Wave-o-Matic is a music performance controller designed to give you more expressional freedom when playing electronic music live sets. It allows you to control external synthesizers and music software with simple hand gestures. The unique visual appearance and the light feedback of the device give your performance a visual style that really engages you and your audience. Wave-o-Matic works with five ultrasonic sensors detecting user hand movements and gestures.
