How it works:

All you need is a computer, our device and your body. Trust us; it's super easy — no music knowledge required!
Grab a conductive object (water, fruits, even your own skin; anything that can conduct electricity) and touch it to trigger your first music note.
This is an ideal first step into understanding electronics: a fun toy for kids and grown-ups alike! A perfect present for all.

Here is a YouTube playlist of ideas for the Playtron. You can also check out our Instagram.

How to start
  • Connect Playtron to a computer with USB-cable
  • Open https://play.playtronica.com/ or one of our synths in Chrome browser - you don't even need special software if you don't know how to use it! Or use any sound or sample in Ableton, GarageBand, FL Studio, Logic etc.
  • Connect alligator wires as shown on the image
  • Complete the circuit by touching the ground wire with one hand and note wire with another
  • Alright, now you hear a sound and see the light flashing on the device!
  • Now connect all other notes to conductive objects, for example, fruits and vegetables!

Technical questions
Q: What is the difference between Playtron and TouchMe?
A: TouchMe is designed for two objects, for example, two people. When the intensity (area) of the touch changes, the pitch of the note changes. You can choose the key and frets to adjust to the composition.
Playtron is designed to play on 16 objects; each has its own note, which does not change depending on the touch. This way, you can make a music keyboard from any conductive objects.

Q: Does it work with phone/tablet?
A: IOS: Yes, with a Lightning to USB Camera Adapter and musical app, like GarageBand.
Android: Use standard USB adapter. We like to use Caustic app, but you can always choose your favourite app.

Q: What if I still don't understand how it works?
A: Just message us, we're happy to chat with you.

Playtronica is a delightful group of creators, educators and artistic minds.
Their MIDI controllers are quick and lovely to use and have the ability to bring people together literally.

TouchMe - music on human skin
Listen as the intensity of the sound changes with the power of your touch!
Instead of 16 on/off contacts that you get with Playtron, the TouchMe has two contacts, which measure the intensity of touch depending on the subject's surface area, muscle tension and humidity.
