Sonic Joy Awards 2017 – Our Best Of The Year


BEST CONTROLLERS/SEQUENCERS – 2017

Expressive E Touché

Touché is a sort of expression pedal on steroids for your hands. It gives you a unique tactile approach to both software and hardware synthesizers, using pressure from your hands to shape and control their sound. It might not be cheap, but Touché is a deep and well thought-out device that can breath new life into all your synths.

Polyend SEQ

SEQ is a 32 step, 8 polyphonic track, polyphonic step sequencer.

Arturia Minilab MKII

Considering the build quality and the software bundle it comes with, at $99/€99 this is beyond the ‘no-brainer’ category. A must-buy if you’re shopping for a 2-octave USB controller (and don’t need MIDI DIN or CV connections).
