Fun things to try

Skoog 2.0 is compatible with iOS devices that support Bluetooth LE. You can access a full list of compatible devices in the FAQ section. Skoog 2.0 can also connect to Mac OS X. To use Skoog with an IOS device (iPad, iPhone or iPod touch) you will need to download the app from the App Store. The app and software are free to download. You can also access them via the downloads section.


There are 5 sides on your Skoog- red, blue, yellow, green and orange. Each side plays a different note. As well as pressing within the coloured circles, you can also squeeze Skoog anywhere on its sides, edges and corners.

Skoog works great when played with your hands but it can be played with any part of your body.


You can use your Skoog on a flat surface or on a compatible mount (here is some further info on compatible mounting options).  Either way, you will need to calibrate your Skoog to get the best out of it.

  1. Place your Skoog on a flat surface like a table or your lap, or fix it in the required playing position with your mount kit.  It’s important not to move your Skoog during the next stage of the set-up process.
  2. Now that you have got your Skoog in the preferred position, it needs to be calibrated to make sure it plays correctly.  It’s important that you do not touch or move your Skoog during calibration. When you are ready tap the ‘Calibrate’ button on the iPad screen. It will take around 5 seconds to calibrate
