    1. I got the MK1 and its really fun. If you haven’t seen it it has this bright LED (which I hope we can turn off in MK2), and in the instructions they warn about not using the ribbon as a lightsaber, which I’m pretty sure every owners of MK1 did while in the dark).

      Those new preset buttons are a godsend, and I hope they won’t be as hard to get as the MK1 was.

      1. Do you know of any way to edit the damn thing without having to buy the Max MSP runtime? The demo version my Ribbon came with has long since expired and then the unit decided to randomly reset, so I’m back to the default triangle wave or whatever.

        I really dislike how they didn’t make their own software for it, and don’t seem to offer any options on their website.

  1. My dream midi controller is something like this crossed with an eigenharp pico. Like a 3 octave pressure sensing ribbon, breath pipe, and maybe some contact mics for stimulating physical modelling resonators. This looks like the next best thing.
