Modular-Muse is a hardware and software toolkit for music. It is an exploration of design tools between off-the-shelf interfaces and digital-audio workstation (DAW) environments and common maker tools. It features input modules for interface design and output modules for physical sound actuation and controlling lights, as well as a software library to streamline sound design and hardware interaction. By offering an accessible and transparent platform that enables exploration in a creative context, Modular-Muse is a powerful tool for engaging users in higher levels of design thinking and offers a new context in which to explore electronics and programming.
