Endeavour Introduces the Evo
A German company called Endeavour introduces a stylish new keyboard controller called the Evo.
It is a keyboard controller that is connected to a computer via an Ethernet interface, and that communicates via Midi, OSC or an in-house protocol with synthesizers, sequencers or similar. The keys are a special feature: Every key is equipped with a sensor that allows Evo to read the finger position on a certain area of the key surface. Thus, every key offers, in addition to pitch and velocity, an additional level of polyphonic data input that can be used for continuous control of independent notes.
Every key is a fader, controller, a pitch-wheel, a mod-wheel or a button. Everything that previously affected notes equally using controllers and buttons can now be executed with moves of the finger on the keys for each individual note. In the future you will play chords and move one finger to emphasize one single note by changing the acoustic pattern, or to change the pitch regardless of the other notes. Additionally, the function of every single key can be defined so that you can reproduce the MIDI controller on every key. This way, entire octaves can be used for the control of channel strips, the company says.
Pricing & Availability:
Endeavour say they maintain a relatively small, hand-made production series. The Evo can be purchased in their store system (499 and 999 Euro) and is being shipped within the EU and to the United States.
