Soundbeam uses ultrasonic sensors to detect movement - big or small - and translates this into sounds. It comes with pre-loaded 'soundsets' that range from tracks which allow the exploration and performance of different genres - blues, classical, to more improvisational soundscapes and other musical ways of playing. It is completely programmable so that the user can make changes to personalise the soundsets and save them. Soundbeam 6 has a wealth of instruments, backing tracks and sound effects to choose from.
You can have up to 4 sensors attached, though the most popular choice to start with is two.
Soundbeam 6 features include:
Full touch screen intuitive touchscreen with 'playable' beams and switches on screen
Internal integrated sounds Access to potentially unlimited libraries of instruments, sound effects, rhythm loops. No need to wire up to external sound module or keyboard.
