Secret Base Design has introduced Voxkit – a MIDI drum controller that lets you trigger notes with sound.
Clap your hands, tap a pencil on a desk, or use your voice, and Voxkit will detect the tone of the sound and trigger a sample from the app or a MIDI note. By listening to external sounds, rather than just the touch on a screen, Voxkit can capture velocity and rhythm variations.
You can also customize the sounds that Voxkit makes – add WAV format samples through iTunes File Sharing.
Availability and pricing are to be announced.
