so $2000 for a 4 voice 3 osc analog polysynth.. yum. Wonder if there is a mod matrix hidden inside you can program over midi?

I do have a boutique JP8. Not that i have had a chance to play with it πŸ™

Right? seems to really kick it. Yet, far less hate compared to the Behringer Model D announcement.

Sorry, no time to play yet πŸ˜‰

Roland Boutique = for tiny fingers 😜

Top job brad, looking good mates, very, very impressive πŸ‘πŸΌπŸΊ

It does sound nice, but those fiddly controls...

This is Bill showing off. He enters some custom chords, the notes of which are mapped to drum samples. Then, turning on the arpeggiator and cycling through the gargantuan amount of arpeggio pattern variations available, starts making the KordBot sound like animal from the muppets!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜› #whatwouldakaidando? ...

Ship him

Legend

He's a nice bloke. I saw him play at a gig for a friend's birthday and chatted to him for quite a bit at the end. He is as much of a tech freak as the rest of us and then some. I do hope that he is going to review the kordbot!

Perfect person to review the KB!

Good, timing is a bit out, how many tracks has the sequencer got please, and how many notes?

ah ok! When its released will there be a set of videos demoing how iit actually works? I know you can play in notes with the 'keys', and assign chords, so there will be a sequencer element, how many tracks will this have and is it polyphonic seeing as you have chord pads?

Adri Rit

... And yeah, your love for those two is what's gonna make me buy it sometime!

Do you have an initial shipping date for the first batch?

Sweet <3

Looking soo good.

Jazzanova πŸ˜‰ sweet jam

It's very difficult to resist playing around and making tunes while I should be doing in depth testing... kinda the same thing though, right?

Looks amazing. What is that software?

You guys should make Kordbot app πŸ™‚

Something planned for future firmware updates that we have been talking about is a Scale teaching mode. Remember the old handheld game 'Simon'? Where lights would light in a sequence and then you had to copy them? This could be a great way to learn scales, so KordBot will play a scale by outputting the midi notes and illuminating the keys, then you have to repeat it.. Just an idea, but could be a good method of learning... ... See MoreSee Less

A great idea, thumbs up!

Yes please.

Obviously, I understand very little about music theory (it all quickly makes my head spin) but was wondering if having the root note shine a little brighter on the keypad be a useful thing ? I like the idea of aided learning though.

Sounds neat

Good!

damn!

Please!!

LEDs are single color, right? if not... multiple scale overlay mode. Wohooo!

Oh and the whole ear training shebang. Chord guessing where you can press the chord modifier as a choice. Maybe with prelit options. Superhard advanced mode with root note modifiers. Guessing the inversions of chords... Intervall training... so many options. With both sequential and simultaneous mode.

A brilliant idea.

Love it!

Awesome idea. It would be also amazing if you could save a melody you wrote and have the keys light up later to remind you of the notes used and the timing/velocity used if you want to do it again. Just a thought πŸ™‚

Great Idea, i support the melody idea aswell , also a cool idea.

Komplete kontrol frm NI has this. Good idea

Can you just add a button that automatically makes deep house.? πŸ˜‚

Great idea! For chords and chord progressions, too! πŸ˜€

Chutch

Perfect! That'll open the doors for schools etc too!

YES PLEASE!

yey yes yes yes...somethiung I have allways wanted, yamaha teching keybaords fail here, the native instruments fail here as well...do it do it!

Sounds amazing!

You could advance that to chords and even chord progressions. That would be some machine.
