Solista Digital Interface Musical Instrument

Solista is a digital instrument that uses a variety of sounds and techniques to create a layered mixed song. Furthermore, songs can be simultaneously created and shared by different users when Solista is connected to an iPhone, and they can be recorded in digital format without the need for microphones. Solista is a MIDI instrument that uses a variety of sounds and techniques to create a layered mixed song; melodies are layered with the melody neck, rhythms with the beat pads, and different musical genres of the melodies and/or beats are controlled with the buttons next to the iPhone on the headstock. Each melody or beat can be looped so the performer can focus on the subsequent layer of the song. Furthermore, songs can be simultaneously created and shared by different users when Solista is connected to an iPhone, creating a “Network Band,” which can also be recorded in digital format (microphones are not necessary).
