For those who love to play keys

The C15 is a keyboard instrument made for performing musicians. Its character stems from a puristic digital engine which produces a unique palette of sounds seamlessly spanning from organic and acoustic to experimental and electronic.

With its top-quality keybed, dual full-length ribbons, special pitch bender, and four pedal connections the C15 is designed for real-time performance, making it more like a traditional musical instrument than a typical synthesizer. It is resolutely an instrument to be played by musicians, not machines. Therefore it has no MIDI and does not contain LFOs or internal sequencers.

Like many classical instrument builders, we have chosen wood for most of the housing. The rest is made of steel or aluminium. The concept features a two-part design. The compact base unit is for playing and includes all performance elements as well as the sound engine and audio components. It can be easily detached from the panel unit and played autonomously.

The panel unit is for detailed parameter control and sound design. Its haptic layout is based on the principle of muscle memory. In addition, a graphical user interface can be displayed and edited on any device that has a browser and Wi-Fi. This interface is optimized for touch screens and can be intuitively zoomed and panned with common gestures.

Please see the Features and Technical Data pages for more product information. If you are interested to buy or to rent a C15 please have a look at the Order page.
