Roger Linn presents the LinnStrument: a MIDI controller that senses three dimensions of touch for expressive musical performance
Electronic music is generally performed on a MIDI keyboard, which consists of little more than an array of on/off switches with velocity, plus a couple of knobs turned sideways for continuous control of pitch and modulation. While this works well for piano-type sounds, it offers poor control over the duration of the note compared to wind or bowed-string instruments. A new class of MIDI controllers called Polyphonic Multidimensional Controllers attempts to solve this problem by offering three dimensions of continuous control for each touch, polyphonically. Typically finger pressure controls note loudness, x-axis movements control note pitch and y-axis movements control note timbre.
