Keith McMillen Instruments K Board Pro 4

Keith McMillen Instruments has announced the availability of their new K-Board Pro 4 MPE keyboard controller. K-Board Pro 4 has Smart Fabric Sensors under each key bringing five dimensions of expressivity to your playing. Configured like a traditional keyboard, KBP4 gives you a familiar playing surface to start expressing yourself immediately.

Keith McMillen:

With K-Board Pro 4 we’ve taken the format of a traditional keyboard and updated it for the 21st Century. With our SmartFabric™ Sensors underneath each key you can tweak any synthesis parameter in real time by moving your fingers while you are playing. The MIDI MPE Standard is the future for expressive controllers and we have designed the K-Board Pro 4 to be the ultimate MPE Controller.

Jaron Lanier, computer scientist, visual artist, and composer of classical music:

It’s the only MPE controller that you can just play like a keyboard that has a definite attack but also has all of the continuous dimensions.
