The Chromawheel is a unique instrument & MIDI controller that helps you understand and visualize music theory in a tactile way.
Created by Soapbox Music co-founders Farsheed Hamidi-Toosi and Brendan Finucane, the Chromawheel lets you build and play scales or chord patterns using ‘puzzle pieces’. You can rotate patterns, transposing them to new keys. And with the chord buttons, you can play complex chords by holding chord buttons and then playing the root note.
“Our goal is to design & manufacture an instrument that simplifies musical concepts, thus lowering the barrier of entry to learning and creating music for everyone,” the developers note. “We are still in the prototype stage but are planning to do a first production run soon.”
