Five Dimensions of Touch

Tips & Tricks: Sliding on the Seaboard surface

Sometimes the tactile surface of the Seaboard surface can lead to the temptation to press further in than is necessary. Try out a few different presets and experiment with applying pressure to the Seaboard keywaves, lightly and consistently, before gently increasing pressure to explore how this affects the dynamic of the sound. You might not have to press as hard as you think!
