This is fun to sit on the couch and noodle around it, and equally fun for my kids (7 and 10) to play with too.
The audio out jack is nice for running into other gear. I played a tune and recorded it, pitched it down, added delay and warble, then ran it into a sampler to add a beat and a bass line to it. I plan to layer multiple tongue drum samples to really get this going.
The only thing lacking is a volume knob. Sometimes the speaker is a little loud and the audio jack is too loud to use headphones on. Minor complaint though.
Now I'm waiting for the cajon version!
My kids love playing with their Krankie, when I get done playing with it!! lol
I ordered the rainbow recorder box for my 5yr old as a Christmas gift. My.. helpful.. mailman threw the box just beyond my drive-in gate. I came home in the dark and drove over it, or at least the side of it. I was horrified, but little rainbow was fine. I have been playing with it ever since with no problems, my kid gets to play it with it sometimes too! That's legit craftsmanship.
Gift for my son who produces electronic music. He loves it!
Idk why on earth everyone loved this so much - it is so simple - but it created the biggest excitement (more than hoverboards, etc etc). Only wish we had purchased two because the two boys (6&8) fought over this one. 😂😂😂😂 very delightful gift, a bit quirky, will be buying more.
These instruments juet keep getting better and better. Lots of fun for both me and my 13-year old.
This is my 2nd purchase for a child. Wonderful creative and fun recorder. I know the little girl getting this for Christmas with love it! Thank you for the great customer support.
I just got a Jupiter Moon, that I will give to My Person. It worked perfectly right away! The fact, that something so tiny made it across the Atlantic accompanied by a handwritten note almost made me cry. Thank you!!!
The coolest little thing to record, loop, and sound like a chipmunk or slooooow it down. That’s all you need for some fun little recordings. It has the look and feel of an object that should be displayed. The simple acoustics have an earthy wooden feel that projects well without being too loud, and there’s a 1/8” output Jack. Seems to be made to last and is battery powered! Shipped fast from a cool dude.
We have several BNN instruments and we pre-ordered the drum back when it was out of stock. When it arrived, we were all so stoked! Laid down a simple track and then started twisting those knobs. Ethereal. Spacey. Infinite possibilities. I've run it through an amp using an 1/8" to 1/4" adapter and hope to try different pedals (if that will work) to take the train all the way to freaktown. I imagine some of these tunes we're building can be layered as the root tracks for other cool more traditional instruments (like guitar/cello) or maybe we'll add our theremin and other synths to the mix. It really can go just about anywhere your little heart can imagine. Plus, you're supporting a small business! My kids love it. My partner digs it. Looking forward to hours of fun ahead.
I purchased a Looper Sound Recording Device | Spiro for my 3 year-old granddaughter. Both of her parents are professional musicians and she loves to play with anything that makes noise - the buttons are a bonus. I really appreciate the design and kid-friendly buttons. Thanks for making her smile every time she engages with her Looper.
This thing is great. Easy to use and fun for all ages to play with. Slows down and speeds up recorded audio. The two little containers for exciters don't add much, but they do make it obvious to even the littlest tyke that this is a toy that makes noise. Seems to be safe for all ages, clearly safe for ages 3+. A fine "executive diversion" for an adult or teenage too. Construction is sturdy and high enough quality to make it a good value for around a hundred bucks. We've played a bit rough with ours, including dropping it more than a few times, and it still works good as new. I hope to get a chance to play with other stuff from BrandNewNoise. Really impressed!
So much fun! Everyone in the family has been playing with it non-stop. Very well made.
Finally bought a Krankie after owning a Space Oddity for a couple of years. This is an excellent device, constant inspiration. I would absolutely love to see a “deluxe” or custom version that had a volume knob (it’s quite loud) and in-built delay. Keep up the excellent work Richard
Whole family love it. Richard’s kind notes in each delivery make the special instruments even more welcome in our home. Wonderful.
