New Toy – New Instrument for Musical Expression

New Toy is a MIDI instrument featuring its unique style and lighting expression.

It has a fingerboard with three virtual strings triggered by three push buttons, a 16-key keypad to send MIDI control signals, and a bunch of other sensors enabling it to do other cool things.

Synthesizers are taking dominance away from guitars, but the guitar is still the most expressive instrument in the world. Therefore I created this cooler-looking instrument that the playing style is like a guitar while having more potential to develop different new soundings. Plus a built-in lighting system to enhance the expressiveness, which is my favorite part.
