Keith McMillen Instruments QuNeo Pad Controller
QuNeo is a 3D multi-touch pad controller. QuNeo is a different species of pad controller for electronic musicians, DJs, VJs and DIY hackers. While it covers all of the functionality of other pad controllers, QuNeo adds the power of touch recognition in multiple dimensions.
Each of the 27 pads, sliders, and rotary sensors are pressure, velocity, and location sensitive. The 17 buttons also respond to pressure and velocity. The 16 square pads provide 128 levels of velocity response, X-Y location, and continuous pressure for each pad. Each rotary sensor measures direction, pressure and location.
QuNeo is the size of an iPad and can fit in iPad accessories such as mic clips, stands and more. QuNeo works with USB, MIDI or OSC and will communicate with your favorite music software environments right out of the box.

- Features in depth
- Tactile pads, sliders, rotary sensors and switches: each of the 27 pads, sliders and rotary sensors are pressure, velocity, and location sensitive. Even the 17 switches respond to how hard you press.
- LED light feedback: a remarkable illumination scheme combines variably diffusive elastomers with 251 multi-color LEDs, providing visual feedback that is immediately responsive and delightfully informative. Man and machine are coupled through light, feel and sound.
- Trigger pads: 16 square pads provide 127 levels of velocity response. And X-Y location. And continuous pressure. For each pad. Times sixteen!
- Rotary sensors: 2 rotary sensors allow you to scrub, trigger, stretch, pinch and play phrases and sound files, manipulate continuous controllers and more . Each rotary sensor measures angle, pressure and distance from the center.
- Multi-touch sliders: 9 touch sensitive sliders can be mapped to fader and effects controls. LEDs within each slider act as VU meters or remind you where you were. Multi-touch lets you select a length between two fingers to set stereo locations or filter resonances. Tapping a slider can mute or toggle any track or function.
- Switches: the switches are located in smart groupings to select samples, fader banks, and transport controls. Each of the switches can scan up and down through files at speeds variable with your touch, great for quickly locating that perfect fill or telling your looper you really meant it.
- The size of an iPad: QuNeo is the size of an iPad and can fit in iPad accessories such as mic clips, stands and more.
- Class compliant and open source development kit: QuNeo works with USB, MIDI or OSC and will communicate with your favorite music software environments right out of the box. More advanced users and programmers can use the development kit and API to create their own code to respond to QuNeo's sensor data. Hack away to control your world in ways never before possible!
