The Crystall Ball is a movement based interface that allows intuitive control of machines: MIDI synthesizers or creation softwares.
Faders and knobs disappear and give place to optical sensors sensitive to distance and speed, in order to control samples, effects, lights, videos, etc., bringing a new dimension to computer assisted creation.
Completely programmable, the backlit keyboard and the five optical sensors provide endless control possibilities.
MIDI standards and class compliant, the Crystall Ball is USB plug'n'play and compatible with most software such as Ableton Live, Serato, Logic Studio, Max / MSP. Through a standard MIDI port the Crystal Ball can also control synthesizers, samplers or drum machines.
With optical sensors, the Crystall Ball breaks conventions and bring a new dimension to the man-machine interface.
In addition to unmatched interaction provided by its innovative technology, its unique design allows the realization of performance not possible with current control surfaces such as intuitive and simultaneous control of several notes and / or independent effects.
