How does Remidi T8 works?
The T8 is a Bluetooth MIDI-controller. The first time you open T8, you plug it in your laptop/desktop via USB and land on the Remidi website. There, you’ll download the T8 app (for free) and set/calibrate the T8 for the first time. Once that’s done, you’ll be able to use it with your tablet or smartphone just by connecting it through Bluetooth and you can start playing the T8 with a set of Audio Remix Packs. If you want to use it with your music or video software, you’ll just have to go to our website, download the correct patch and import it into your software. At this point your software will see the T8 as a MIDI external device and you can start playing. If you are not familiar with music software, you can use the Audio Mode of our free app and remix tracks on-the-fly.
I don’t have any other music or video software, can I use the T8?
Of course you do! The Remidi interface is expressly designed to let you have fun with the T8, by creating, saving and browsing through your Remix Packs.
I never made music, can I use the T8?
Of course, it’s more intuitive than any other musical instrument. Have you ever tapped a rhythm on your legs or on a table? It's that simple.
How do I program the notes/chords that correspond with each sensor on the T8 (note-sets)?
In MIDI mode, you’ll be able to edit your note-sets to any scale or any pre-determined notes you so choose. This means that you can go around the web, find a MIDI file of a song that you like, set it to the T8, and improvise on it.
Can I use the T8 with my DJ or VJ software?
Yes. You only have to download the patch from our website, import it into your software and select the T8 as the defined MIDI controller on the software you’re using. All of these steps will be easily and efficiently explained for each one of the patches that we’ll provide.
Can I use it with my DAW?
Certainly. We’re also creating patches to integrate the T8 with sequencers. You’ll be able to go to our website, download the patch, upload the patch for your DAW, and your studio nights will be taken to the next level.
What is the warranty?
We provide a one (1) year limited warranty. We guarantee you receive your Remidi T8 free of manufacturing defects. We will focus 100% of our efforts on quality checks and control.
How do I communicate with the T8 during a performance?
The T8 communicates with you through the LEDs on the wristband and through the integrated software/app. In this way you’ll be able to know which note-set you have enabled and the battery level at all times. Moreover, the integrated interface for the laptop can run in parallel with your music software. This way you can perfectly interact with your third party software and you don’t lose sight of your T8.
Can I use it while I play another instrument?
One of the most important features of the T8 is that you can easily bypass sensors with one touch of the wristband. If you play another instrument and you want to move from that instrument to the T8, you can do it in an instant, without overlapping any sound. And, don’t forget that you can also play your instrument (piano, sax, drums) and decide to assign video clips or even other sounds to each of your fingertips and to the movement of your hands: Your performance may evolve in a never-seen-before way!
Does the wristband work alone?
The wristband is designed to interact with software and apps in endless ways and use the encoder to browse note-sets in real-time. Moreover, it can serve as a straightforward companion to your performances because it can keep the tempo through the LEDs on the switches and can be used to interact with whatever software and app you choose, exactly as the entire T8 does.
Does the glove work alone?
No, it doesn’t. The glove has to be connected to the wristband in order to communicate with your device.
Can I use two T8s at the same time?
Of course! Bluetooth is great because it creates very stable connections across devices. The Remidi app has dedicated settings/features for those who wish to play two gloves simultaneously.
What are the available sizes?
The T8 will be available in three sizes: S, M, L. We’re really sorry, but at this time we can’t provide other glove sizes. In order to know if your hand stays in this range you have to measure the width of the back of the hand. To find out your glove size, measure around hand, wrapping a tape measure around your palm and the back of your hand, passing between your thumb and forefinger. You should use your dominant hand, the right if you are right-handed, and the left if you are left-handed. We cannot guarantee that the glove will perfectly fit on hands with a measurement lower than 7 inches or larger than 10 inches.
Which Bluetooth standard is the T8 using?
We’ll provide the T8 with the latest Bluetooth standard: 4.0.
