One of the bits of hardware that keep showing up around me are the Percussa Audio Cubes. I would keep on running into Percussa’s owner, Bert Schiettecatte, at trade shows, would run into users in different places, and even found out that my friends (see Mark Mosher…) are seriously into them. So when Mark opened the door for me to chat with Bert, I rushed in!

Bert’s story is a somewhat common one – a guy with a vision of a product that works hard to make it happen. But when you start talking about all the different things that he had to learn – and master – for this implementation to succeed, it seems like an impossible task. So how does one person make the impossible happen? That’s what we talk about.

I hope you enjoy this one – it is very revealing, but also points to one of the most innovative products out there. Enjoy the podcast, and check out the cubes!

Some of My AudioCube Work

In a related note, I’m still using the hell out of AudioCubes in my controllerism rig and with the 9  Box interactive social musical instrument. As was mentioned in this interview, I’m also expanding my use to create virtual patch cables for U-HE ACE (videos coming soon), and using the wireless AudioCubes to play pieces in Concrete Mixer performances.
