Merci c est parfait
The TouchMe is an excellent MIDI controller that perfectly fulfills every promise made on the pages of its website.
The negative notes are borne by the packaging, which is a bit too light for an international shipment. It still arrived to me in very good condition, but it would take very little to damage it.
Inside the package are many stickers (nice! thanks!) but no manuals and, most importantly, no case. A few less stickers and a small extra case, even in plain canvas, would perhaps be better.
It makes music making interactive and accessible to everybody. I plan to use it not only to create some music, but also in my job as music teacher. Would be nice to have a dedicated app to program its note selection, but I think I can do that with midi FX within Ableton live
I love it. It’s really amazing controller touchme
I've been using Playtronica controllers for a couple months now and I love both (Touch Me and Playtron).
I like the "raw" aspect of the controllers, light, no enclosure but still attractive and solid. Except for the micro USB port, and that's why I only put 4 stars of 5: it's only lightly soldered to the board and mine has broken even if I use my toys carefully (and the same thing happened to one of my Playtrons). It would be nice if Playtronica could make this part more solid in a near future.
Of course there are a lot of stuff that could be added to a new version, such as the ability to choose the midi channel on the device or thank to an app, transpose midi notes or import custom scales; why note MIDI connection over bluetooth or wifi, or even just a standard MIDI DIN or minijack output...
But then it would be another product (or its evolution) and actually one thing I love about Touch Me and Playtron is that it's a very simple tool, pretty solid and that I can use straight forward without too many settings to adjust and this simplicity leads to a cheap product that lots of people (even non musicians) can afford. And the limits of the gear often leads to creativity and new sources of inspiration!
For me, it has opened many doors allready and I keep having new ideas of art and musical installations using these toys, it's an infinte playground! As I keep following the news and take part in the group community exchanges on Playtronica's forums, I also must say I like…
