Touchscreen console specialist Smithson Martin has announced a tabletop Midi controller ahead of this week’s NAMM Show, called the KS32. It’s showcased with a Pioneer controller template in the press shots, although it can be skinned with any number of configurations.
The screen is a fast-response, full HD spec, 32″ wide, and the Emulator 2 software that powers the unit works with both PC and Mac (the latter “coming soon”, according to the press release). It will go on sale Q2 2016 at a pretty substantial US$2,499.
“The KS32 provides a comfortable space to give you all the control you need,” says Karl Detken of Smithson Martin. “Choose from the many soon to be released templates for your preferred software, load into Emulator 2.0 and enjoy your creative works of art without fear of having any points of failure.”
