New Duja instrument

Active Music Joystick have launched their brand new Duja joystick.

This new joystick, the third available from AMJ following the Thrustmaster and MADCATZ joysticks, is a unique singing instrument which can be used in connection with the various levels of AMJ software, along with providing some intriguing, exclusive new features.

They include the utilising of the special and simple sine wave audio, created within the computer upon connection with the AMJ software; providing an extensive understanding of scales (in particular, the harmonic scale), as well as an understanding of and opportunity to practice with playing specific notes in time; focusing on pitches as frequency numbers, either in steps or free changes as bands and theremin; understanding and playing the different characters available for colour and wave structures; experimenting with musical phrases; and developing knowledge and experience with utilising articulation within music.

The Duja instrument provides new elements of music control and education, and when used alongside the AMJ software, you can really develop your understanding of music creation in a great many forms.
