Music is a beautiful way to positively connect people and inventor Ravi Ruparel and sound engineer, Jakub Benacka, hope the Cuebe can achieve that.

Building on the development of sample-based machines and synthesisers made by the likes of Yamaha and Rolandin, the Cuebe allows users to learn how to play over 100 different instruments on a muli-purpose, electronic piano-esq cube.

Using its three-octave scale laid out across its six sides, each key on the Cuebe is linked to acoustics and electronic sounds of the likes of a piano, electric guitar, synthesisers and various percussion and orchestral instruments.

The Cuebe’s 3D-printed design allows users to touch and play one of 37 different keys which all individually trigger a note from a library of over 100 sound samples.

The standard Cuebe is aimed at families and musical beginners, while a pro version targets those looking for recording studio standard and live performances.

The Cuebe is still in development but more information can be found at Cuebe online.
