With the latest technology in both hardware and software, it seems like anyone today can be a superstar in the music industry. With phat beats and sounds being produced on tablets and smartphones, the digital music production era is well under way. Silicon Valley start up, Miselu, is looking to up the game a bit with their new all-in-one web enabled Android-powered keyboard. The device is dubbed “Neiru” and comes with a 25-key, multitouch display that shows off various applications that aspiring musicians can use to gain access to an array of useful apps. Developer Retronyms will be offering a cool collection of music learning and centric apps that will allow you to produce your own fine quality tunes.
And since the device is built with Android, Retronyms is banking on a number of developers and users to concoct their own custom applications for the device too. In addition to having Android on-board running the device, Miselu will use Yamaha’s Audio Engine series NSX-1 sound chip which supposedly renders sounds as good as the instruments they’re attempting to replicate. The device will also house ports for two MIDI’s, an RCA in/out, two USB ports, an HDMI out and an SD card slot. There’s no word yet on pricing and availability but we’re working on it for you, so stay tuned. Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below. In the meantime, check out the promotional video below along with a quick gallery of renderings of the cool keyboard. » Read the rest
