TimeFrog II: MIDI Gesture Control Surface & Instrument

Check out the TimeFrog II from Undead Instruments, a new hybrid MIDI controller/MIDI instrument that should appeal to producers and DJ’s that want to experiment with their live set up.

The spin/inertial sensor provides a totally new kind of control surface, which opens new way for playing with parameters. The 8 endless encoders, 4 potentiometers and 6 buttons form a functional and compact device. There is also an embedded 4 steps sequencer: 4×4 steps x 6 voices.

See it in action in this demo by Richard Devine:

This patch was setup in Ableton Max For Live using only two instances of SonicCharge’s Synplant software synthesizer. These two patches where customized and designed to work with the TimeFrog II. Creating for some very unique musical gestures. All sequencing and note generation is from the TimeFrog controller.

TimeFrog is an open hardware platform so it’s only a matter of time before we start seeing some cool experiments with this interesting device.
