Poly Chromatic "Keyboards"?

Do you have 1 or have you used 1?

What are your thoughts?

I think that the ios and touchscreen devices are heading into some really cool new directions.

Frankly, I like it better that "microtonal"

I am much more into colors than fractions because how my brain works anyway.

    i'm not sure what you mean by polychromatic keyboards. do you mean Iso-morphic ? Like the Ableton Push2 or the Launchpad Pro ?
    i use the pro myself and its amazing.

    I actually use it along with 2 k-boards. keep in mind it needs the cck3 + a battery bank to be portable.

    21st century electronic instruments (multidimensional polyphonic controllers) including the Tonal Plexus, Roli Seaboard, Continuum Fingerboard, and Microzone U-648, from a microtonal perspective for example.

    The Tonal Plexus and Microzone are multidimensional, polyphonically, at the level of the musical pitch language itself, expanding the chromatic language, exponentially, into a greater pitch-resolution (alphabet) dimension of polychromatic languages. Pitches can be played polyphonically in both the left/right chromatic dimension and the front/back polychromatic (color) dimension. The Microzone has polyphonic touch sensitivity and the Tonal Plexus does not, yet the Tonal Plexus layout allows a pitch programming of up to 211 pitches per octave while the Microzone U648 enables up to 72 pitches per octave.

    Ok. that flew completely over my head lol. I can safely say its beyond my ability to understand how to play it. i'm stumped enough with 12 pitches an octave.

    I agree - not easy stuff.

    There is a color coded method, that is not all fractions which I am interested in.

    I am guessing through generative apps we will all find it more "normal" to use and hear these new sonic areas and then start to use them more ourselves

    Our brains have more new stuff to hear yet................................

    lol. the k-boards have a hold function. i use them to control 2 seperate appregiators running in different times. that sometimes feed into a single synth. i have thumbjam scale locking their input to my desired scale as well. sometimes i use them to also control different sets of octaves. like one from c0-c2 and the other c3-c5.
