Looks interesting. I wonder if they'll manage to do a 100% responsive touchplate, unlike some other recent offerings :mrgreen:

I like the size with standard midi ports. Not sure what all else it does tho., an what do you mean by 100% responsive touchplate?

It seems to include a sequencer and arpeggiator but FR is just showing pics right now.

I meant 100% reliable triggering basically...

Looks cool! I love the touch-plate keys on the Music Easel, but could never justify the $4000 USD pricetag. Maybe I'll get one of these, close my eyes, and pretend I'm Alessandro Cortini. :o

Ah, that would be a put off. I'm also not so sure how tactile feeling touchplates are, if it had say a noticeable depression or gap or ridges around the individual key plates then wouldn't be too bad but that thing looks like a pretty smooth transition.
