This looks fun...Haken Audio have announced plans for a smaller, affordable version of the rather exclusive Haken Continuum.

Yep, it's certainly a lot more affordable! :thumbup:

I have played a continuum before and would love one but this one looks a bit strange to me, at first I thought it was like one row of a linnstrument but it only supports two fingers, what's the point in that? Unless I am missing something?

I guess you could think of it more along the lines of Eowave's Ribbon, but with vastly improved look, feel and sound engine.

At first glance I thought the guy was wearing it on a shoulder strap which would be cool, before I realised it was just his braces. :tongue:

(Never seen a commercial ribbon synth or controller you could sling across your shoulder. Ribbon synths in general are in very short supply; the ones that do exist, like the Persephone or the Swarmatron, look nice but aren't great for melody.)

...just had a friendly email from Dr Haken to confirm that this new gadget will be strap-ready; he'd already had the request from Continuum fan Éric Mouquet. Looking forward to this.

Tier 1 was gone within hours, and Tier 2 is selling fast.

I agonised about it for a few minutes and had just decided not to, then I saw your post and went for it.

Thanks (I think)...

I think you made the right choice, hopefully.

When it was first announced I wasn't sure if the point of it thinking it was just a controller, I didn't realise it had the Eigen synth inside.

From the kickstarter video it looks like this is also playable over midi.

Got to be a bargain ;)

278 backers with 4 days to go.

It would be nice to reach the stretch goal for 300 backers...go on, you know you need one! New video available...
