It also works with any Mac that supports Bluetooth 4.0 / Bluetooth Low Energy.

Miselu intros C.24 – The Music Keyboard for iPad

Related: , , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jul 10, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Miselu has introduced the C.24, a two octave wireless music keyboard designed for iPad that provides a truly mobile music making experience.

Miselu C.24
The ultra portable C.24 transforms from a flat protective cover into a piano-style keyboard at the touch of a spring loaded latch.

“The vision behind Miselu is to bring physical interfaces to virtual instruments,” says Miselu CTO Jory Bell. “For centuries society has supported artists by building tools for them and we feel that the iPad is the tool for artists today. With the C.24 we built the perfect match to the iPad in terms of aesthetics and functionality.”

Miselu is utilizing Bluetooth Low Energy to connect the C.24 to the iPad. It is compatible with any iPad music app that supports Core MIDI, such as Apple’s GarageBand, Korg’s iMS-20 and iPolysix, NLog Synth Pro, Waldorf Nave, Retronyms Tabletop and Steinberg Cubasis.

To enhance the keyboard performance the C.24 employs technology that has never been used in the music instrument space before. The semi-weighted feel of the keyboard is created by the use of anti-polarity magnets. Additionally each key incorporates an infrared emitter detector pair providing real time analog position data to track the performance. This optical key tracking technology delivers velocity and monophonic aftertouch more accurately than traditional switches.

The C.24 also provides additional tactile controls in a capacitive ribbon controller that extends across the width of the keyboard. The bar is divided into two regions, each with 32 embedded LEDs for visual feedback. One region is configured to function as eight assignable buttons while the other is designed for analog expression such as pitch bend.

Miselu CEO Yoshinari Yoshikawa says, “I founded Miselu with the goal to build innovative music instruments and I believe that we have achieved that with the C.24. I’m looking forward to seeing it in the hands of musicians all over the world and hopefully inspire creativity.”

Audiobus co-creator and Audanika CEO Sebastian Dittmann says, “I’ve been following Miselu’s progress for more than a year. Having met with the team personally more than once I can tell that they’re dedicated to creating innovative solutions that work and are of actual benefit to the users. I’m looking forward to their first product.”

Miselu is launching the C.24 exclusively on Kickstarter. The funding period ends August 8th, 2013. Various rewards are available to backers, including a C.24 Keyboard from the first production batch for $99 USD.
