A MatriX mechanical grid controller with a huge board of lit keys emerges from the Midiphy workshop.
Midiphy are the developers behind the LoopA V2 and Midibox (MBSEQ V4+) MIDI sequencers that are distinctive through their use of LED backed mechanical keys and beautifully designed interfaces. They’ve just started posting images of their new project – MatriX – and it looks amazing.
Information is sketchy at the moment but it looks like a matrix-style sequencer similar to the Yamaha Tenori. However, it doesn’t appear to be stand-alone. It appears to be a controller for their MBSEQ V4+.
MatriX will be available as a kit that you build yourself. All of the essential hardware elements will be available from Midiphy for €1,249.99 and then you’ll need to source the common components. You’ll have to factor in the price of the MB SEQ V4+ also available as a kit for €699.98.
These two kits together form a serious project and a very interesting way to interact with “one of the best MIDI sequencers on planet Earth.” Midiphy says it’ll be available early 2021.
