Simon Kemper, CEO of the German company Endeavour, let us know that the price of their Evo multitouch keyboard has been reduced to $199.
The Evo is a keyboard controller that connects to a computer via an Ethernet interface, and that communicates via MIDI, OSC or our own in-house protocol with synthesizers, sequencers.
Each key on the Evo is equipped with a sensor that allows it to read finger position on a certain area of the key surface. Thus, every key offers, in addition to pitch and velocity, an additional level of polyphonic data input that can be used for continuous control of independent notes. So every key can be used as a fader, controller, a pitch-wheel, a mod-wheel or a button.
Here’s a demo of the Evo prototype in action: Continue reading
