Learning is how we
I strongly believe that teaching synthesizer as a performance or composition instrument needs a standard MIDI interface and an ergonomic way to shape & control the sound.
The Claude Controller has a familiar keyboard-like layout that can be expanded for more controls. It's also the best way I know to articulate a lot of controls comfortably.
The constant articulation of sound is what makes it appealing to the ear - think oboe, violin or human voice.
I am interested in working with schools & universities to teach this concept and either supply or help students to build their own instruments using the Arduino platform.
Together we can turn the synthesizer into an instrument of great beauty and emotion!
