Keith McMillen QuNEO

The Keith McMillen QuNeo is a new species of pad controller for electronic musicians, DJs, VJs and DIY hackers. QuNeo adds the power of touch recognition in other dimensions while still covering the functionality of other pad controllers. Each of the 27 pads, sliders and rotary sensors are pressure, velocity, and location sensitive, while the 17 switches are pressure sensitive, reacting to how hard you press. 16 square pads feature 127 levels of Velocity response, X-Y location, and continuous pressure. 2 rotary sensors give you the ability to scrub, trigger, stretch, pinch and play phrases and sound files, manipulate continuous controllers and more.

Each rotary sensor measures angle, pressure and distance from the center. You can map the 9 touch sensitive sliders to fader and effects controls. LEDs within each slider act as VU meters or remind you where you were. Multi-touch allow you to select a length between 2 fingers to set stereo locations or filter resonances. Simply tapping a slider can mute or toggle any track or function. Switches are located in smart groupings to select samples, fader banks, and transport controls. Each of the switches can scan up and down through files at speeds in tune with your touch.

QuNeo is small, only the size of an iPad and can fit in iPad accessories such as mic clips, stands and more. QuNeo works with USB, MIDI or OSC and communicates with your preferred music software environments right out of the box. More advanced users and programmers can utilize the development kit and API to create their own code to respond to QuNeo's sensor data. KMI MIDI Expander (sold separately) allows connection to MIDI hardware via 5-pin connection.
