The device is versatile, allowing numerous configurations combining keyboard and MIDI controllers, and it is eminently playable as well, although the vibrato response can be a little difficult to master. If I remember correctly, it’s just “which overlay, what serial number, and which sensor was it detected on”. For beginners, it’s fun and rewarding to play – the developers mention teaching music to kids as one application, and that’s certainly something it’s primed for.

This does need a bit of setting up: after some experimentation I discovered that setting a glissando value of 48 semitones in the Joué editor resulted in the correct pitch generation while gliding between keys — at least, that certainly seemed to be the case with Equator and Cypher2.Turn the Keys Pad into a mixing console or tune the Guitar Pad into a left-handed guitar: the possibilities are endless. Since the projects are routing MIDI by channel, they don't attempt to make use of MPE (which is only a loss for Bitwig, since Live doesn't support MPE anyway), so if you want to adapt these projects as a starting point you'll need to turn off MPE for any modules you want to use. Alternative strategy one is to detect colliding aftertouch data (this can be detected by a sudden drop in aftertouch output for a note, followed by another note on event) and use its output for all notes, until the collision stops. I had the original one, long before they decided to offer separate Play and Pro versions, with a Pro firmware upgrade path for the Play.

Faders can also individually be set into 'relative' mode, where a touch-and-slide gesture moves the value up or down from its current setting, with a user-specified scaling factor. No need to spend hours on overly complex music software, enjoy the simplified version of essential music creation tools in the Joue Play App. The Pro option is a firmware upgrade that gives you full access to the Joué Editor, with MIDI mapping and MPE specification.All image and audio content is used by permission of the copyright holders or their agents, and/or according to fair dealing as per the UK Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. You’ll need to attach the relevant pad to enable the different categories of sound and the app actually supports up to eight boards being connected, should you want to collaborate in real-time. And when both fingers apply maximum pressure, the aftertouch values for each finger end up being about half the maximum aftertouch value. I’m thinking the time-resolution will be appropriately larger so you “whitelist” an input from the function if it shows an appropriate magnitude or time-resolution. Express yourself in the moment with natural gestures and enjoy all the spontaneity and expressiveness of acoustic instruments.

Joué Play is equipped with a multi-touch sensor sensitive to changes in pressure and its unique expressiveness is based on the know-how developed in the case of its predecessor Lemur, a pioneer of multi-touch controllers. For more experienced players, there’s the MPE functionality and this is one of the most affordable ways to get into the MPE control world. Channel aftertouch is generated in isolation from each pad, so if you press multiple pads at once, the value transmitted will jump around inconsistently.You can consider the Joué itself to be something of a blank slate which is configured by the choice of modules installed on it. I didnt want to get stressed about it so rather than bang my head against a brick wall, I just put the device back in its box and mostly forgot all about it for several years. It feels like a premium product with an amazing finish and will definitely start conversations wherever you pull one out of your rucksack.

This starts an inertia function which then calculates the true values by looking at the number of inputs, increasing it by some appropriate factor, and subtracting it or adding it based on the last inputs. There can be several reasons why you may experience latency when using any MIDI controller with a Bluetooth audio device. Joué have confirmed that this is a bug which will be addressed, so that channel aftertouch will be output smoothly regardless of the number of pads being pressed. However the orientation has to be set in the editor, and then loaded into the module: the Joué isn't capable of determining that by itself.Practice by learning the basics or by replaying a selection of famous songs step by step through a series of video tutorials, also available as projects in the Joue Play App. You can of course create your own projects, and choose a suitable sound pack: a wide range of genres are covered. The silicone modules afford some 'give' when pressed, making the surface a bit more haptic than the Sensel Morph, but with a lot less movement than a ROLI Seaboard. Gestures and areas (X, Y or Z) can be mapped on each pad to control any parameters or modulate your sound. Play and experiment with a multitude of effects by varying the pressure of your fingers to adjust their intensity.
