CHAIR is making digital instruments with analog interfaces. Our mission is to make sounds tangible. That's why we are developing instruments with haptic interfaces for electronic sound - both analog and software synthesis. Our Instruments have excitable surfaces that you can scratch, hit or bow. A very limited run of our developer edition will soon be available here.
The desktop version comes in a brushed stainless steel frame with recessed side panels in naturally waxed oak wood. The modular version has a 36 HP width in the Eurorack. Depending on the firmware, both versions are capable to either send touch position and vibration data via the microUSB port or the excitation signal and CV for x, y and gate. The instrument also features an external input port which lets you override the internal surface sensor and lets you connect future extensions.
We are looking for partners and collaborations to rise to the next level. If you have questions, comments, critique or compliments, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
