Da Fact, a French company specialized in the manufacture of instruments exclusively for the digital musical and visual arts, will mark its presence at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt by unveiling Karlax.


According to the company, “Karlax is the first controller to re-establish the artist’s body at the heart of the performance. This instrument’s revolutionary ergonomic design uses the artist’s own natural movements. Its wireless technology (using radio-waves and MIDI protocol trough USB) gives musicians freedom on stage. Its high-resolution sensors offer a finesse of performance and open up as yet uncharted creative waters.”

Karlax provides intense pleasure during a performance as it offers the artist a wealth of very expressive movements which can be accessed in a simple, intuitive manner, ” the company says.

Its sensors are fitted to precision mechanics components. The architecture allows pistons, keys, switches, benders, triggers, a rotation axis and an inertial unit (comprising an inclinometer, accelerometer and a 3-axis gyroscope) to be activated separately or simultaneously. An embedded screen for displaying and editing settings makes it possible to safely leave the computer off stage. With the product comes also a dedicated software compatible with both MAC and PC.

This instrument, which is portable and wireless, is designed to offer artists freedom in terms of performance and expression, both in the studio and on stage. Karlax is designed to allow composers to go beyond using the normal controls for operating and manipulating sound generators, whether in the form of hardware or software.

Since January 2010 Da Fact has joined forces with the PARROT Group (a group working on wireless peripherals for mobile phones) to strengthen its production and commercialisation phase for Karlax.

Pricing & Availability
An initial, limited numbered series has been announced for Q4, for an estimated price of 3500€ (excluding VAT).
