The talented Rabea Massaad has played around with the MOON in his setup, for a video released on his youtube channel: In the video Rabea showcases how the Aalberg system works, how the MOON and the AERO Wireless Controller can be set up in your system, and how he would use MOON in his setup.
Aalberg Audio has been focusing on wireless control of musical equipment from the very beginning. Through many years of research and development, we can assure that our products provide the fast and reliable wireless connection required by performers today. Our product lineup for this campaign consists of:
The AERO is our main wireless remote controller. It enables real time control of up to eight Aalberg FX pedals and MOON-connected devices. It can store up to three presets across all connected devices, which can then be instantly recalled from the controller. Using presets to control your sound is a powerful tool, which is described in detail in the video below.
The REMOTE app is our upcoming iOS and Android remote control app. Like the AERO, it can control up to eight devices. In addition, it can store an infinite number of presets.
The MOON: our new wireless receiver that enables control of third party musical equipment.
The MOON, the AERO and the REMOTE app all communicate using the Bluetooth 4.1 (aka Bluetooth LE aka Bluetooth Smart) protocol.
Store up to three presets across a total of eight units on the AERO Remote Control. The REMOTE app allows you to store an infinite number of presets.
Recall your presets with one press of a button on the AERO or directly from the Remote App to change the parameters of up to eight units - simultaneously!
Bluetooth technology is a tremendous success story which began in Scandinavia. As a Norwegian company we take great pride in bringing the next generation of Bluetooth technology into the realm of music equipment.
We worked extensively with Nordic Semiconductor, one of the industry leaders in Bluetooth chip manufacturing. Bluetooth chips from Nordic are found in everything from sport and fitness sensors, to wireless gaming consoles. Just like us, Nordic was founded in the city of Trondheim, Norway
For the design of the MOON and AERO, we worked closely with the multi-award winning Norwegian design agency EGGS Design.
EGGS Design has become renowned for providing product and service designs to a wide range of industries.
The MOON is a quality product Made in Norway. The manufacturing of its electronics is handled by our Norwegian production partner.
Just like with our other products, assembly of the MOON is handled at the Aalberg Audio HQ in Norway. Our production team has already gained valuable experience, having assembled and tested several hundred wireless units.
The "funding fathers" of the company met while studying at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, and were brought together by a strong passion for guitar and music technology.
This same passion is the glue which binds together our diverse team with competences ranging from technology, music, guitar, production, financing and marketing even today.
Our music of choice varies but we share a common vision:
We want to make tools that enhance the creative freedom and the experience itself of making music, no matter what you want to create with it.
Risks and challenges
MOON is already in an advanced development and testing stage.
The device is based off of the wireless products that Aalberg Audio has already developed and distributed to music stores around the world. The current working prototype is being sent out to reviewers and publications.
When producing and developing electronic equipment, one can sometimes run into unexpected obstacles. The channel switching is fully developed and working seamlessly, but the ABY and MIDI switching are yet to be developed, so there is a possibility of some delays to the process. However, the Aalberg Audio team has at this point accumulated years of experience developing, manufacturing and delivering wireless products on a global scale.
We are dedicated to keeping our backers updated on a regular basis, both on highlights and potential challenges in each step of the process.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
