This is a video of NE playing around with their prototype external touch pad for the NEA Pyxis aftertouch system.
“This one here is our test model. The sensor pad has many unique capabilities when interfaced with the Pyxis controller. This video is to demonstrate the percussive effects that are possible with the Pyxis. The tapping effect is created by routing the output voltage from the sensor pad to the vca and vcf. The more of the sensor signal that gets sent to either, the more pronounced the effect. Keep in mind that this is not intended to be a musically coherent demonstration, but a demonstration of the capabilities of the instrument. For more information about the Pyxis, vintage synthesizer restoration, sales, and repair, please check us out at www.NewEnglandAnalog.com.”
