Imagine a piano key that could be played like a string or a horn! The QuNeo Smart Sensor Keyboard Controller gives unprecedented expressive control because Eeonyx’s pressure sensor technology transmits pressure, tilt, polyphonic aftertouch, and velocity. QuNeo’s revolutionary keys can be played faster and more accurately than those of a traditional keyboard. Individual key pressure and tilt sensitivity enable fresh nuance.
“QuNeo is the most important evolution in keyboards since the Erard Escapement was introduced to pianos in 1821,” said KMI founder, Keith McMillen. “QuNeo gives keyboardists forms of expression that were only available to string and horn players. Although playful in appearance, it performs and feels like a serious instrument.”
Instead of sliders, dials and toggles, QuNeo uses 25 vividly illuminated Smart Sensor keys that are uniquely interactive and fun to play.
“We are very excited about the arrival of QuNeo,” said John Grabowski, Senior Director of Merchandising at Sweetwater Sound. “Its innovative design and unique capabilities have already translated into strong pre-order demand.”
Pros love the expressive power of polyphonic aftertouch, channel rotation, poly pitch bend, and the ability to incorporate analog synthesizers with Control Voltage (CV).
“Apart from being a slick, portable USB controller with the unique key tilt feature, QuNeo is a convenient MIDI to CV and CV to MIDI converter, and is extremely useful for integrating my analog gear into the digital world,” said electronic musician, DJ and remixer, Jonah Sharp aka Spacetime Continuum.
“QuNeo is a dope piece of equipment for playing chords and lead lines, and I really like how I can express with the tilt pitch bend and get creative like a guitar or horn player, and do things pianos can’t do,” said pianist, MC and producer, Kev Choice.
“QuNeo is solving a big problem for a lot of laptop musicians who want a really portable, but powerful, keyboard controller,” said recording artist and sound designer, Richard Devine.
