Rounds: A set of four rotary knobs or encoders, operated by fingertip just within the circular ridge of each control (or, perhaps as intended, along the ridge itself). You can of course create your own projects, and choose a suitable sound pack: a wide range of genres are covered. And then at some point I think they deleted their old forum where this communication happened, so I dont even have reference to that bit of history now. Conveniently, a set of buttons beside the Joué image allow generated control messages to be filtered by X, Y and Z dimensions individually, making it much easier to use 'MIDI learn' to bind controllers to parameters in instruments and DAWs. Synth: A double-width module implementing an octave and a half of keyboard, with a selection of buttons in a row at the top.

At the top of the window, an image of the Joué itself is a drag-and-drop location for loading presets and edits. Vibrato response seemed a little temperamental, needing a bit of left-right movement before kicking in, but glissando and glide worked well enough when configured properly.I suppose another reason to wonder if it was just a firmware issue is if ‘initial note velocity’ calculations are still ok. I’ve been wanting something like a groovebox but the Joué has enough lateral accuracy without a pad to have a decent interface. When the pressure (Z) is released, the X and Y outputs snap back to 64, or any other start values you wish. While the patent and fcc documents note that the areas could be denoted within the memory, I think it’s hard coded in the firmware and the module is just storing parameters for the module type. The Joué is a slim block measuring some 36cm wide and 14cm deep, and appears to be milled out of a solid block of wood, though in fact a cursory glance at the underside reveals that it's constructed from panels glued together with almost hermetic precision.

Joué’s new Play controller, several years in development, falls into the latter camp and is unique in how it combines physical and virtual components. Using the record button directly on your Joué Play device, start recording your melody, chord or rythm with your fingertips. The sounds are pretty impressive, especially when you start to jazz them up a bit with the effects sliders.You can use RFID to harvest a little bit of energy (up to 3V at 10mA ) to charge a capacitor to run LEDs. 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. The Joue Play is a MIDI controller that can be used with all MIDI-compatible applications and music softwares. I have two versions, one which takes MPE mode data from Joue and keeps it as MPE, just converting CC74 into the appropriate midi channels channel aftertouch. In both projects, each instrument track is set up to host multiple instruments allowing selection by MIDI controller (using Chain Select in Live, or the X/Y instrument mixing container in Bitwig): you could create a controller mapping for this selection according to taste.
