AC Sabre is a revolutionary wireless MIDI instrument and motion controller for electronic music producers, composers, performers and DJs, bringing dynamic performance energy to digital music.
AC Sabre is a new app from London based tech company Air Craft Media that uses your phone to control MIDI from your smartphone in a new way, with movement. AC Sabre reads your movements with the built in gyroscope and accelerometer and translates them into musical actions.
It sounds simple enough but AC Sabre has been intelligently designed to give you incredible levels of dynamic control over your digital MIDI sounds. You can pluck invisible strings, control up to 7 additional parameters with intuitive movements, incorporate performance into your playing and more.
While sound technology has advanced leaps and bounds, the tools we use for composition and performance haven’t changed in 30 years. Buttons, knobs, and faders – handy for tweaking but linear and lifeless for the performance and riff-making.
AC Sabre is a MIDI controller revolution. Experience a whole new dimension to your sound library that will have you giddy like the first time all over again.
The elegant multi-touch interface is intuitive at first touch, with depth on-demand. Immediate proficiency, but with the potential for virtuosity.
Intuitive, with Precision
Intuitive control of multiple parameters simultaneously with your movements. No gimmicks, or interpretive ‘magic’. Like all true instruments, what you intend is what you hear.
Arpeggios, harmonies, trills, vibrato, modal key changes, 200+ scales, portamento & legato. A maestro’s palette at your command.
And a little extra
Configurable touch ribbons and button, motion-mapping, note-locked pitch bending, polyphonic aftertouch, and… The Drone.
The app connects to your computer via MIDI compatible software like Ableton or Garage Band, or via apps that support MIDI input like Animoog and Nave. It is available now for £19.99 on the Apple App Store.
