Unlock your creative expression with Genki Wave

You might have seen videos of musicians wearing this ring and waving their hands around. No, it’s not witchcraft or a new form of sorcery. Meet the Genki Wave ring – your finger armour for music creativity.

At Soundbrenner, we’re no strangers to the world of innovative music wearables. So when we came across the Wave ring, we were instantly intrigued. Designed to help you really connect with your music, the team at Genki Instruments designed this device to give you the freedom of creative expression with simple hand gestures.

From performing live on stage to productions in the studio, Wave adds a unique humanistic touch to your music.

A new dimension to musical creativity

So what is it really? Genki Wave is a midi controller ring that allows you to control sound, shape effect, and send commands to a DAW.

A DJ with Genki Wave

While creating music with synthesizers opens up endless possibilities of sounds, the creative process can feel “synthetic” at times. Wave solves this problem by closing the gap between your creativity and the equipment you use to express it. Just like a conductor would wave his arms when guiding his orchestra, controlling your music with hand gestures feel natural and direct.

If you’re a music producer looking to add a more human element to your sounds, you’re at the right place.

Other ways you can use Genki Wave:

  • Live music performers: got a flair for the dramatics? Regardless of the instrument you play, Wave will spice up your live sets with greater artistic expression. Use Wave to add a unique visual component to your performances.
  • Music producers and composers: Liven up synth expression and control different key commands within your DAW in an intuitive way. Modify sounds and unleash your creativity with this unique tool.
  • Singers: control vocal effects like delay and reverb in real-time.
  • Studio use: save time and control your computer from afar. Set Wave’s button to switch to a new a playlist, or start recording.

The usefulness to musicians are clear: Wave lets you play your instrument or control your software with gestures that bring up various effects or sounds on the fly.


  1. Gesture controls: six gesture controls which you can use individually or mixed together, including tilt, pan, roll, vibrato, tap, and click.
  2. Creative control: Customize your ring’s functions and parameters to meet your needs. Adjust each gesture, program every button, and configure your setup however you please.
  3. Highly compatible: use Wave with Ableton Live, Logic Pro X, Pro Tools, Reaper, Garage Band, Studio One, and many more.
  4. Simple design: a sleek and futuristic design, lightweight and comfortable to wear. It also comes with a compact case for easy storage.
  5. Go cord-free: pair Wave with the WIDI Master to control all sorts of MIDI devices without a computer

Creative control at your fingertips

To get started, simply wear the Wave ring on your index finger and adjust the strap to your size. You’ll find three control buttons and a LED display on the device. Set up the software to your liking, and start creating.

Keep it mind it will take some practice to really master expression, but once you get the hang of it, it’s a lot of fun!
