Yamaha Tenori-On

The Tenori-On is a compact little 16x16 matrix of LED switches, which can be used to create all sorts of electronic music with a very hands-on experience - complete with a lot of visual feedback from the flashing LEDs.

Below is one of the official demonstration videos of the Yamaha Tenori-On in action...

And here is a video of I am Robot and Proud trying the Tenori-On...

The Tenori-On appears to be a self contained portable MIDI sequencer, with SD-card slot and inbuilt speakers. It can also be connected to a computer via MIDI if you wish.

For those interested in reading more, here are its technical specifications, and the official Tenori-On website.

I'd be really interested to hear your thoughts on this new musical gadget, and if you've tried it out let us know!

oh I have to have one of these! The sounds on this things are too fucking cool for school. Yeah, definitely perfect for electronic music, but I can see myself using this for some of my off-the-wall hip-hop.

It'll do what it do till it done
