Haken Audio Continuum Half Size

Details

The Haken Audio Continuum Half Size is the first 3 dimensional touch controller. It is a powerful MIDI performance controller which provides a touch sensitive keyboard that allows for the most expressive playing. The Continuum allows you to apply pressure, slide left and right, or slide up and down to modulate a sound. The Continuum fingerboard lets you control pitch bend, filter cutoff, vibrato, and volume, all at your fingertips. With the ability to control various parameters with finger movements, the Continuum allows you to expressively play virtual instruments, gathering all the nuances and timbres of the sound. The Haken Audio Continuum changes the way you play, create, and express music like no other keyboard or synthesizer.

Expressive Playing

The Haken Audio Continuum allows you to fully experience expressive playing and performing. It offers you a level of expressiveness not found on other MIDI keyboards, controllers, and synthesizers. Featuring 3 dimensions of touch, the Continuum fingerboard opens you up to a whole world of expressive playing. The Continuum allows you to easily add tremolo, pitch bend, vibrato, and volume changes. Combine different pressure amounts with left and right wiggling, and up and down sliding to unlock a new experience of playing. The Continuum allows you to easily slide between notes for a glissando or vibrato effect, apply pressure to change volume and velocity, and even slide up and down notes to control effects parameters such as filter cutoff. Achieve vibrato and pitch bend with your own dynamic touch rather than using modulation wheels and rotary knobs to control effects. When playing a chord, you can control the volume of each separate note by sliding up or down the pad. Additionally, the 3 directions can be customised to different parameters such as the filter cutoff, volume, and more.

Control External Synths and Software

The Continuum allows you to control both external synthesizers, as well as digital synths via MIDI. This allows you to play your synths like never before. Connect up your synth via MIDI to take expressive control of your synth. You can also split the playing surface of the Continuum into 2 zones, which allows you to have one synth on the right side, and another on the left. Pressure and front-to-back can be configured for any MIDI continuous controller message.

Monophonic and Polyphonic

The Continuum allows you to play monophonically and polyphonically. When in monophonic mode you can choose between legato, re-trigger, and portamento modes to change the way the notes are played. In legato mode, only the first note has a proper attack, meaning you can roll across the keyboard to create a legato effect. In re-trigger mode, all of the notes you play will have an attack. This mode is ideal for playing arpeggios and percussive instruments. The portamento mode allows you to smoothly glide between 2 notes. This reacts to the relative pressure and can create whammy style effects. When in polyphonic mode you have a wide range of control for modulating the notes. The fingerboard allows you to play a chord and adjust the volume or filter of each note by sliding up or down. It also allows you to pitch bend a single note by sliding it across. The Continuum allows you to play 32 notes simultaneously for the internal sounds, and 16 notes via MIDI, allowing enough room for 2 people to play on the Continuum at once.
