The original Atriphon Instrument 1 first hit the market in 2014, and while it was impressive at the time, the recent revamp shows just how incredible this musical gadget can be. Designed to be an instrument for "everyone," the Instrument 1 offers up the ability to replicate multiple sounds, all through a MIDI system.
The update to the Atriphon Instrument 1 now gives the device a new feature known as Smart Strum. This feature does take some skill to use but allows novices to use the instrument in a similar way as a guitar. Frets are simply activated with a single finger and full chords can be played with a strum.
Another new feature added to the Atriphon Instrument 1 comes in its String Bend feature. This allows users to press pressure-sensitive springs to create pitch harmonics.
