Featuring 48 touch sensors in a 6x8 hexagonal array, the Snyderphonics Manta is a striking controller option for the aesthete electronic musician. Inspired by the arbitrary surface design philosophy of Don Buchla, the controller uses a grid of touch sensors to revolutionize the way the musician interacts with their instrument—using velocity and polyphonic aftertouch to create a completely individual playing experience.
The Manta also includes four touch-sensing function buttons along with two touch sliders to enable even more options to explore. Additionally the buttons and hexagonal touch array feature red and amber user-assignable LED feedback which gives yet another layer of depth and interaction to the instrument.
The Manta produces serial data as a HID device giving the unit absolute flexibility to work with any software of the artist's choice. Use it with a dedicated Max/MSP object, or simply use the appropriate conversion software to translate the MIDI, OSC, and more—thus making the Manta one of the most innovative and interesting interfaces around.
