via this auction

"If you're looking at this listing, you're probably well aware of what this is and is capable of. If not, here's an excerpt from Wikipedia:

"The Tenori-on is an electronic musical instrument designed and created by the Japanese artist Toshio Iwai and Yu Nishibori of the Music and Human Interface Group at the Yamaha Center for Advanced Sound Technology. It consists of a hand-held screen in which a sixteen-by-sixteen grid of LED switches are held within a magnesium plastic frame. Any of these switches may be activated in a number of different ways to create sounds. Two built-in speakers are located on the top of the frame, as well as a dial and buttons that control the type of sound and beats per minute produced."

It's basically is one of the most fun & innovative electronic music production hardware/instruments. You can use its inbuilt sounds or import your own samples. You can connect MIDI and use the sequencer as master/slave or a controller etc etc. It can be as easy or as deep as you want it.


Unit is cosmetically in great condition. All buttons, jog wheel and switches work perfectly and feel great. Lights and screen perfect in operation. Ports and jacks all in excellent condition and connect without issue. Sound is clear and strong from output."
