Jeff Snyder: designer
The Hex-1 consists of 48 touch-sensors arranged in a hexagonal grid, 2 touch sliders, 4 touch momentary buttons and LED backlighting for all sensors controllable from the host computer.
Jeff Snyder writes —
“The Hex-1 is a recent invention of mine that uses capacitive touch-sensing (like the iPod) to provide tactile control over musical parameters in audio or video software like Abelton Live, Max/MSP, Reason, Cubase, Logic, Pro-Tools, etc. It’s a small, portable USB device, that’s bus-powered and fits in a laptop bag along with a laptop.”
The release date is September, 2008.
