Skwitch allows you to make music by pressing one button!

Designed to clip onto your iPhone, you simply have to push the Skwitch’s soft, squidgy surface to play notes. You can create your own riffs and grooves using the companion app’s note editor… It may sound like something from Harry Potter but we love it hear at Decoded Mag, and it something you can certainly have some fun with!

Skwitch utilises the sensors within your iPhone, so it is completely ‘passive’ – there are no electronics and no batteries required. However, it can also work as a Bluetooth MIDI controller (via the iPhone) with MPE, modulation and FX control modes.

Potential applications for DAW users are as an additional controller to sit alongside your MIDI keyboard to control modulation, pitchbend and channel pressure, or as a standalone MPE controller for controlling attack, channel pressure, timbre and release.

Despite the fact that it was initially launched more than a year ago, the Skwitch is currently being pitched on Indiegogo, with a pledge of £22 potentially getting you a super early bird price on one.
