Default VAX hammer-action keyboard on KickStarter!!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...ard-controller

Infinite Response, the makers of the fantastic VAX77 controller keyboard are developing a (MUCH!) more affordable version of the VAX that they are launching as a Kickstarter campaign.

I'm a supporter and have pledged for a 6-octave version.

Here's what I know so far:

1. Available in 2-octave modules (you can choose C-to-B, or F-to-E ranges).
so 4, 6 and 8 octaves.

2. Will have MIDI din out

3. Traditional Pitch & Mod wheels

4. High-Res 14 bit velocity sensors

5. POLYPHONIC AFTERTOUCH!!!!

6. You assemble to cut some costs (easy).

7. Will resemble VAX77, but not folding.

8. You will be able to adjust tension on keys!

9. Comes with a repair kit & spare parts.

10. All software & hardware will be open source to encourage 3rd party development.

There were some very nice remarks from a happy VAX77 owner both about the keyboard and the company. It's doing well, and will probably 'win' KS.
