Keith McMillen Instruments K-708 overview

  • 1Description

The QuNexus Smart Sensor Keyboard Controller from Keith McMillen Instruments is a 25-key USB MIDI controller that features versatile parameter mapping as well as OSC and CV/Gate support. It is designed to provide expressive control of software instruments, MIDI sound modules and analog synths, for everyone from the beginner musician to seasoned professional.

The QuNexus' 25 "Smart Sensor" keys are designed to give the user comprehensive musical control. The controller detects both the tilt and the pressure being applied to each key as you play, both of which can be mapped to the MIDI parameter of your choosing. For example, key tilt can be mapped to the MIDI pitch bend parameter for applying vibrato to your performances by simply rocking the key back and forth. Also, each key is backlit by its own blue or white LED with 16 levels of brightness.

The QuNexus connects to your computer's USB port allowing you to control your software instruments as well as any MIDI sound modules that are connected to your MIDI interface. In addition, the QuNexus features CV/Gate (Control Voltage) support for controlling analog synth modules that may not have MIDI capability. It also supports the Open Sound Control (OSC) protocol for interfacing with hardware or computer-based instruments that utilize this newer, networking-based method of musical control.

Polyphonic aftertouch allows you to transmit multiple aftertouch values at once when different pressures are applied to the keys
Converts MIDI to CV and CV to MIDI for integrating your analog synths into your MIDI studio
5-pin MIDI I/O can be added with the optional KMI MIDI Expander for controlling MIDI hardware sound modules in standalone mode
Two user-customizable velocity curves in addition to linear, logarithmic, sine, cosine, exponential, and inverted velocity curves
Four onboard presets and dedicated preset button
Designed for plug and play control with no drivers necessary for Mac OS, Windows, iOS, Android, Linux
7 octave range allows for transposition of the keyboard in either direction
Pitch bend pad for adding note bends to your performances
Can transmit separate pressure and tilt data per key
Channel-per-note (channel rotation) functionality

    Keith McMillen Instruments K-708 reviews

    QuNexus Smart Sensor Keyboard Controller is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ultra Portable Controller The pads feel pretty good but the real sell is that this thing is tiny and weighs nothing. For all that the build quality is solid, though I do think there is some small inconsistency in the sensitivity of some of the pads. Not enough to make me return it but noticeable. This is the first controller however that feels like I could just throw it in my bag with either the lappie or an iPad and have an input device at any time. I think it is slightly overpriced for what it is. But it does feel more solid and reliable than the tiny keyboards out there. Recommended!
