LE STRUM – MIDI Strummed Chord Controller Kit
If you could breed an Omnichord with a Stylophone you might end up with some of these babies….
Use combinations of the buttons to select a chord type (maj, min, 7, maj7, min7, dim, aug) and root note. The chord is then mapped across the pads, which you play with a wired stylus, sending output by MIDI.
This is an old idea of mine that I’ve now turned into an open hardware kit, so anyone can make one. The updated firmware has some new goodies like guitar open chord fingerings, chord variations (sus4, add6, add9), two channel lead + chord drone and control over velocity.
