The Tenori-On hype continues.
Gizmodo took a look at it and loves it:
Tenori-On, the crazy light-up handheld synthesizer from Yamaha we’ve been geeked about for months, officially launched in the US tonight. We got our hands on one and simply put, we were amazed.
Artists at the event told us that the visual aspects of the device are just important as the musical aspects. Some said they attempt to make songs in a traditional sense, but others were more content to base their sounds on designs and shapes. The Tenori-On can work as a completely visual instrument.
The Tenori-On will retail for $1200 when it goes on sale May 1.
