Product Description: 

Soundbeam is a touch-free music system designed to allow people with physical or developmental disabilities to create music by using sensor technology to translate body movement into sounds. It provides a medium through which even individuals who have profound physical or learning impairments can become expressive and communicative using music and sound.

Main Features: 

  • It uses ultrasonic sensors to detect any movement and translates this into sounds.
  • It comes with pre-loaded 'sound sets' that range from tracks that allow the exploration and performance of different genres - blues, classical, to more improvisational soundscapes and other musical ways of playing.
  • It is programmable so the user can make changes to personalize the sound sets and save them. It comes with a variety of instruments, backing tracks, and sound effects to choose from.
  • Touchscreen with 'playable' beams and switches on screen.
  • Access to potentially unlimited libraries of instruments, sound effects, rhythm loops. No need to wire up to external sound module or keyboard.
  • User can record and use their own sounds.
