Snyderphonics Manta - polyphonic keyboard example. Madronalabs Soundplane. Hardware and software for electronic music Soundplane A The Soundplane A is a computer music controller with the sensitivity and feel of an acoustic instrument.

It detects a wide range of touches on its walnut playing surface, from a light tickle to a very firm press. Unlike a MIDI keyboard, which typically sends out just one velocity value at the start of a note, the Soundplane communicates three dimensions of information, x, y and pressure, over the entire duration of every touch. As a synthesist, this lets you replace a triggered envelope with an intimate connection and breathe life into each note. True force sensing The Soundplane is a true force sensor. Very high speed The Soundplane is incredibly fast. Custom design The playing surface, the high speed pressure sensor underneath it, and the high bandwidth DSP computer that analyzes the data are the end results of a three-year design process.

TouchKeys Multi-Touch Musical Keyboard by Andrew McPherson

Transforming the Keyboard Every keyboard player knows the problem: playing and releasing notes is easy, but shaping what happens in the middle is hard. The acoustic piano wasn't designed to play vibrato, pitch bends or timbre changes, and if you want these techniques on an electronic keyboard, you’re usually stuck with clumsy wheels and pedals or limited aftertouch. The TouchKeys instead put these techniques literally at your fingertips, giving you continuous expressive control with a shake of the wrist or a slide of the finger. A. Exploring The Seaboard.
