Joyst is a new musical instrument that is easy to learn and fun to play. The Joyst has a clever note layout which reduces the memorisation required to play chords and scales. When compared to a piano the Joyst offers 90% less memorisation. This layout allows the user to get straight to making music without getting bogged down in complex music theory. Notes are played by manipulating analogue joysticks: this allows subtle pitch bending and note articulation effects, which is not possible with the simplistic
binary buttons used to trigger notes in most electronic instruments. With its easy-to-learn note layout, and its expressive joysticks, the Joyst puts unlimited expressive potential in the hands of all users. The Joyst allows you to become the creative genius you never knew you could be.
