It’s my first post, but I couldn’t find something similar in the forum, so I’m hopefully not asking something that has already been asked.
I saw the Morph at NAMM for the first time (I believe I saw the kickstarter video before and somehow ignored it for some reason before). It is what I have been dreaming for years! and this is an understatement.
Let me tell you about my small journey;
I have been trying to build software and hardware instruments since 2006, and for the last few years the sensors for what I needed was the bottleneck.
I have tried everything from piezos to flex sensors to force pressure sensors for the instrument that I would like to build. Here is a version with piezos:
I’ve been trying to recreate a midi version of hangdrum, but with simple midi and sensors the nuances had been lost.
Now I feel like with MPE and Morph all the nuances can be captured, and beautiful and expressive instruments can be created.
My only concern is that the Morph is small, and the surface is flat, instead of having a slight curve. It would be awesome if the sensors were some sort of a rubbery pad that I put on top of the instrument body I would create, and then program the rest.
I know this might not be feasable at all to a lot of people, but I truly believe that there might be a market for such a version.
The problem with most of the digital instruments is that up until roli, the expression was lost and for me I constantly miss the feeling of truly playing an instrument.
Thanks for your time!
