The Reactable Live! is the result of many years of research in the field of computer music and human-computer interaction. The Reactable Live! interface is clean and direct, without text lists or endless config menus, it puts the whole music creation process in the hands of the musician. Only by designing the hardware and software together could we create a completely new instrument that truly is a step ahead of anything else in the market.
HOW IT WORKS
The way a Reactable works is deeply inspired by modular analogue synthesizers, such as those developed by Bob Moog, and brings them to a whole new level by adding completely new concepts of sampling and digital effects processing. On the Reactable the modules are tangible objects placed on a multi-touch surface and identified by the computer through fiducials. They are managed automatically based on their types and affinities and on their proximity. This allows an intuitive approach to sound creation and control and makes it easy to work with.
