The Keith Mcmillen K-Board Pro 4 is a 4-octave touch-sensitive MIDI keyboard controller that offers advanced Smart Fabric Sensor Technology, providing an expanded range of expressive possibilities. This keyboard is designed to give you complete control and a new way to play MIDI keyboards with every nuance you would expect from an acoustic instrument.
Express Yourself in Every Dimension
The K-Board Pro 4 is equipped with Smart Fabric Sensor Technology that allows you to experience expressive playing. Each key outputs XYZ data, meaning you can press down with pressure, slide up and down, and wiggle to change the sound. The keyboard’s traditional layout makes it immediately playable, while its advanced technology provides a smooth feel and a range of expressive playing. Apply pressure to modulate effects and other parameters, bend pitch by tilting when holding, or slide up and down to open the cutoff frequency of an instrument or synth.
Mappable Keys and Sliders
Each key outputs touch-sensitive XYZ position data, which can be mapped to your preferred parameters. Map the movements to vibrato, brightness, or timbre and experience the nuance of every instrument when playing. At the top are four touch-sensitive sliders that can also be mapped to functions such as octaves, vibrato depth, and more. Use these sliders in live performances to quickly switch up a sound without needing to stop playing.
Portable For The Working Musician
Designed with the working musician in mind, the K-Board Pro 4 features a durable aluminum frame that can take the knocks and bumps on the move. It also has no moving parts that are liable to breaking off, making it an ideal MIDI keyboard controller for the mobile musician. The keyboard is USB-powered and easily connects to your laptop or computer, ensuring compatibility with MacOS, Windows iOS, Android, and MIDI-capable hardware.
Ideal for Studio and On Stage
The K-Board Pro 4 is ideal for any scenario, whether you’re on stage performing live or creating music in the studio. It is MPE-compatible, allowing you to play your favorite soft synths or classic hardware synths with a new dimension of expressive playing.
The K-Board Pro 4 MIDI keyboard controller features 48 keys, with Smart Fabric Sensor technology under each key. Each key independently outputs attack velocity, release velocity, continuous pressure, horizontal position, vertical position data, touch-sensitive XYZ position data, pressure-sensitive, velocity-sensitive, and sustain notes. The keyboard also comes with a micro-USB to USB-A cable for easy connectivity.
