What is the minijam studio

We are taking the idea of a music studio or live performance setup, built entirely out of hardware, and boiled it down to a range of very compact and affordable products. The set includes a drum machine, a wavetable synthesizer, an analog filter, a mixer and a speaker. It gives you the feel and fun of jamming with hardware equipment, all bundled in a ready-to-use set with an impressive sound quality.

Each device is powered by a rechargeable battery and can be used standalone or as part of the set. You don’t need any software or mobile phone. Our mixer allows you to also integrate other hardware with it’s trigger syncing feature.
