New TheoryBoard Is A MIDI Controller Based On Music Theory

Irijule has introduced a new MIDI controller, based on music theory, the TheoryBoard.

At first glance, the TheoryBoard looks similar to other types of MIDI controllers – with 93 velocity-sensitive pads, an illuminated LCD display, and DIN/USB/Bluetooth MIDI connectivity. 

What’s different about the TheoryBoard is its emphasis on music theory. The controller can be set to any of 860+ scales, and controller will automatically adapt to playing chords and melodies in that scale.

Pricing and Availability

The TheoryBoard is being produced via a Kickstarter project. It’s available to project backers for $350 (‘Earlybird’ price). Irijule is a startup, so review the Kickstarter project page for information about the company and the status of their design.
