Genki Instruments Intros Wave Wearable MIDI Controller

At the 2018 NAMM Show, Genki Instruments introduced the Wave, a wireless wearable MIDI controller.

We talked with Haraldur Hugosson, who gave us an overview of how the Wave works.

The Wave is a ring that lets you control sound, effects and send commands with hand gestures. It connects wirelessly over Bluetooth, so it should work with anything that supports MIDI over Bluetooth.

The company is also working on a Eurorack module that will let you generate CVs with gestures. Acording to Hugosson, the Euro version will also have very low latency, because it won’t have the overhead of a computer operating system.

More information is available via the company’s site.
