Musikmesse 2007: Arturia announces Origin Keyboard

Arturia has announced Origin Keyboard, the keyboard version of its first hardware synthesizer Origin.

Origin Keyboard lets you perform and create your music with a "new level of dynamism, control and ergonomics". With a ribbon controller, a velocity and aftertouch sensitive keyboard, a joystick and numerous knobs, Origin Keyboard provides you with the control and playability needed to express yourself fully. The front panel can be adjusted to meet your performance needs, allowing you to comfortably control your sounds in even the most demanding set-up situations.
