Miscellaneous Information

AC Sabre is a revolutionary wireless MIDI instrument and motion controller for electronic music producers, composers, performers and DJs which brings the dynamic richness and performance energy of traditional instruments to your digital music library, in a way that is not possible with the existing studio and stage tools.

"A very unique and sophisticated virtual musical instrument" –The Next Web.

AC Sabre reads your movements with the built-in gyroscope and accelerometer and translates them into musical actions. It lets you pluck invisible strings in the air while controlling up to 7 additional parameters, intuitively with your movements, via MIDI CC messages.

"I had to check AC Sabre out and it immediately lived up to the hype...surreal and instinctive...like Augmented Reality" –Discchord.

PLEASE NOTE: AC Sabre contains no sounds of its own. You'll need a computer with MIDI compatible music software (Ableton, Logic, Cubase, FLStudio, Reason, Garage Band, Massive, Kontakt, Sylenth...), or other apps which support MIDI input (Animoog, Nave).

  • Use AC Sabre to compose distinctive hooks that go beyond the MIDI keyboard.
  • Conduct automation in realtime with human sensitivity instead of spending painful hours with the mouse.
  • Add sophisticated musical elements without the need for years of theory and training.

DJs & Performers:

  • Play electronic instruments without being shackled to your gear.
  • Introduce spontaneity into your live digital performances.
  • Infuse signature attitude and style into your performances.
