KMI is seeking Kickstarter backing for the K-Board Pro 4, a four-octave MIDI controller with multiple dimensions of touch sensitivity.
K-Board Pro 4 is a new kind of keyboard controller that feels and responds like a musical instrument — with all the nuance and sensitivity that makes an instrument musical.
Most electronic musical instruments available today are constrained to physical controls consisting of little more than on/off switches. While musicians have drawn an impressive amount of creative expression out of simple switches, these limited interfaces lag far behind the possibilities for subtle control offered by modern synthesizers.
Enter K-Board Pro 4 – a new kind of controller that feels and responds like a musical instrument, with all the nuance and sensitivity that makes an instrument musical. K-Board Pro 4 is a four-octave MIDI keyboard controller with multiple dimensions of touch sensitivity in each key. K-Board Pro 4 is MPE compatible, sending attack velocity, release velocity, continuous pressure, horizontal position, and vertical position data to offer the deepest level of expressive playing.
Thanks to the familiar keyboard layout, you can go seamlessly from a traditional piano to K-Board Pro 4 without changing your natural technique – but with the added ability to have total control over the character of your sound while you play.
Under each key of K-Board Pro 4 is KMI’s patented Smart Sensor Fabric technology that is at the core of all our MIDI control surfaces. Resilient silicone keys and no moving parts ensure our trademark durability.
K-Board Pro 4 is USB powered and class compliant to ensure both portability and compatibility with MacOS, Windows, iOS, Android, as well as MIDI capable hardware.
