Specktr controls the sound, light and video


Speckts, using MIDI protocol, is compatible with hundred of softwares and application within many fields. During a live show, you can use Specktr to control lightings (MIDI to DMX) or video but many other solutions such as Arduino for instance.

There are so many things to do with Specktr and we’re looking forward to see how you’re using it.





▪ How does it work?


The Specktr Play and the Specktr Por controllers are made of:

-        A glove with textile sensors to detect the position of your fingers. Each combination of the hand can be associated with a MIDI control, allowing you hundreds of possibilities. 

-        An electronic unit to recognize the accurate movements of your hand. Specktr detects many predefined gestures to ease your experience.


Check out our website to discover all possibilities :




L'application fournie avec le gant permet quant à elle de changer les paramètres de contrôle du gant. Ainsi vous pourrez adapter les contrôles suivant les applications.

Les possibilités de contrôles sont infinies, et vous aurez le choix entre plus de 1500 contrôles différents et simultanés pour créer un contrôleur sur mesure.


▪ Why Specktr? Where does it come from?


Musicians are, nowadays, facing 3 main issues.


1.Lack of adaptation:


Controllers are, most of them, using the same kind of actuators (Potentiometers, switches, ...). The ergonomic placement of these sensors is adapted to control a DAW software type.

The musician who owns and uses multiple parallel software is then obliged to own and control multiple controllers, which represents a significant cost as well as a large footprint and therefore a loss of ergonomics.


2. The need to better express themselves :


The number of actuators being physically limited by the size of the controller, it is often impossible to control all the parameters of the associated software. Musicians are therefore obliged to compromise on the number of parameters to control simultaneously, which is a limitation for expression.


3. Lack of visual interaction with audience :


Musicians on stage, during a live show, are always looking for visual interaction with the audience. Because of the current material, hand gesture / body language are limited. Artists want stronger connection with the audience playing with the lights, videos, etc… But the current tools don’t allow them to create as much as they want.

Spektr is the solution to overcome those challenges and offer musicians an amazing freedom. The show must go on!

Why fund it?

We end now the industrial version of Specktr, we planned to deliver in March 2017.

The industrialization study is almost complete and we have the opportunity to work with companies from France. We'll make our instrument entirely in France.


The three major items of expenditure are related to textiles, the housing and electronics.

The textile glove is manufactured in collaboration with industry in our region and northern France for the manufacture of stainless steel wire, we created and for embroidery and assembly of the glove.

To achieve we need a minimum of commands to put into production.


The electronic box will be injected in transparent black polycarbonate for a professional and discreet look (now printed in 3D acrylic on photos of prototypes).

So we need to finance the production of a mold and injection cases.


Finally, the PCB will be assembled in a company specializing in France, and to offer you the best price Specktr we also need a minimum of controls.


The objective of € 30,000 we will fund much of the production start and bring what we need to produce the glove and the packaging so that you can receive a finished product at home from the month of March!


If we rich 200%, you will receive a special protective cases.


If we rich 300%, you will choose between 3 colors for the fabric.

Specktr Play is for beginners and music lovers. It allows you to simply connect to dozens of applications and music software to learn, play and mix your music simple and intuitive way. With the help of the dedicated application you can load presets from a database.

Specktr Pro adds the ability to edit or create from scratch presets, allowing you to create the controller for your needs. Some MIDI concepts will be required but the application is very intuitive.

+ 1500 controls? How is it possible ?

Multiplying all the positions of the fingers with all the possibilities of movement of the hand, there are more than 1500 control possibilities. And the figure is doubled if you own a pair of Specktr!

+ Which software and applications are compatible with Specktr?

All software and applications who accept the MIDI standard, approximately 98% of music software and applications, MIDI is the communication standard for interfaces for music.
