Keith McMillen Instruments QuNeo



QuNeo is a different species of pad controller for electronic musicians, DJs, VJs, and DIYers. While it covers all of the functionality of other pad controllers, QuNeo adds the power of touch recognition in other dimensions. Each of the 27 pads, sliders, and rotary sensors are pressure, velocity, and location sensitive. Even the 17 switches respond to how hard you press. 16 square pads provide 127 levels of velocity response, X-Y location, and continuous pressure.

Two rotary sensors allow you to scrub, trigger, stretch, pinch and play phrases and sound files, manipulate continuous controllers, and more. Each rotary sensor measures angle, pressure, and distance from the center. Nine touch-sensitive sliders can be mapped to fader and effects controls. LEDs within each slider act as VU meters or remind you where you were.

Multi-touch lets you select a length between two fingers to set stereo locations or filter resonances. Tapping a slider can mute or toggle any track or function. Switches are located in smart groupings to select samples, fader banks, and transport controls. Each of the switches can scan up and down through files at speeds variable with your touch.

QuNeo works with USB and MIDI and will communicate with your favorite music software environments right out of the box. More advanced users and programmers can use the development kit and API to create their own code to respond to QuNeo's sensor data. KMI MIDI Expander (sold separately) allows connection to MIDI hardware via a 5-pin connection.

The software editor for QuNeo is available at www.pearl-electronics-support.com.
