HyVibe – The World’s First Smart Acoustic Guitar

Your daily selection of the latest crowdfunding projects!

According to indiegogo.com

The HyVibe Guitar is the World’s First Smart Acoustic Guitar. It uses a vibration control system, high-speed processor, and Bluetooth module to become its own amplifier, connected speaker, recorder, looper, and multi-effect board.

Having all these tools built into a high-quality acoustic guitar will change the way you play. It will make you a better player and inspire you to create more music.

We have been working on this project for over 7 years. It is finally ready for you to try!

What’s Under the Hood?

Our patent-pending technology is based on vibration control. Our system combines sensors, multiple actuators, embedded algorithms, and a PCB designed to be the fastest sound card in the world.

Our low latency system allows us to control feedback and transform the natural vibrations of the guitar from the top plate, by the bridge where the instrument performs best.

This sets us apart from anything else on the market today.

The HyVibe ‘Inside’ Story

Our Story


Our story begins in 2010. Adrien was in his apartment in Camden Town, London. He put an actuator connected to his smart phone on top of his acoustic guitar. He realized a huge potential for exciting acoustic guitars, but also felt disappointed by the sound quality that he heard.

This inspired him to create a research project at Ircam. This evolved into the Ircam SmartInstrument Project. During this project Adrien led a growing team of 10 researchers, engineers, musicians and technicians dedicated to knowledge an music creation with vibration control technology.  It was here that Adrien met Francois Beaulier who is also a Co-Founder of HyVibe

After 7 years of research and some incredible breakthroughs, Adrien wanted to develop musical instruments that he could share with the entire world. Together with Matthew Volsky who Adrien met through a childhood friend, the three started in HyVibe in early 2017 and have been working on the HyVibe Guitar ever since.
