What would you want in your dream MIDI keyboard controller?
Here’s a demonstration of one possibility – Claude Woodward’s unique Claude Controller. The Claude Controller is a sophisticated MIDI controller that lets you use 36 wheels, 2 joysticks and a pedalboard to instantly modify various aspects of a synth sound, as you play.
While Woodward’s MIDI controller is still under development, his demonstration showcases the benefits of controller designs that put a variety of synthesis parameters under realtime control.
Woodward says that he hopes to be producing controllers, based on his design, in the near future.
What do you think? Are today’s MIDI keyboard controllers too limiting? And what would you like to see in a keyboard controller?
