The connected ring for musicians is now available for pre-order through Kickstarter.
Enhancia is currently offering pre-sales for its Neova MIDI Ring as part of a Kickstarter campaign. With 16 days left to go, the company has already surpassed its fundraising goal. The unique connected ring is designed to add effects to a musician's performance via intuitive hand gestures.
"As a musician, I believe that emotion is the purpose of each melody. In musical performance, subtlety is a key. Every intention, every micro-gesture should be captured to reflect the intensity of your feeling as truthfully as possible. We imagined Neova with the simple idea of creating the shortest path between your musical intention and music creation," said Enhancia's co-founder and CEO Damien Le Boulaire.
Neova is a MIDI ring controller that gives musicians the ability to create musical effects through simple hand gestures. The device features 9 motion sensors to recognize five gestures, including Vibrato, Bend and Tilt for enhancing play with a user's hand on the instrument, and Wave and Roll for letting musicians control their music in the air. In addition to the ring, the package comes with a hub that connects via USB to a computer or via MIDI with supported instruments. Neova can synchronize to any DAW and is compatible with any software synthesizers and MIDI controllers. Likewise, the company has developed the Plume plugin with hundreds of sound presets natively mapped specifically to the ring.
Pre-orders for the Enhancia Neova MIDI Ring are currently available via Kickstarter until May 17 with early bird packages starting at around $255. Units are expected to start shipping in March 2019.
