A music instrument everybody van play. It takes years of hard work to master an traditonal instrument. Neo will make making music simple. Music is a sensory experience, while playing a traditional instrument sound is directly influenced by touch. This is often lost in digital instruments. Neo is a digital instrument, but your touch will still influence the sound. For Neo you don't need rhythm, perfect pitch or years of practice, Just play.
