Beluga Sampler

The Beluga is an electronic instrument that has a simple, intuitive interface. It resembles a maracca, an instrument many inexperienced musicians gravitate towards, and functions similar to one.

Shake to make a sound, squeeze to add effects. Shaking to the left, center, and right make different sounds that the user can program/ record in.

Most electronic samplers/ synthesizers on the market lack the visceral quality of traditional instruments. The weight, the physical movement required to create a sound, and also the acoustics of the sound box.

The Beluga attempts to deal with those problems by having the optimal weight, requiring physical movement to activate it, producing its own sound with a speaker and a sound box, while still providing the user the flexibility of an electronic instrument.
