The Pulse Controller is a hardware / software solution that liberates computer-based musicians and performers from conventional input devices by allowing surfaces - desks, laptops, objects and more - to become playable MIDI controllers. An included piezo sensor coupled with a powerful software mapping interface converts acoustic impulses into MIDI Note messages for playing your software instruments in an intuitive, responsive and connected manner. With the Pulse Surface Controller System, controlling percussive instruments has a more visceral, immediate quality, and via a powerful MIDI generator that generates notes in predefined musical scales the user can easily extend into the melodic domain to tap into an inspiring world of happy accidents. Power to the fingers!
