Oval is a digital instrument that can fit an entire playable drum set of sound in comfortably into your lap. Its appearance falls somewhere in between a flying saucer or a sterile Simon Says toy, but its performance capabilities and portability is unparalleled. This small physical object syncs with a smartphone, tablet, or computer to create any sound you desire.
The touchpads on this little drum set are gesture sensitive, using velocity and X/Y to turn the entire surface into a controller for you to layer. And Bluetooth functionality allows you to bring this device anywhere you can bring your electronic host device in order to make excellent, customized music and sound wherever you go.
