A MIDI Joystick Is Definitely The Best Way To Play Music

In the music video for his aptly-named track Arcade, M4SONIC is seen playing a custom-made arcade-style joystick that’s actually a MIDI instrument. Instead of using a piano keyboard, or a rhythm pad filled with countless buttons to trigger MIDI samples, this creation let M4SONIC channel his childhood Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat skills into his music.

The joystick itself was built by the folks at Analogue Interactive, who you might remember as the company behind the upcoming Analogue Nt solid aluminium NES clone. Old-school gaming fans will soon be able to get their hands on the Analogue Nt, but unfortunately the joystick appearing in M4SONIC’s video is a one-off. [Analogue Interactive]
