Synthesizers should be accessible for everyone and feel as exciting as acoustic instruments when you play them – which is why Kravox was created. The instrument is under constant development and currently consists of three wireless handheld devices and a base station that communicate with each other via radio. The controllers are touch-sensitive and turn the gestures of multiple users into music. Each one of them has it’s unique feeling when you move it through space and invites both trained and untrained musicians to explore it’s character. Kravox’s software is written with free software tools like Arduino and Pure Data plus the help of a worldwide online community. The complete code and instructions on how to build your own Kravox will be available to everyone online soon for free.

Kravox and it’s predecessors can be seen on Youtube:
