The Kommander is designed to be plugged into a CV input on your (modular) synthesizer.
You can move your hand over the device and you are able to control it with your hands, feet or nose.
The Kommander is a handheld dual infrared X-Y motion controller. The device measures the distance to your hand or another surface and sends out corresponding CV signals between 0 and 8 volts. The closer you have your hand to the Kommander, the higher the output voltage. This will allow you to create synth sounds, trigger a drum machine, control your Koma effect pedals or other instruments that are capable of receiving CV signals.
Koma fitted the Kommander with attenuators, which are accessible in the back of the unit. The attenuators connected to the CV outputs allow you to attenuate the maximum voltage output, so you can e.g. set the range from 0V to 5V instead of 0V to 8V.
The first run of the Kommander is 200 units.
- Die cast aluminium box with black metal design
- 2 IR sensors with optical crosstalk
- 4 mini jack outputs (2 x Gate / 2 x CV (one of each per sensor)
- 4 Sensing range trimmers on the back
- Between 0 – 8V CV output (but you can f.i. set the output to 0 – 3V or 0 – 5V as well)
- 9V DC input
Availability & Pricing:
The Kommander is available at Koma Elektronik’s webstore at www.koma-elektronik.com and at selected Koma Elektronik Dealers worldwide for 59.00 EUR / 75.00 USD (incl. VAT).
