    really not on board with the whole sphere thing. From the vid it looks like you need to hit both sides so the thing doesn't topple over... Would have been much wiser to lay the pads flat then you would also have access to all the pads without doing the old reach around LMAO

    Great looking peice of art, terrible ergonomics for an instrument or controller... But that's just one arseholes opinion

    It is really easy to play.. Doesnt fall over if you press just one side.. You can press the rubberish surface pretty deep and it has aftertouch

    Looks like more of a novelty to me. Cool, but a novelty none the less. With the emergence of controllerism, and the simplicity of building midi controllers, I'm sure we will see lots of things come out in the next few years that will spend more time on the shelf than in the booth.

    I disagree, looks like a very good piece of kit.

    The haptic feedback seems great with the design of the soft pads, as well as with lighting feedback.

    Software looks top notch as well, i'm interested in this, more the production applications, but could be amazing for live PA. OSC as well.

    The guy explained it quite nice. Said it'd be at 500 which i find quite reasonable

    I feel like I'm repeating myself, but still:
