New 77 key weighted controller with polyphonic aftertouch

Post by VanSonik » Thu Oct 25, 2007 7:15 pm

Guys,
You have to see this new 77 key weighted controller I just saw, with polyphonic aftertouch.

If this feels right it is nirvana. Oh by the way it folds up and weighs 25 Ibs.
I can't believe my eyes. I hope they nailed the action on these although, apparently you have an option on that too.
Regards

Don't know, I came across a post on applied acoustics site today.
I did email them in regards to projected shipping. If I hear back I'll post the info.

I called but no one answered me, so I just left a message. It will not ship for a while though... according to the site they are still working on it and the price is not set yet :(

I heard about via Elhardt in a post somewhere else, which automatically makes it a hoax in my book.

However I checked facts and the company seem legit, anyway. The whole thing is vaporware at this point. MAybe you could use it to control a Blofeld.

Hello Huppo,
Well, just received an update from the company Infinite Response.
Apparently, their VAX77 keyboard is reviewed in the November issue of Keyboard Magazine in the new gear section. The are shooting for a Spring '08 release. This is very exciting news in my humble opinion.
Regards,

Yes, more controller options is always exciting.

But Elhardt is still an a*s.

it says they "custom build 6 different key action weights" to your order

if this is available at $500 or less it will be very attractive. let's hope it's both high-quality and attainable :!:

Holy Thread Resurrection, etc etc...

I haven't seen the new VAX MIDI Keyboard Controller kickstarter mentioned here. For those out there interested in such things, take a look. The Infinite Response team have a new, exciting, open-source and cheaper project.

I've signed up for the 8-octave version but there are smaller models available.

What a cool idea! Great to see this keyboard back, and more affordable.
