It makes sense to gauge demand for a product before you actually go ahead and make it, and that’s exactly what Keith McMillen did with the QuNeo. Launched as a Kickstarter project, this touch controller easily got the funding it required, and has become one of the most talked-about MIDI/OSC controllers of the year.
Each of the QuNeo’s 27 pads, sliders and rotary sensors is pressure, velocity, and location sensitive and offers multi-coloured LED feedback, giving you an enormous amount of control.
There are presets, templates and scripts for many of the top music production and DJing applications, or you can set the device up to suit your requirements.
A triumph, then, for both entrepreneurial spirit and good design.
