Control Sound Via Movement
Become An Instrument
Make your movements audible and become music yourself with the SOMI-1 motion sensor wearables for sound control.
SOMI-1 can be used with any MIDI capable software or hardware, as well as with the SOMI-1 smartphone app for iOS and Android, which will be available soon.
The Music Wearables
SOMI-1 is a highly precise sensor technology that provides performers, musicians and creators the opportunity of making music via movements. It consists of Bluetooth® motion sensors, a receiver hub and a smartphone app (as possible sound source). The sensors can be worn as wearables on the wrists and ankles, turning the user into an instrument.
Motion Sensor MIDI Controller
The SOMI-1 motion sensors measure movements and accelerations in different directions and transform them into sound parameter in real-time.
The motion data of the SOMI-1 sensors is received wirelessly via Bluetooth® 5 by the SOMI-1 hub, that connects to your music software, hardware or smartphone app via USB or TRS-MIDI.
