53 High-Tech Music Products

From 3D-Printed Historic Violins to Modular Mini Interfaces

— April 5, 2018 — Art & Design
The advancement in technology and its innovative nature bring about an exponential growth across industries, and what this means for the audiophile is a wide range of high-tech music gadgets. Of course, there is a wide array of speakers and headphones in a highly competitive market, but these 53 high-tech music products are meant to emphasize and bring about a development in sound and knowledge for musicians or those wanting to learn an instrument.

The developments in the high tech music industry are unlike what creators had to deal previously. While the MIDI ring by Enhancia connects notes with the delicacy and fluidity of hand gestures, Specdrums allows the consumer to create composition through a chromatic keyboard pad — something like reverse synesthesia.
