You'll be notified about news and stock updates for this project.

Hamster Mix is a portable MIDI controller powered by Arduino that connects via MIDI over Bluetooth. It allows you to control effects as well as play MIDI notes within 5 octaves. The twelve keys and the ability to switch up and down through octaves makes it easy to control an entire keyboard pianos worth of notes with our compact controller, which is about the size of a hamster. Hamster Mix connects to Mac, PC, Ipad, and even mobile phones through Bluetooth. You can control any MIDI enabled music program such as Ableton, Garage Band, FL Studio, Reaper, and more. Two additional buttons and two potentiometers allow you to set your own custom effects. You can even use the buttons as a Bluetooth track launcher instead of as a keyboard.

You can control phone apps with MIDI support such as GarageBand, FL Studio Mobile, Reason Compact, Audiokit Synth One, Moog apps, and more. Use Hamster Mix to make music on the go with a device that fits in your pocket, meaning no wires and no bulky equipment.
