Neiru Keyboard by Miselu Is Powered By Android, Ready To Help You With That Next Phat Beat

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.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.
