Here Comes The KMI QuNexus!
May 10, 2013
And just when I thought I was all done getting my hands on cool new gear to show around at the AES Nashville Recording Workshop & Expo (and review for future issues), a package arrived today with the new QuNexus keyboard from Keith McMillen Instruments:
This is a very slickly designed little USB keyboard with lots of extras not found on the competition. Its keys and buttons are actually pressure-sensitive silicone pads that are very comfortable to the touch, and it transmits not only velocity but polyphonic pressure data (is there a sudden trend back that way? I love it!). It's very configurable, using a helper utility program I haven't tried yet, and even has input and output minijacks for pedals or CV/Gate controls... very hip! I'm looking forward to trying it out... stay tuned, and hopefully I'll see some of you in Nashville next week!
