Product Description

The Keith McMillen Instruments QuNexus re-imagines the portable MIDI keyboard with 25 vividly illuminated, touch sensitive keys that are uniquely interactive and fun to play. Featuring huge performance capabilities in a tiny footprint, QuNexus gives artists and students unprecedented expressive control with smart sensor technology that transmits pressure, tilt, polyphonic aftertouch and velocity.

Portable: Jam Anywhere, Anytime

QuNexus lets you perform or compose songs wherever and whenever you like. Highly portable and USB powered, just load your favorite software synths and piano apps on to your iPad or laptop and jam away in the park or on the go. QuNexus requires very little power and will play all day with an iPad or laptop.

Native: Plug and Play

QuNexus is class compliant and works natively with iOS, Android, Mac OS, Windows, and Linux with no additional software drivers required. QuNexus connects to iPads with Apple's Camera Connection Kit USB adaptor, or to Macs and PCs with the included the USB to Micro USB cable.

Powerful: crank up your performance

Pros are loving the expressive power of polyphonic aftertouch, channel rotation, poly pitchbend, and the ability to incorporate analog synthesizers with Control Voltage (CV). Individual key pressure and tilt sensitivity open up fresh nuance -- imagine pitch bend and modulation built into each key. Keyboardists report that QuNexus' unconventional keys can be played faster and more accurately than traditional keyboards. So, plug in QuNexus and take your synth shredding to the next level.

Educational: Great for students and beginners

QuNexus pairs very well with popular piano/music learning apps such as Synthesia, Piano Legend, Pianist Pro, and Symphonix Evolution). Its portability, interactive light-up keys, and easy use with iOS apps make it a natural fit for students and beginners.

4 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "better midi/cv controller!!"
Overall: im not much into midi controllers myself being that most my studio is all analog gear, but being that i have a modular synth i decided to look into buy a midi/ cv gate controller to be more hands on with my modular. so i stumbled accross the Keith McMillen Qunexus! not only does it look cool & sleek, it also proforms just as good! thr push button pads are high quality, the responce is dead on & the cv/gate outputs are just a gift sent from heaven! for the price & over all review, i would recommend this product to any modular synth guy, computer music guy & to anyone looking for a versatile midi controller to play their music.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
