EXQUIS - The expressive MPE controller and intuitive software to produce, perform and learn music. Exquis (pronounced hex-key) is an expressive MIDI controller with a hexagonal backlit keyboard. Compatible with all MIDI synthesizers, modular synthesizers, music software, and optimized for its dedicated app. Complementary and independent, the Exquis keyboard and app provide easy access to sound control and harmony, and propose an efficient workflow to create both live or in studio. Exquis is a concentration of innovations that are useful for musicians of all levels:

● By default, Exquis's hexagonal matrix of keys puts notes that sound good together (thirds) next to one another: chords are built with ergonomic shapes, easy to play, learn and understand.

● The backlit keys allow the player to display any musical scale (or any custom map), guiding the player on the right path. More than 350 scales are available!

● The keys are independently velocity, pressure, and inclination-sensitive (MIDI Polyphonic Expression protocol) ; the silicone of the keys is both firm enough to play percussion and short notes with precision, and soft enough to modulate long notes with sensitivity.

● The unique creative workflow (buttons on the keyboard + app) allows anyone to create a song in rhythm within minutes and very simple gestures : picking a sound, recording loops, and composing songs live or programming them in advance.
