The world’s first ball that makes music

An interactive and playful musical instrument, the ball makes beats when you bounce it and can be used as a MIDI controller.

The ODD ball project started as a Kickstarter campaign and soon took on a life of its own, eclipsing its original £30,000 goal to raise £184,517.

The ODD ball is a musical instrument in the form of a silicone ball. The ball is designed to be hooked up to an app to create sounds by bouncing and catching the ball. The harder you bounce the ball, the higher the note or, the louder the sound.

The app is used to trigger sounds, loop, and layer to create track ideas. You can then connect the app to your DAW and use the ball as a MIDI controller, triggering samples and manipulating the parameters.

The ODD ball app has an incredible array of instruments from various genres, including Disco, Hip Hop, Grime, Rock, and an exclusive ODD sound library.

In addition to this, there is FX within the app, allowing you to tweak your loops, giving you the ability to make your loops sound unique. 

If you want to take your sounds to the next level, you can also connect multiple balls via the app. This will take your creative potential above and beyond, introducing tricks to create original-sounding music. Watch the video here to see it in action.

The ODD ball is available to buy for £89.
