Artiphon’s Chorda: Empowering Beat Production Anywhere with Innovative ‘Band in a Box’
In terms of connectivity, the Chorda can control MIDI-based software and hardware instruments via USB-C or Bluetooth. It seamlessly integrates with most popular digital audio workstations (DAWs), including GarageBand, Ableton, Logic, Pro Tools, Cubase, and FL Studio. The instrument supports standard MIDI and MPE-compatible mobile apps or hardware. However, the Chorda’s battery life is relatively modest, providing approximately four hours of use per charge.
The Artiphon Chorda is available for pre-order through Kickstarter and comes in three colors: black, white, and blue. Early bird pricing starts at around $200, but as tiers sell out, the cost will increase. Shipping of the instruments is expected to begin in November.
