Types / Variants
Percussa Audiocube electronic music instrument
Audiocube portable (Speakers)
The types are determined by Usage:
We suggest a Percussa since it is the most common variant and basically because if you accidentally buy the speaker variant thinking it was the instrument, you’ll waste your money. We recommend only getting 1 when you start.
A Percussa as well, but this time multiple ones, because they can sense each other. Now that you know how to use one, you can take the instrument to the next level, by assigning more than the 4 faces a single cube can do.
This instrument, in particular, is very flexible since you only need to get close to one of the faces of the instrument, it can be played with only 1 hand, and the cube can be placed in the perfect place for a person to play it without having to move a lot, that’s because of the small size of the instrument and the fact that it’s connected only by a cable, so in theory, it should be possible to play it with the feet or a prosthetic limb no problem.
