Radikal Technologies Accelerator At The NAMM Show

This video, via HarmonyCentral, catches developer Jörg Schaaf at the The NAMM Show, discussing the new Radikal Technologies Accelerator synthesizer.

We said that  Schaaf “introduced an entirely new form of wankery to the world of keyboard performance”, when he introduced the Radikal Accelerator and its 3D motion sensor. Fortunately, the Accelerator also offers a Radikal synth engine and performance controls….

  1. I don't know about you but I am ALWAYS picking up my Virus TI to help with sound expression.

    Who ever came up with that idea should go work at a toy company.
