The Thummer

Here's an interesting looking controller via Music Thing. Looking at the site I oddly found no mention of MIDI, only USB. See quote below. If that's the case, no using this to control my synths. : (

"Does the Thummer(tm)-Brand Jammer Produce Sound?

No, it does not produce any sound by itself. It must be connected to a personal computer (Mac, Wintel, or Linux) — via the prototype's included USB cable — to interpret its player's actions and generate musical sounds. This is very similar to an electric guitar, which needs a separate amp to produce useful sound. Future versions of the Thummer(tm)-brand jammer may include internal music synthesizers, but even then, the Thummer(tm)-brand jammer is so small that it has no room for high-quality speakers, so it would still require an external amp (or headphones)."

  1. Could the lack of MIDI be due to having more than 128 steps (7-bit) of response?
