Neova is a MIDI ring controller that lets musicians control any musical effect with natural hand gestures. The ring comes with a hub that connects via USB to the computer or via MIDI with instruments that supports it.

Neova synchronizes to any DAW and compatible with any software synthesizers and MIDI controllers.

“As a musician, I believe that emotion is the purpose of each melody. In musical performance, subtlety is a key. Every intention, every micro-gesture should be captured to reflect the intensity of your feeling as truthfully as possible. We imagined Neova with the simple idea of creating the shortest path between your musical intention and music creation” – says Enhancia’s co-founder and CEO Damien Le Boulaire.

Neova is designed with 9 motion sensors which have highly accurate gesture recognition algorithms. They enable to control musical effects naturally and only when intended to. The gesture library consists of following intuitive movements:

  • Vibrato, Bend and Tilt specifically designed to enhance the play on the instrument.
  • Wave and Roll let musicians control the music in the air.

To give musicians instant responsivity, ENHANCIA created its own wireless proprietary protocol which is optimized for ultra low latency. The technology is 8 times more reactive than Bluetooth with unparalleled 2ms of latency. The overall system is a patented technology.

ENHANCIA aims to raise $50,000 USD to finish the product development and manufacturing. The Neova Kickstarter campaign will run until May 17th, 2018.
