Musikmesse 2012: The Endeavour Evo Keyboard, described as the ‘worlds first keyboard with touch sensitive keys’, now has a synthesizer, Evosizer.
The Evo keyboard is unique in that it has capacitive touch sensors for each key. This means it can read your fingers’ movement on top of a key’s surface. So, in addition to pitch and velocity, the Evo adds a third layer of polyphonic data input.
The Evosizer is designed specifically to work with the unique expressive capabilities of the keyboard and can translate the movement of your fingers, toward or away from the keyboard, into changes in the synthesized sound.
Here is an overview of Evosizer:
This power doesn’t come cheap, though. The Evo Series One retails for 2700 Euro. This may get more affordable soon, though. CDM’s Peter Kirn reports that Endeavor is working on a smaller and more affordable version, that is expected to be introduced by the end of the year.
