About the Haken Continuum
Manufactured by Haken Audio, the Continuum Fingerboard is a musical instrument that allows unprecedented real-time performance control. With a greater pitch range than a traditional 88-note MIDI keyboard, the Continuum offers continuous multidimensional performance control for every finger on the playing surface.
Inside the instrument is a custom-designed, user-programmable, digital modular synthesizer, specifically designed to take advantage of the Continuum’s expressive musical capabilities.
