Looking like the sonic love-child of a basketball and a drum machine, the AlphaSphere is a fully customisable, digital instrument, sequencer and controller. Its self-supporting spherical structure is formed of 48 pressure sensitive pads that can be manipulated to mix and mould your musical musings.
Easily sync up with analogue or digital workstations and map your samples however you like; forming scales, patterns and entire sonic languages. Play it as a traditional rhythmic instrument, or apply continuous pressure to sculpt notes and melodies. It’s totally tactile.
Using the AlphaLive software and internal MIDI and sequencing capabilities, you can quickly manipulate audio parameters such as pitch-bend, oscillation and a host of filters. Meanwhile, the multi-coloured LED lighting responds to your actions – changing colour and frequency – or you can even program your own functions for the ultimate lightshow.
