood and metal.
The Joué can connects with smartphones, tablets, or computers via USB cable. It’s compatible with profesisonal music production software like Ableton Live, Logic Pro, and Native Instruments and of course it works with popular iOS audio apps like GarageBand etc.
