The Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1 is a new kind of digital instrument that adapts to the way you want to play. It's the first MIDI instrument that lets you strum, slide, tap, and drum any sound on a single interface. Play your favourite sounds and samples using multiple positions and a range of intuitive techniques. Revolutionary digital strings let you easily customize tunings, switch between fretted & fretless modes, and even control effects and bends with pressure sensitivity.

The INSTRUMENT 1 is MPE MIDI class-compliant and works with all of your favourite MIDI production software. You can also connect to your favorite apps & music-making programs across iOS, Mac, and Windows including GarageBand, Ableton Live, Logic Pro X, and more. Take your music-making on the go with built-in speakers, all-day battery life, direct iOS connection, and MIDI MPE compatibility.


  • FRETTED OR FRETLESS - Turn frets on and off. The INSTRUMENT 1 is the first digital string-like instrument to support fretless playability, and is revolutionary for violinists, bassists, and anyone interested in sliding between notes.

  • 78 NOTE LOCATIONS - The 12 fret (full octave) fingerboard offers a total of 78 note locations more than any other MIDI controller at its size.

  • PRESSURE-SENSITIVE - The INSTRUMENT 1's interface is continuously pressure-sensitive, allowing for powerful control over software instruments via polyphonic aftertouch. And yes, it's MPE MIDI class-compliant.

  • TILT - INSTRUMENT 1's onboard accelerometer controls mod-wheel and adds a new dimension of expression to your music-making. Watch >>

  • LEFTIES REJOICE - retunes for left and right-handed players. Or for those who only play Elizabeth Cotton-style, manually select your preference and lock it into place.

  • STRING BEND - strings and unlock Stevie Ray Vaughan mode by applying a little pressure to the fingerboard.

  • ALL-DAY BATTERY - your heart out without running out. The INSTRUMENT 1's rechargeable battery lasts for 6+ hours even when playing at 11.

  • LIGHTWEIGHT - 1.6 lb bass/piano/synth goes with you anywhere, sounds like anything, and will fit in your carry-on (we've done it).

  • SIMPLE TO SET UP - One-cable connection lets you start creating in seconds. No special drivers needed.
