Creating sounds unique to you has never been easier, making the Continuum the ideal instrument for both studio and live performance. The Continuum has plenty of features to perform as a standalone instrument, but integration with MIDI controllers, modular synths and bi-directional implementation of MPE+ are sure to put the Continuum at the centre of your studio setup. MPE+ integration means no hand movement goes unnoticed. 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 effect parameters such as filter cutoff.
At the centre of the Continuum is the EaganMatrix, an incredibly sophisticated sound engine designed in tandem with the Continuum. The freedom of the matrix design and deep modulation structure allows for unparalleled integration with the playing surface. The EaganMatrix has very deep synthesis technologies under the hood that contribute to a unique sound creation experience.

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.
The Continuum allows you to control 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 two 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.
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 two 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.
At the centre of the Continuum is the EaganMatrix, a sophisticated sound engine that takes full advantage of the expressive playing surface. This combination of hardware and software has been developed alongside each other, fusing to create the Continuum. This allows complex sound modulation to be assigned and mapped to the detail of your finger movements.
