Beatbox DIY MIDI Controller
At first, this piece of cardboard box looks like a kids toy but it is something more than that. I would call Beatbox as a DIY music instrument. This is 100% DIY which means everything has to be assembled by yourself based on the instructions manual included in the package. A lot of connective wires are involved, don’t mess it up.
Beatbox has rhythm pads, tuning knobs, and integrated speakers. The speakers are okayish and are not too loud. You can use it as a stand-alone music maker or connect it to your phone or laptop to do some cool things like recording, mixing, etc. Since it uses a cardboard casing, Beatbox is very light. When I tried it during the CES 2020 event, I felt that the buttons were quite hard and rigid.
The sound quality of the speakers was average and it was definitely not easy for me to use because I am not a musician or used to these devices. Overall, Beatbox is a cool ‘Do It Yourself’ musical instrument with MIDI support.
