The K-Board Pro 4 is a Class-Compliant USB-powered MIDI contorller that captures velocity, continuous pressure, and both horizontal and vertical position. This gives you continuous expressive control over individual notes, not offered by traditional keyboards.
Here’s a video demo from the show floor, via Kraft Music:
Under each key of K-Board Pro 4 is the KMI’s Smart Sensor Fabric. This is the same technology used in all of their MIDI control surfaces.
The K-Board Pro 4 also has no moving parts, and KMI says that it will have their ‘trademark durability.’ Previously, KMI has demoed the durability of their devices by pouring beer on them and throwing them out the window.
The K-Board Pro 4 will be priced at US $495 and is expected to be available sometime in Q4 2016. See the KMI site for more info.
