Soundcool System

The Soundcool® system is based on several modules such as players, effects, virtual instruments, mixers, etc. that run on Mac or PC computers. The modules can be interconnected to each other and can be controlled with the mouse or with the free app Soundcool® OSC Android or iOS (through WiFi), with the augmented reality Hololens glasses, and/or by Kinect Xbox 360 (up to Mac Sierra or Windows 7)

The modules can interconnect with each other, and can be controlled with the mouse, with the free Soundcool® OSC Android or iOS app (for WIFI), through the augmented reality Hololens glasses, or through Xbox 360 Kinect (up to Mac Sierra or Windows 7 ).
