New Incident Technologies Opho Keys – Modular Controller Keyboard

Keys with AbletonIncident Technologies Opho Keys – a DJ and Producer’s Dream. Keys is the first music keyboard and MIDI controller that’s completely modular, linking together through magnetic technology. You can expand to a full sized keyboard in seconds – without cords – by simply magnetically linking multiple Keys together, and easily breakdown to pack Keys away in your backpack. With 8 hours of battery life you can take Keys anywhere and get nearly a full day of playing.

Keys is built to be compact, travel friendly and durable. We use plastic reinforced with PCB and built Keys on top of a solid metal baseplate to add durability and rigidity. And, at only one pound it’s light enough to bring anywhere. Keys is also fully USB-MIDI compliant and works with iOS and Android devices, along with hundreds of apps such as GarageBand, Ableton, and more, so you can plug in and get set up quickly and easily.

From the stunning illuminated keys to full scale key width, spacing, feel, and velocity sensors, every aspect of Keys was carefully considered by our creative and engineering team. Keys is equipped with next-generation gesture recognition technology so you can adjust octaves and control tones just by waving your hand above the keyboard.

    The August deadline for shipping has come and gone, just like their last deadline. Opho hasn’t given any update or even communication for +30 days. Looking more like a bust everyday.
