Percussa offers FREE shipping worldwide and according to the shop page If you don't like AudioCubes they’ll refund your money including all shipping costs.

Full disclosure – I’m not affiliated with Percussa, and I don’t benefit financially if you buy AudioCubes. I’m just a big fan.

If you are not familiar with AudioCubes, I did a detailed review here.

I’m using 4 cubes currently and I wanted to mention that if you can’t swing 4 cubes financial, there are use cases for starting with a single cube which I’ll outline below. Think of it as a way to get an spatial controller that you can throw into your backpack. A controller with visual feedback for use in sound design or performance.

modulatethis_single_audiocubeIf you have one cube, you’d want to use the free MIDIBridge app to configure a cube “Sensor” mode and could use it in the following ways:

1) Configure each cube face to send a different MIDI Continuous Controller to your DAW thereby allowing you* to modulate 4 parameters at the same time. The video below illustrates this idea. I’m mostly using one cube in the video. The second cube just adds 4 more parameters.

2) Configure each cube to send a different MIDI note. I’m using 3 cubes here but the concept would work with one cube. Of course, you could also map the note to do other things in programs like Ableton Live to launch next scene and such.

3) Map a cube face to send both a MIDI note and continuous controller information. Here is a rough video of this concept in action to modulate parameters of Camel Audio Alchemy running in Ableton Live.
