The AlphaSphere Nexus Electronic MIDI Controller from Nu-Desine is a MIDI-based controller that features 48 touch and velocity sensitive pads that provide a tactile musical interface for the included AlphaLive software or inside your DAW. The pads are arranged in a spherical configuration of 6 rows of 8 pads. The Nexus has an internal lighting system that changes color in response to its pads. In addition to controlling elements of your DAW and the AlphaLive software, the Nexus is compatible with DMX lighting rigs and VJ software for use as a performance tool. It connects to your computer and is powered via USB

Tactile Interface
Play the AlphaSphere percussively or apply more pressure to unlock another dimension of sound control. The elastic surface provides a haptic feedback that allows you to sculpt and affect the sound, adding a new element to your compositions, productions and performances. While the keyboard has offered a solution for electronic music so far, keys were designed for the mechanism of a piano, felt hammers on steel strings. The AlphaSphere is conceived and designed for electronic music production, composition and performance
Internal Lights
An integrated color changing lighting system responds when you strike or massage the individual pads. Cycle through colors, from blue to green to red, as you apply more pressure to individual pads, or play multiple pads at the same time, offering visuals and feedback. The AlphaSphere firmware is open source under the GNU General Public License version 3.0 allowing you to customize the inner workings of the sphere. Conceive your own original applications for the interaction of light and sound
Notational Arrangements
Consisting of 6 rows of 8 pads, the layout unlocks the potential for you to explore a whole world of new notational structures. Four chromatic scales can be entwined around the sphere or individual scales could be mapped around each row. The possibilities are endless. For example, a major scale wrapped around one row will produce a circle of perfect fifths, while mapping the Harmonic table around the whole sphere allows a whole new dimension for the exploration of notational divisions. Be original with the spherical form, invent a new musical language
