Miselu have announced the C.24 – a Core MIDI compatible two-octave wireless music keyboard for the iPad that transforms from a flat protective cover into a piano-style keyboard at the touch of a spring loaded latch.
“The C.24 utilises Bluetooth Low Energy to connect to the iPad and to enhance the keyboard performance the C.24 employs technology that has never been used in the music instrument space before. The semi-weighted feel of the keyboard is created by the use of anti-polarity magnets. Additionally each key incorporates an infrared emitter detector pair providing real time analog position data to track the performance. This optical key tracking technology delivers velocity and monophonic aftertouch more accurately than traditional switches.”
“The C.24 also provides additional tactile controls in a capacitive ribbon controller that extends across the width of the keyboard. The bar is divided into two regions, each with 32 embedded LEDs for visual feedback. One region is configured to function as eight assignable buttons while the other is designed for analog expression such as pitch bend.”
