Aodyo Instruments Launches LOOM Multidimensional MPE MIDI Controller

Aodyo Instruments has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Loom, a new multidimensional MPE MIDI controller.

Building on expertise developed through the creation of their Sylphyo and Anyma synthesizers, Aodyo Instruments says that they have designed Loom to provide musicians with a versatile and powerful tool for live performances, studio recordings, and bedroom compositions


  • Playing modes: Includes keyboard, ribbon, strum, and drumkit modes, with more to be added via software updates. All are customizable with the included editor. Third-party development is also encouraged via a developer mode.
  • Multidimensional multitouch surface: Allows independent control of pitch (X), timbre (Y), and dynamics (Z) for each finger.
  • Available in two or three-octave configurations. Enhanced control: Provides unique sensors that complement the main surface: thumb- activated tactile sliders and bars on the front and back edge, as well as a pressure-sensitive action zone on the left.
  • Built for MPE and legacy MIDI: Optimized for MPE (MIDI Polyphonic Expression), but fully compatible with non-MPE MIDI instruments, with easy connection via USB-C or MIDI TRS cable with a wide range of hardware and software.

Production of the Aodyo Instruments Loom is being funded via a Kickstarter project, and it is available to project backers starting at €259, which is 35% off the planned retail price. The project has already met its funding goal.

*Note: Crowdfunded projects can involve risk. See the project site for more information.
