The C15 is an instrument for the performing musician, designed for playability and detailed sound editing. The embedded digital synthesis engine is based on phase modulation, a comb filter, and a feedback structure giving the C15 a unique character and creating crisp, organic, and complex sounds.
As a dedicated real-time instrument, the C15 provides high-resolution dynamic response and extensive sound design possibilities. The C15 is self-contained with dedicated haptical controls, but it can also be extended with a graphical user interface on any WiFi-enabled device running a browser. Read more
