With an iconic (and slightly weird!) design, the Expressiv MIDI guitar joins a long list of controllers that promise to revolutionize the way musicians use synths. We’re not sure what’s going on at 1.22, however this is an impressive piece of technology that will win over progressive guitarists.

Attention drummers! Ever wished you had more than two hands to play with? Meet PERC: a MIDI triggered physical drum machine. Velocity sensitive and tempo controlled up to an insane 1200bpm, this could be a very creative addition to any drummers arsenal.

At CSGSMusicTech we’re always looking to add new ways of recording to our midi setup. The Seaboard RISE is one of a new crop of controllers that look to improve the way we record. Why add modulation, filter cutoff or glide after a performance has been recorded, when you could do it all at once? This approach is designed to lead to more organic performances.

Price is a bit steep for our studio at the moment (£949!!) but as the price of this tech comes down, expect to see it in more studios.
