Product information "Haken Audio Continuum (full size)"

The Continuum Fingerboard is a MIDI performance instrument with an innovative, three-dimensional control surface. Thanks to its polyphonic, modular DSP engine, the Fingerboard can not only be used for playing external hardware and software synthesizers, but as a stand-alone device as well. Sounds produced by the internal sound generator are very atmospheric. The multi-gesture control surface enables musicians to create extremely expressive performances. In detail, movements on the X, Y and Z axes are evaluated. – Of up to 16 fingers! The X-axis is used to generate pitch data. With slight movements to the left and right, users can create vibrato effects. Vigorous wiping gestures over a large area of the playing surface result in seamless, high-resolution glissandi. The Y-axis can be used to generate additional MIDI data. – More or less a modulation wheel per finger. The Z-axis is somewhat of a velocity and polyphonic aftertouch control. Via expanders, users can add more DSP power and CV connectors to their instrument. (Sold separately) The Continuum Fingerboard offered here is the full-size version with a pitch range of nearly eight octaves.

  • Intelligent quantizing with preset and user definable scales.
  • Scalable pitch processing allows musicians to use non-linear pitch mappings.
  • A mono mode makes it possible to retrigger sounds or create glide effects with multiple fingers.
