Melodics is modern learning for modern instruments

Melodics is modern learning for modern instruments, supporting MIDI Keyboards, Pad Controllers, and electronic drum kits. It's structured learning for solid progress. Melodics takes the "but where do I start?" out of learning music. Start with a genre you love, or a technique you want to master. Whatever your skill level, there's something there. Then take a course – Melodics courses take you on a journey, teaching you everything you want to know about a genre or concept.

Founder and CEO Sam Gribben

Melodics was founded by Sam Gribben,  the former CEO of Serato and one of the people responsible for the digital DJ revolution and controllerism.  So it's not surprising that Melodics started with finger drumming on pad controllers. 

Melodics hardware partners

 It's also not surprising that Sam took a page out of the Serato playbook and worked with well established hardware companies to create value add bundles with Melodics™. Here is a list of some of the companies that Melodics™ works with.

Melodics for Pad Controllers

Melodics™ started with training for Pad Controllers like Ableton Push and Native Instruments Maschine. They have guides on techniques and correct posture. Long story short, they treat these new controllers as legitimate musical instruments that you need to practice and learn to play exactly the same way you would with a traditional instrument like a cello or a clarinet.


Melodics for Electronic Drums

Melodics™ is a perfect practice partner for someone with electronic drums. 


Melodics™ for Keyboards

Melodics™ has a unique interface for keyboards that shows you what notes are coming next. 


Melodics and MIDI

Melodics™ uses MIDI for all of it's core functionality.  SysEx is used to identify what device is connected and automatically configure the hardware controls.  The lessons are MIDI based so Melodics™ can look at your performance and compare it to the notes in the MIDI file.   So Melodics™ can determine if you played the right note and whether you played early or late and provide an ongoing report on your musical progress.  

MIDI underpins everything we do, from the lesson creation process, to how we play back the lessons and display feedback, to how we interact with the instruments. Under the hood, Melodics is a midi sampler. We take the input from what the student is playing, compare that to the midi in the lesson we created, and show the student how they are doing compared to a perfect performance.
