It provides a medium through which even individuals who have profound physical or learning impairments can become expressive and communicative using music and sound.

- 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.
