A Ninstrument is a custom built rack mountable sound module that can accommodate any number of vintage gaming systems to produce unique era centric sounds. We use only ORIGINAL HARDWARE in our systems. We don’t use emulators or knock-off type products.
-Its 2012. There are too many software synthesizers. In 1-2 days nobody will remember the plugin or iPad app you released. They all have underdeveloped preset banks. Nobody can even keep up with the blog posts for these things Don't!
- Don't make another hardware instrument without a built-in pattern sequencer or song sequencer! How are people supposed to make music? most people can't play keys or even know what midi does!
- Don't have a software editor on your hardware synth. They end up being buggy as hell. The reason hardware exists is to have knobs! Actual controls. 1 knob per function or don't bother. Can you guarantee your editor will work with Windows 9000? No you can't.

This site will be joining the internet blackout Jan 18th to protest internet censorship and government control. The site will be "offline" with a redirected homepage. Also, the site will be moving from evil Godaddy hosting, as soon as convenient. There has been no problem with our host, but they clearly lack leadership and responsibility. In the meantime the "censorship" bar will be displayed, which links to an anti-censorship resource.
The fact I have to do this is kind of annoying, but I had no idea that government would try to turn our the internet into the plot from Metal Gear Solid 2. I'd hope international people would also protest.

So far we have small korg-like mod wheels, a cryptic model name, and maybe some step faders/switches?
Unless we find it does something new sound-wise, I'm not looking forward to it yet.

I love all the inputs. This looks like the best hardware controller I've ever seen. If the software is good, you might not need Ableton anymore. Awesome.
