The Intuitive Instruments (formally Dualo) company has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund production of the Exquis, a expressive MPE controller that features a hexagonal isomorphic keyboard, MIDI In/Out, CV/Gate out for controlling analog gear, and a variety of configurable controls.
The Exquis features 54 expressive pads, 4 clickable endless knob controllers, a touch slider & 6 configurable buttons. The pads give you continuous per-note control over pressure and pitch.
The Exquis application – available for Windows, Mac OS, iOS, Android, Linux an Raspberry Pi OS – is designed to be the perfect companion for the keyboard, as well as a MIDI-compatible DAW.
At only ~200€, it's one of the cheapest MPE controller available on the market.
Their Kickstarter campaign is already a success, with already +145k€ gathered. The campaign will end on Sunday the 13th of November at 17h CET.
