Prototype MIDI controller/instrument for iPad and DAW software
The Rainboard is a MIDI controller born out of the research of Brett Park, a PhD in isomorphic design. His idea with the Rainboard and the accompanying iPad app, Musix, is to make playing and discovering chords a more intuitive process.
The design revolves around a hexagon of 61 tri-colour backlit arcade buttons, each with a MIDI value mapped to it, set into a transparent plastic enclosure. Colours and MIDI values are set from an external source, such as the Musix iPad app, using SysEx messages. This allows the layout to be changed quickly, by switching between presets.
