The 24-key Evo MIDI Controller
The Evo is a pure keyboard controller that is connected to a computer via an Ethernet interface, and that communicates via MIDI, OSC or a proprietary protocol. The Evo’s unique keys are equipped with a sensor that allows it to read the finger position on the key. As a result, every key offers, in addition to pitch and velocity, an additional level of polyphonic data input that can be used to play more expressively.
Here’s a video demo of the Evo and its technology:
With the announcement, the Evo is now available in two sizes:
- 499 EUR (24 keys)
- 999 EUR (48 keys)
