4-voice polyphonic, fully analogue, no voltage is being digitized at all!
the mcu just routs analogue pressures and cv through analogue switches.
very powerfull sequencing capabilities (realtime recording among them)

we're working hard to make it ready soon :)

Due to analog conception i guess no but: location ?

none, just pressure. this module is more a musical microtonal performance keyboard than a controller. thus the polyphony and wide sequencing capabilities, they interact with keyboard functions to make sophisticated performance tool, something like that :)

Btw, i did make some prototyping job on keybord with y-axis control, also polyphonic and must confess, it could hardly ever be named as a musical controller, especially in term of polyphony, probably because of construction of human palm, fingers' proximity and so on... That's why we stopped on this design

Looks exciting! Which platform is this for (Buchla, Serge, other?)

I decided to start from buchla, and then, who knows :)
but not serge definitely...

wau this looks nice. Sequencing sounds very interesting

Very interesting! Could you concatenate more than one to form a longer keyboard/augment polyphony?

Due to analogue design it is problematic to form such a long vehicle :)
But you can easily stack two and tune them in proper way, though the total polyphony would be 2/4/8 instead of 1/2/4

And one gets two extremely powerful arbitrary generators ;)

Would be very interested to know more details when they're available. It seems as though there are a few "four voice" controllers in the works in different formats, but none appear to actually be available (the WMD 48 button keyboard, the Sputnik touch-plate -- both in Euro). It'd be cool if at least one becomes an actual product that we can buy...and Buchla format would be preferred in my book, so, please do keep at it! :hyper:

Be sure we will :) final prototype is on the way

ohlala, dare one hope for user programmable tunings with recall?

Together with sequencing this looks like a very nice alternative controller. :yay:

I have no idea how to accomplish any recall on an analogue controller :) and it is analogue, as was declared
