Buying Choices
The latest addition to the Axyz product line, this is a motion sensitive sound device designed for the table top. Passing the hand (or anything else) over the invisible 3D sphere above the product the user activates the infared control of the unit tweaking up to 5 parameters , resulting in 'dramatic synthesized sound'. The airSynth sound-set includes 50 staccato, percussive, legato continuous pads, drum sounds and sounds that emulate things in nature. The simple user "third eye" consists of a single knob, which is used to select, engage, bypass, freeze and release a given sound, and an LED that indicates the current program. "Playing" airSynth involves pressing the knob to engage the effect and then moving a hand through the invisible infrared sphere to create sounds. One thing that struck us was the physical size of this unit. It's not as small as you'd think and is reassuringly chunky. Shipping spring the unit will be $249 RRP
