    Default KMI QuNeo Pad Controller

    Hi,
    I just wanted to share a controller we're developing:

    http://kck.st/taqBsn

    16 pads with x/y/z control, 9 sliders with continuous pressure and multi-touch control. 2 rotaries with pressure and distance from the center, a bunch of pressure sensitive buttons.

    We're excited and hope you will be too!

    i'd be very interested in picking one of those up for drum programming - esp with all the data that can be send out via it's drum pads and the firmware being open source. hopefully the pads have good response, similar to akai mpc/lpd etc

    so every drum pad is basically a mini x/y pad? this would be fantastic for controlling effects in something like traktor.

    overall probably more aimed at apps like ableton than transport and levels control of traktor i presume with that layout. the 4x4 pads area is great, not sure about the rest. 2 sets of 4 faders seems an odd combination esp the horizontal ones, tho they could be used for track scrubbing twitch style. i'd buy a couple of them if the rest of the controller was turned into more pads tho

    price aiming somewhere around 150 to 200usd?

    edit: i presume each of the drum pads would send a noteon and noteoff on press and release, along with 2 cc's for x/y coords as u move, aftertouch messages too and ideally 2 more cc's for the relative x/y movements? would be awesome... midi feedback to light up the pads properly from software would be quite complex i presume tho - as you'd need to send x/y pos along with what color to light up. would also need a way of just lighting up a whole pad in a specific color to make feedback usable by the likes of traktor/ableton without some intermediary software to handle that.

    That's a freaking awesome project, I'm really interested too. Hope it will come to life.

    There’s also an almost hermetic community that exists in many areas of dance music, where serious hobbyists feed off each other’s expertise but barely connect to the industry – despite many of those involved actually working in it.

    yep - my guess wasn't far wrong - they're saying it'll be fixed at 200$. i'm fairly sure i'd want to pick one up at that price. there again it's half the price of a twitch so maybe i'd save up for that - not sure. very cool controller anyway. i'd be pursuaded if the pads are any good.

    Default QuNeo; crazy new controller

    well this looks pretty awesome. Kinda combines a touchscreen with more tactile controls.
    Might be a project worth supporting!
