Skoogmusic Skwitch is a brand new musical instrument that clips straight on to your iPhone, so within minutes you have a piece of accessible tech that you can use to create music, learn coding, and more.
Skwitch lets you make music from the palm of your hand—from anywhere. It works as an easy-to-use musical instrument or advanced MPE/MIDI device, and you don’t need any training. It’s easy to compose your own riffs, melodies, and chord progressions. Just press the Skwitch in different places, and you can step forward and backward through your favorite melodies, expressively shaping the sound as you squeeze. Mix and match with chords and arpeggios and you're ready to start improvising or jamming along with your favorite tunes. Then, when you’re ready to take it to the next level, connect wirelessly to GarageBand, Logic, or any other MPE or Audiobus-ready apps on your connected iPhone or Mac.
With Skwitch you can easily code and make music without any musical knowledge or abilities. Just slot Skwitch into your iPhone and you’re up and running. Within minutes you’ll be programming your own musical instruments that respond to your touches on Skwitch. You can even learn to control droids and drones—all at the touch of a button.
Using the Skwitch Access app, you can transform your iPhone into a portable, wireless switch controller for iOS and macOS. Easy to set up and customize, Skwitch offers multiple modes of operation, tactile feedback, and compatibility to all switch accessible apps, games, or software running iOS 11 or later.
Compact and with clean lines, Skwitch needs no batteries or charging so it’s always ready for action. Wireless connectivity means it’s easy to hook up to other devices. And its highly tactile sensor responds to the slightest touch, so you’re always in control of what you’re creating.
The unique design features of Skwitch mean anyone can use it—including people with disabilities. It’s all about how your creativity can connect with technology. And when you download "Switch Access" it will turn your iPhone into an accessibility switch, which you can use with Switch Control.

Skwitch is the brand new musical instrument from Skoogmusic. It clips straight on to your iPhone, so within minutes you have a piece of accessible tech that you can use to create music, learn coding + more - it’s a bit like magic, but better.
This iPhone app is intended for use with Skwitch and iPhone only and will not provide any functionality if installed directly on an iPad. If you want to use Skwitch with an iPad, you can easily connect from this App (running on your iPhone, with Skwitch attached and ready) to compatible apps running on any iPad that supports Bluetooth MIDI (iPad 3 onwards).
To start making music on your iPad or Mac with Skwitch simply run Skwitch Music on your iPhone, follow the instructions for attaching the Skwitch, then start a MIDI session. Once that's up and running you just need to go to the MIDI settings in the app and start advertising Bluetooth MIDI. On an iPad, run any Bluetooth MIDI enabled app, then connect to Skwitch (for example, in GarageBand go to Settings/Advanced/Bluetooth MIDI Devices). On a Mac, you can use Skwitch Music with GarageBand or Logic by connecting it as a Bluetooth MIDI input device in the Audio Midi Setup app located in Applications/Utilities.
Skwitch Music also allows you to connect from your iPhone (again, with Skwitch attached and ready) to Swift Playgrounds on your iPad using Bluetooth MIDI. You can then use our Skwitch-ready Playgrounds and Templates to learn about musical scales while coding your own Skwitch controllable musical instruments. You can even write code in Swift Playgrounds to use Skwitch to fly drones or make robots dance. …
