Controller pioneer Yann Seven has strapped two Sensel Morph controllers and overlays from the Joué Play controller to a piece of board to make an intriguingly awesome guitar style MPE controller.


MPE Control

The Sensel Morph and Joue controllers offer a very squishy and tactile way of expressing yourself over MIDI. Yann appears to have harnessed both their technologies to fit the fretboard overlay from the Joué onto the super pressure-sensitive surface of a pair of Sensel Morphs. This is giving him 2 octaves of expressive MIDI action in a guitar string format.

You can create custom templates for the Sensel Morph and specify spaces as MIDI notes and controllers. I imagine that the Joué fretboards are there to give a bit more certainty and accuracy over the placement of fingers as you play – gives you something to fiddle with. But there doesn’t appear to be much in the way of information at this stage.

There’s no doubting Yenn’s innovation or his musicianship as the jazzy improvisation demonstrates. It’s a wonderfully expressive performance and I especially like the fact he appears to be doing it in the shower.
