This week's show is all about the Knight's of the Round Table. The Reactable that is. And the knight's? That'll be its inventors, Sergi Jorda, Marcos Alonse, Martin Kaltenbrunner and Gunter Geiger, all graduates of the Music Technology Group at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona.

As far as the instrument goes, well it's either a complete rethink of the way synthesis is perceived, or it's just a Mini Moog made out of salt 'n' pepper pots.
Nice, though...V-e-r-y nice. Simon Power

I saw it before, but it remains as stunning and well executed a design as it ever was. What I particularly like is how well thought out the user interface is and I'd love to see some kind of version of this that works with a touch screen.
