A Create Digital Music Holiday Gift Guide – All Under $200 – Show the Folks!

The Create Digital Music Blog just released a Holiday Gift Guide on their site today. They cover everything from software, to hardware, to accessories, and best of all, it’s all under $200. If you love music gear as much as me, you’re definitely gonna wanna check this out:

“Now, normally “gift guides” tend to pick items you’d rarely buy as a gift. So, speaking of restrictions, this year I’m imposing a price limit: $200 maximum, meaning the kinds of things you actually would buy as gifts. (There are many worthy items above $200, but I’m assuming anyone spending more than that already has made up their minds.) And, we went to you, the readers, to tip us off on the items that mattered.

Reactable – Things just keep getting stranger

This would be super addicting..someone needs to make an online version of this!!

From the Reactablesite:

We created Reactable Systems with the vision to redefine the way we interact with computers. Using the knowledge we gained through the Reactable musical instrument we are developing intuitive products focused on the promotion of creativity and the mediation of culture. In order to achieve this we are applying the latest technologies in human computer interaction, music technology, graphics and computer vision.

Reactable Systems is a spin-off company of the Pompeu Fabra Universityand is collaborating with its Music Technology Group, one of the worlds largest research labs in music technology.

Our first product is the Reactable, a novel musical instrument that has gained international reputation and received several worldwide awards. Based on the successful concept of the Reactable we are working on new applications enhancing the technology and expanding its applications.

How Tech is Changing the Tone of Music as We Know it


Here I’m going to introduce you to 4 music technologies in particular that have already begun to change the music landscape as we know it. Let’s get right into it.

The Cubes:

First we have Percussa’s Audio Cubes. They’re some of the coolest new music making “instruments” out right now. Here’s how they work, straight from Percussa’s website:

“Each AudioCube is identical. You connect them with a USB cable to your computer, one after the other, and assign a colour and behaviour. After that, they work wirelessly with each other, and use their four onboard infrared sensors to communicate and measure distances to objects nearby. One cube stays connected, to pass the information from the cubes to the software on your computer.”  More Here.
