Live setup​

 

I have been working on this instrument since 2014, as an attempt to have a satisfactory piano sound when the acoustic instrument was not present in a venue. The initial idea rapidly evolved towards a pianos+synths+effects+loopers workstation. 

The design guidelines are tailored to my specific needs:

  • Keyboard based,

  • Each parameter is bound to an individual physical controller,

  • The laptop is not used as a physical controller, only (rarely) as a visual reference for the presets.

The instrument is constantly evolving. In particular, the next version will have an improved portability with the realisation of a smaller prototype and a computer embedded in the instrument. Touch screens will provide visual reference and additional control of the loopers.
