Turn your environment into a musical instrument
Make Musical Ear-Works More Sticky!
That title didn't really work did it? ^
Anyways, I wanted to mention how it's a tool that you can make music out of any item. Put it on your window, door, cup, car, couch, tv, anything and use it to make your music.
Mogees gives you an entire world of new creative possibilities. Just stick the Mogees sensor to anything around you and play the world! - source
Yes, it does work this well.
How it works
Quite literally stick it to the item you want to be the instrument and plug it into your iOS device.
Record your gesture so that the sensor and app can detect what your using to make sound with.
In the Mogees app, choose the sound you want and even tweak it to your specifications.
Be that cool person in public just hitting random objects but really you're secretly making music.
This is the video that sold me on it, and wil sell ou on it as well.
The Mogees device is quite alike a contact microphone. It captures every vibration, and is the first contact microphone you can use with mobile devices. You can also use it with audio equiment on your computer!
To iterate on this more, it's plug and play but it has a lot going on inside. It's simple to use. You plug it in, attach it to some surface, hit it a couple of times and even scratch the surface, try different gestures. The mogees will separate these different movements and timbral sounds into different sounds. Magic.
MIDI is outdated and the industry standard at the same time. You're able to sync Mogees with your tracks and DAW by using midi. So you are able to load your favorite drum samples, Vsts, other midi controlled fx with the Mogees.
Ever wanted a contact mic to just record cool sounds like that? Well you can use the Mogees as just that as well for limitless potential with sound design.
The Mogees is compatible with iOS (both iphone and ipad), Mac and Windows.

MUON Sound Engine
For those who understand, MUON is an engine developed for Mogees. It features physical modelling and resynthesis. It replicates the vibration patterns found in the material you are using as an instrument the quality and nuances, and is able to re-synthesize this into whatever sound you want but using those same nuances. This is the future of music. THIS IS THE FUTURE OF MUSIC PRODUCTION.
I own one!
I personally own one of these and have found it as an amazingly expressive tool. I have used it previously to turn my desk into a drumset, which is a high goal to have.
$93.99 and WELL worth it.
