Audio Cubes

Shape Sound, Create Music and Perform Live With A Single Touch

— May 6, 2009 — Tech
Every music producer should have a new set of AudioCubes, a fun method of creating new sounds. An alectronics company in Brussels, Percussa, created glowing blocks that hook up to a computer and let you shape sound with a simple tap. It’s a interactive, wireless, intelligent system that senses your position and a distance to other objects. Templates and sounds are included to get you started quickly.

Users can choose from up top 100 cubes, which are all networked. Each AudioCube consists of a small, powerful digital signal processing computer, custom built for the applications of AudioCubes.

‘Multiple users’ AudioCubes talk to each other wirelessly without complicated setup. High-speed, high-resolution, better-than-MIDI sensor technology make sure even the most subtle performance gestures are captured.

In my opinion, it’s a great idea for music lovers to make long hours in recording studio even more enjoyable.

3. Networked Music Production - The networking capabilities of AudioCubes enable multiple users to easily connect and communicate wirelessly, fostering collaborative music production experiences.
Industry Implications

2. Electronics Manufacturing - The development and production of AudioCubes presents disruptive innovation opportunities in the electronics manufacturing industry through the integration of wireless sensor technology and intelligent computing systems.
3. Software and Sound Design - The inclusion of preloaded templates and sounds in AudioCubes opens up disruptive innovation opportunities in the software and sound design industry by simplifying the process of creating new music and soundscapes.
