THAT is awesome

I wonder how the playability is with the DIY kit? For instance does it feel like a piano, cause they look like soft material.

This is going to be huge. Giants like Yamaha and Kurzweil will definitely use this idea. I hope this guy gets due credit in the long run.

I’m not fully convinced. I don’t want to judge before I’ve played it, but when I play piano, I slide over the keys all the time. I’ll keep my aftertouch for now I think :) And if you really want to slide and do vibratos and stuff you should check out those roland keytars. Those are awesome too.

Seems cool! I agree with my friend from Salt Lake City – the touch feel is very important. If the difference is not significant to the normal plastic key (or ivory) I would buy it.

It could be a game changer in live performances!

Geez, why did I never think of this… I actually sometimes play like that. I mean: I sometimes note how my fingers are trilling on the keys, like I’d want to do a vibrato like on a guitar or violin string. Obviously that doesn’t add anything to the sound, but with this technology it would. If worked out well, this would be sooooooooo brilliant!

Wow. This is amazing. Everone who has ever tried to play expressive instruments on a keyboard will appreciate what is happening here. But, I think it would be better in a small secondary keyboard or a feature that could be programmed to turn on and off in a sequencer in key zones (or maybe key switched?) as sloppy playing could cause unintended changes.

I hope one of the biggies picks this up and gets rid of the overlays. Although the days of hardware synths seem to be marching towards an end, there will always be room for specialties.

I wish them well and hope they can get some big names to use one in a hit song to give this thing some impetus. If it flies, I would definitely be interested in a small dedicated keyboard for lead instruments.
