Pipes is the latest product from Synesthesia Corp, the minds behind The Mandala, The Eyris, and the Dimension Beam. Pipes is the culmination of years of research and development on sampling, triggering and creating the most original, unique music via the smartest tools.
Because Pipes is something bigger and bolder, aimed at a much wider audience, the team behind Pipes has decided to crowd source the capital needed to deliver the most robust and feature-filled product possible. This is more than just an instrument, it's a collaborative computer built on an open source platform, capable of enhancements and upgrades via new software which can be developed both by the manufacturer and the community of Pipes users. Therefore, it makes perfect sense to develop and ideate with consumers as we grow.
We have a complete working prototype called The Black Box, with a 5" touch screen running the latest version of PipesOS. It has almost all of the functionality promised in the version we'll release when we hit our goals. What's missing is the custom hardware enclosure and the assignable, variable infinity knob/button. Short of that, everything else is almost ready to go.
We will be at the NAMM show at the end of this month showing our progress to the industry, please come by our booth #9701 if you are attending, we'd love to show you how amazing Pipes is with a personal demo.
We have three new t-shirt designs and you can sport these right now by heading over to our Threadless store. Help support Pipes and look cool in one smooth move.
