A couple years ago, bay area start-up Irijule hit the ground running with its first endeavour, the TheoryBoard, a MIDI controller which aimed to put the power of music theory right at your fingertips. Well, after huge success with garnering the much needed support and financial backing, Irijule now returns this summer with an updated version of the TheoryBoard, packing up to 1.9 billion chord variations and much, more more!
Dubbing this new model the "Thy333", it has already way oversurpassed the mark needed to implement full production and marketing, and so we can expect that this will indeed be hitting the stores soon enough!
