KMI unveils the K-Board Pro 4

KMI is currently looking for backing from investors for the MIDI keyboard controller.

The device is USB powered and class compliant to ensure both portability and compatibility with Mac OS, Windows, iOS, and Android.

Hardware and software developer Keith McMillen Instruments has unveiled the K-Board Pro 4 – a four-octave MIDI keyboard controller that is MPE compatible.

The new device is a new kind of keyboard controller that feels and responds like a musical instrument. It features multiple dimensions of touch sensitivity in each key, and thanks to its familiar keyboard layout, players can seamlessly transition from a traditional piano performance to a brave new MPE world — without changing their natural technique, but with the added ability to take total control over the character of their sound while playing.

MPE is the new standard for advanced expressive instruments. It’s a new way for electronic music controllers like K-Board Pro 4 to communicate with favourite hardware classics and cutting-edge soft synths.

K-Board Pro 4’s silicone keys’ resilience, durable aluminium frame construction, and no moving parts ensures KMI’s trademark durability.

The device is USB powered and class compliant to ensure both portability and compatibility with Mac OS, Windows, iOS, and Android, as well as MIDI-capable hardware.

“We wanted to reclaim all of the powerful synth parameters that you can rarely access in performance and put them under your fingertips where you can play the heck out of them! Start with the familiarity of the classic keyboard and make it more responsive to take advantage of multidimensional expressivity,” said founder and CEO Keith McMillen.
