New Instrument, InstaChord, is Part Omnichord & Part Guitar

Yuichi Nagata has launched a crowdfunding project to fund production of an international version of the InstaChord, a new electronic instrument that is part Omnichord & part guitar.

Like the Omnichord, it features chord buttons that control which the notes that can be triggered when you strum it. But the InstaChord is held and played more like a guitar.

It can be used anywhere, because it has a rechargeable battery, headphone jack and built-in speaker. It has a built in sound module with 128 sounds. In addition, it has MIDI out via USB-C and Bluetooth LE.

The current domestic model has sold over 5,000+ units sold in Japan. The crowdfunding project will support the work needed to meet international certificate requirements.
