Matt from KMI responded to the comments on CDM and addressed my concerns as well as a few others:
Wanted to clear some things up/ answer some questions I’ve seen here…
1, We’re already working on seamless software integration… Out of the box, QuNeo will be plug and play– it’ll send CCs and notes just like any pad controller (just more CCs and more Notes)!
2, $200 is the street price. $200 will get you a QuNeo.
3, There are quite a lot of LEDs, we’re almost at the maximum number. It will work with the iPad, though (like the SoftStep and 12 Step) you’ll need an adapter and you’ll have to power it from the wall or from our MIDI expander…
4, As far as mapping goes, the QuNeo will have a “shift” or “mapping mode” button (the blue one, near the transport controls) which will allow for one source to be sent out at a time. The LEDs on the pads will display different colors based on the type of control you are mapping!
5, The software editor will be useful for creating customized mappings. Things like multi-touch functionality will be customizable with the software. The software will not be necessary to use the QuNeo, as it will be preprogrammed to function out of the box.
Also, sorry for the typos– I’ve been working non-stop on this release and obviously missed some stuff, probably out of excitement.
As always, questions can be posted here or e-mailed to Matt@KeithMcMillen.com
I’m looking forward to playing my QuNeo and I’m glad everyone else is too!
