Kalichord Strum

The Kalichord Strum is the newest prototype in the Kalichord series, designed to enable keyboardists access to guitar and harp-like strumming and plucking techniques. The plucking mechanism features multiple tines with piezoelectric pickups attached. Audio signals picked up by the pickups are digitized and fed at audio rates into a digital physical string model, acting as excitations to a virtual string. This creates a plucking system that is incredibly expressive, versatile and intuitive.
