Intuitive Instruments (formally Dualo) has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund production of the Exquis, a expressive MPE controller that features a hexagonal isomorphic keyboard, MIDI In/Out, CV/Gate out for controlling analog gear, and a variety of configurable controls.
The Exquis features 54 expressive pads, 4 clickable endless knob controllers, a touch slider & 6 configurable buttons. The pads give you continuous per-note control over pressure and pitch. The Exquis application – available for Windows, Mac OS, iOS, Android, Linux an Raspberry Pi OS – is designed to be the perfect companion for the keyboard, as well as a MIDI-compatible DAW.
Pricing and Availability
The Exquis is available to project backers starting at about $155 USD.
Note that crowdfunded projects involve risk, which is documented at the project site.
