At the 2020 NAMM Show, Haken Audio is introducing two new models of the Continuum Fingerboard, the s70L6x (slim 70) and the s46L6x (slim 46).
The new Continuums are thinner than the original Continuums (1.2 inches), adding to their portability. The new Continuums also include expanded audio I/O and an integrated LED display and controls.
- With a 70 semitone surface pitch range, the s70L6x Continuum is designed to give you a great range of playing possibilities with extensive octave freedom.
- At nearly 4 octaves long, the s46L6x Continuum is designed to be a versatile instrument, with a great range of playing possibilities.
Both are very gesturally sensitive instruments giving you extremely responsive control over sounds in multiple dimensions, letting you control sounds via individual finger movements in three dimensions.
See the Haken site for more information on the Slim Continuums.
Firmware Version 9
Haken Audio has also introduced firmware version 9 is for all Continuums with DSP engines (both classic action and light action) and for all ContinuuMinis.
There are over 100 new Presets for the Continuum and ContinuuMini since the last release for the Continuum, version 8.50. This brings the total number of Presets available to over 470. Of note in these new Presets are the greatly expanded number in the Ultility category. These Utility Presets are often a great starting point for creating new custom Presets.
Haken says that the new version of firmware is an example of the company’s continued support and improvements to the Continuum and the ContinuuMini, and that it also lays the groundwork for inclusion of the upcoming Expressive E Osmose.
