The first motion controller for iOS music apps & more - out now!


Originally presented at CES 2014, iRing is a brand new wearable and highly affordable controller for iOS music apps and more, which allows for touch-less parameter control via state-of-the-art motion-tracking technology. Make music or control effects just by waving your hands. Whether you’re a pro, a beginner, or somewhere in between, iRing will amaze you. Be one of the first users of this amazing new technology!

iRing utilizes a wearable ring with identifiable markers, the mobile device’s front-facing camera, and advanced computer vision with highly-optimized recognition algorithms built-in to an app, to determine the precise positioning of the ring markers. The device camera picks up the positioning of the ring patterns and the apps convert that information into music commands for dedicated app or MIDI information, which any compatible music app can read. This means that a user can now operate up to six controllable music parameters in their preferred music apps with one or two hands gestures.

Also included are two free apps for music applications, which target everyone from music lovers to DJs to seasoned musicians: iRing Music Maker and iRing FX/Controller.

iRing Music Maker is a free app that gives music lovers and DJs a fun new way to create
music and grooves using hand gestures, no matter what their skill level. iRing Music Maker
 utilizes music “loops” that always sound good together and can be remixed in virtually limitless
 combinations by simply waving the hands with the iRing controllers in front of the device’s 
camera. To learn more about iRing Music Maker, watch this video playlist.

iRing FX/Controller is the app for skilled musicians and DJs that is both a real-time audio 
effects processor and a MIDI controller with fully assignable parameters. It can be used as a
 touch-less outboard audio effects processor, or can be fully configured to send multiple 
simultaneous MIDI parameters; such as control changes, notes or any other MIDI messages.

 To learn more about iRing Music Maker, watch this video playlist.

For music app developers, we have an SDK and a FREE licensing program available upon request for developers who want to take advantage of this breakthrough technology to integrate motion control into their apps.

Pricing & Availability

iRing costs $24.99/€19.99 (ex. taxes), and is be available in three colors (white, green and grey) at music and electronics retailers worldwide. Pre-orders are already available on the IK Multimedia online store and selected stores. iRing FX/Controller and iRing Music Maker apps will be available as free downloads from the App Store.

For those unfamiliar, we've uploaded a VERY short video "commercial" for iRing. It's no Apple TV ad like the one featuring our other apps and accessory, but it'll do ;)

We have many videos, ranging from a very quick overview to tutorials on setting up advanced control of applications like Traktor and Ableton Live on our YouTube channel too.
We updated GrooveMaker 2 to support iRing control recently, and here's a video of iRing being used with GrooveMaker 2:
