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)

  1. This is cool, imagine if you map each knob of a synth to each key and you just jcahnge parameters with the keys! No need for knobs and faders
