Artiphon Instrument 1 Updated With New String Muting & MIDI Control Features

Artiphon has updated the firmware for its Instrument 1 MIDI controller, adding feature improvements for string muting and for using the knob as a MIDI controller.

String Muting:

Volume Knob Mapping:

Here’s what they have to say about the update:

The INSTRUMENT 1 just got a major playability update for muting strings. Now simply strum a chord, and when you lift off the fingerboard the strings will automatically mute.

Bonus: Strummed notes will ring out for as long as you can hold them with new infinite sustain.

The volume knob also learned a new trick – it now sends data to your DAW (via CC#9) so you can map your favorite effects, dynamics, and more when using an external sound card or line-out from your iPad.
