Touch 2 is an instrument designed for tactile interaction and hands-on control. It can be a thick bass, distorting string, delay, reverb, distortion and pretty much anything in between. Upload different instruments through USB and play! Swappable faceplates (four included) and 12 touch pads make it a tactile performance instrument.

Running the Daisy Seed microcontroller, Touch 2 sounds AMAZING no matter what instrument you flash on it. And, it’s programmable, so you can design your own instrument using C++, Arduino, Max or Puredata.

The Synthux community is constantly releasing new Touch instruments. Simply upload the firmware through USB and you have a completely new instrument in your hand! Using the Swappable faceplates you can distinguish between the instruments, and even design your own faceplate.

Currently available open source instruments are:

    Plunk and bang on metal, plastic and wood. Add distortion and modulation
    Sample, loop, mix, stretch and manipulate recordings in real time
    Process your guitar, voice or synth with wobbly delay, chorus, reverb and various distortions
    Play thick basses, leads and pads, mess around with AM and a generative melody maker
