The Intuitive Instruments (formally Dualo) Kickstarter campaign to fund production of the Exquis expressive MPE controller has blown past its funding goal, doubling its original target, with 12 days to go.
The Exquis is a hexagonal isomorphic keyboard controller, with 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.
