Snapp: Sound Sketching Kit

Snapp is a device that helps novices and amateurs create music.

In response to the steep learning curve presented by overly complex music-making software, Snapp provides an intuitive interface that encourages users to begin creating immediately. The device’s dedicated app helps users understand how their favorite songs are constructed, while its touchpad encourages them to capture their own musical ideas as they happen. These ‘sound sketches’ provide an easy entry to composing music, extending the casual, unintimidating approach of sketching to sound.
