Personally hate the flat screen trend. Feels as if the designer got lazy in the final stages. But some of the complaints I run across about certain skeuomorphic designs seem valid to me as well.

And although after many years I finally realized the flaws of Buddhism, I still carry those lessons and even still walk some of its tenants and precepts. Particularly in concerning this, desiring a middle ground between the two.
This GUI is enough to keep me from preorder though. (It's also the only reason I don't own Valhalla products.)

You can even turn it into a LinnStrument Mini:

Wow! I had missed that thread.
I hope that Sensel will make a 36" long Morph
and make wider piano keys.

Play these and you will never miss piano keys again in your life. Piano keys are so 19th century...; - )

With my bamboo flutes, my chromatic stones and my temple woodblocks I feel like a Neanderthal.

By an extraordinary chance I also have a violin and an acoustic guitar to feel much less old.

Some say that the music didn't exist before the invention of the current digital synths. Now it is even worse : we should squarely consider as prehistoric the synths which are not MPE !

In fact, before the birth of these guys the world didn't even exist.

Pitiful world !

I don't understand the crowd funding aspect of this. Why does he need it? There's no explanation on his page. He says the bulk of the work is done already and even if he doesn't meet his goal the synth will be released anyway. Just to be clear, I don't think there's anything dodgy about it.

I had one professor postulate a belief that the first melodic instrument was probably the wind blowing through a hollow log.

He’s certainly wrong, the original instrument is the voice...
It also has the most sophisticated UI - a direct brain to instrument interface...

No, before the voice there was the bumslap...
with responsive UI...

I have some idea of what a waveguide is but what is a 'self-oscillating waveguide'? Is it like a speaker cone? Or maybe a vibrating tube...hmm
