Soundmachines Visual Turntable

Check out this custom designed installation of a new turntable like instrument designed by Berlin based studio The Product. Soundmachines consists of three unique discs, each controlling a track in Ableton Live.

Three units, which are resembling standard record players, translate concentric visual patterns into control signals for further processing in any music software. The rotation of the discs, each holding three tracks, can be synced to a sequencer.

Soundmachines premiered on the Volkswagen New Beetle stand at the IAA motor show in late Summer 2011. In cooperation with the sounddesigner/producer Yannick Labbé of Trickski fame.

    Looks pretty, and also looks pretty useless… Very one trick pony style. Nice design and all but it’s kinda a glorified music box or player piano

  2. This would be fresh for a club or venue setup! It’s elegance and design are like nothing ive ever seen in a controller..Truly unique..It must be from the future……Wow!
