Exciting, but I am curious about y tracking on such a narrow strip. Looking forward to details!

Interested - wonder if it will allow midi in so I can control the sounds with another MPE controller?

Edit - midi over usb according to the text above

Yes, I would expect the Y-axis and pressure to fall very close together on such a small surface.

Though I find the reference to the Trautonium very interesting and tend to see this as a more sensitive ribbon controller where pressure and y-axis variance would allow for a more natural playing experience when you program Y to very slight variances in tone. Whereas on a classic continuum you have more control for sound changes on Y-axis.

Also it depends on the foam used for the surface. It has changed over time and may allow for a very soft touch and playing experience on slow and tender finger movements.

Im looking forward to learn more about this on superbooth!

Why is Haken doing a Kickstarter for this? You would think they were established enough, and have a long enough track record, to create this and drum up interest/presales/etc on their own.

Seems to be way more companies are going. I'm tired of paying for things ahead of time. It's probably better for their cash flow.

I’d be very surprised if “they” amounted to more than 2 or 3 people. I could be wrong, but in relatively early dats, it was pretty much Lippold and maybe an intern, grad student, or part-timer.
He’s a great guy, and deserves support. But I share the hesitancy about Kickstarters.
OTOH, he/they are established, so are probably much less likely to be shilling vapor-gear.

Sure, but there's a cost of doing business on Kickstarter. They actually take a sizeable slice of the pie, and Haken is established enough that they really don't need what Kickstarter brings to the table. The validity of having a Kickstarter is probably a much bigger discussion than belongs here, but I don't know why someone who already has an established customer and fan base would need it when they can drum up just as much interest, and probably make more money, posting the item for sale on the Haken Audio site instead.

Eh, to each their own, I guess. smile I'm sure he has his reasons.

For anyone with any substantial curiosity about the Continuum, the ContinuuMini looks to me like a no-brainer way to try it out with less risk. Or maybe it’s actually more risk, because if you like it, you’ll wind up ponying up thousands more for a full size model! help

makes me want the original way more , the power i thinks in the control level of the original but this is an amazing price for a pre order and to be able to tap the matrix sounds which are insane.

anyone selling a secondhand light touch ?smile
