The Bubblegum Sequencer

The Bubblegum Sequencer

The Bubblegum Sequencer looks like some sort of simple child’s toy, but it’s actually a novel way to control drum machines –a surprisingly simple interface hides the technology within. Users place colored balls within a 16 by 4 grid of circular holes corresponding to the 16th notes in a measure. A camera below the grid registers the position and color of the balls and creates beats based on where they’re located. Each color represents a distinct sample: pink is bass, green is a snare, yellow is a hand clap and purple are hi hats. New sounds can also be mapped onto any color. Great way to add fun physical interaction into a usually strict digital environment.
