Re: New PolyAT controller from the makers of the VAX77

I am in for the 96-key version. Those guys did a great job on the VAX77, it was just too expensive for the market. A 4 octave version for $400? Wow....

New PolyAT controller from the makers of the VAX77

The Infinite Response people are coming out with a new PolyAT controller at a price significantly less than the original VAX77:

I have a VAX77 and love it, but 96 keys for $700 might be impossible to resist!

Re: Polyphonic Aftertouch As A Modulation Source

I was one of the Kickstarter purchasers of the QuNexus; I thought it was a really well-made, functional piece of gear, but in the end I just couldn't warm to the small pads.

KMI does sell a separate MIDI Expander for the QuNexus; for $45.

Re: Polyphonic Aftertouch As A Modulation Source

The QuNexus does have PolyAT- you just need to be comfortable playing small pads instead of regular-sized keys. CME makes the X-Key in two and three octave versions, which have full-sized (though shallow) keys with PolyAT for a similar price.

Re: Hi forum readers, Solaris owners and waiting listers

Re: Hi forum readers, Solaris owners and waiting listers

Well, at least you guys won't have to wait as long as some of the "pioneers!" I have had mine for more than a year, and it is the centerpiece of my studio. I still feel like I am just scratching the surface of it, there is just so much to it. That, and my day job keeps getting in the way....

Re: Subtle noise impurities apparent

I think that problem occurred with exactly one Solaris, which had been subjected to rough shipping.
