'The Music Room' proposes an innovative way to make music that's instant, intuitive and highly immersive. The Music Room from Chroma Coda exists within virtual reality for the HTC Vive, allowing musicians to use controllers to play everything from a virtual set of drums to laser harps.

Rather than being geared towards the average consumer, this technology targets aspiring and professional musicians as a next-generation music-creation system that doesn't take up as much space as a studio full of real instruments. Plus, it brings a tangible feel to composing with electronic instruments. The Music Room is a system that's paired with 'Bitwig,' which is a digital audio workstation that can be used to sequence tracks that are created with this technology.

This system has the potential to change the not only the way music is recorded, but the way it is performed as well.
