A very unique drum machine has been created by Oddball Studios, based in London. Which allows you to create music intuitively by bouncing a ball. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the new Kickstarter project which is already raised over £54,000 thanks to over 760 backers with still 23 days remaining on its campaign. Oddball is pressure sensitive, the harder you bounce it the more intense the sound, the lighter you bounce it the more delicate the sound produced.
The Oddball drum machine consists two parts, the ball, and the app. The ball behaves as the percussion trigger, every time you bounce it off a surface, sensors at the heart of the ball communicate with the app via Bluetooth to play a sound through your headphones, speakers, or just the internal speaker on your phone.
“You can loop your beats to make complex, intricate tunes, play over your favourite songs and add effects. Since Oddball is inherently shareable, the app will have it’s own social environment, where you can post your latest beats and share them with your community. One of the great things about Oddball is that you can play with multiple balls at the same time. Simply plug in a speaker, choose different sounds and jam with your mates “.
The unique drum machine is now available to back with early bird pledges available from £59 or $34 offering a 30 percent discount off the recommended retail price. If all goes well worldwide deliveries expected to take place during January 2019.
