Description

The sounds are pretty impressive, especially when you start to jazz them up a bit with the effects sliders. While the patent and fcc documents note that the areas could be denoted within the memory, I think it’s hard coded in the firmware and the module is just storing parameters for the module type. The Joué Play was imagined and designed to give access to musical practice with simplicity and immediate fun, whatever your age, background or musical level.

The device is versatile, allowing numerous configurations combining keyboard and MIDI controllers, and it is eminently playable as well, although the vibrato response can be a little difficult to master. Since then I didn’t have the opportunity to try the new models that have supposedly a better touch sensitivity. Pressure-sensitive, MPE-capable, configurable multi-touch MIDI controllers seem to be like buses: you wait ages then two come along (almost) at once. I have dug mine out again recently though, because its absolutely my favourite controller for MPE Y gestures. The MPE controller is accessible to beginners but is a powerful tool to help experienced musicians create new patterns, with an additional editor app for deeper control.I was strangely able to fiddle with the exact placement of my fingers to get the full aftertouch values while in the same “general” horizontal plane so I think there are 8 horizontal strips, with even and odd strips being shared for the 4 horizontal “areas. Adjust the tempo of your song, or the volume of each track directly from the app or go even further by experimenting with in-app effects that can be controlled on your pads. Play and experiment with a multitude of effects by varying the pressure of your fingers to adjust their intensity.

Available with the Pro option, the Joué Editor software allows you to edit each MIDI message sent by the Play Pads.The buttons on the keyboard modules are assumed to be mapped to MIDI channel select, so that you can flip instantly between two instruments. On that front, I tried finding a whitepaper on the multiplexer chip that takes the board input, to maybe see if that was the source of the problem, but I came up with nada. I hoped it was just a firmware issue but when I asked on the official forum that they used to run years ago, they said it was a sensor limitation. The manual sensibly warns against attempting to use this second port for anything other than the editor. Switch pads on the fly to instantly transform your Joue Play into a guitar, piano, drums or keyboard and explore their assigned sound banks.
