Haken Continuum in depth review, and what is the Matrix...?


Published on Feb 26, 2018 loopop

"The Haken Continuum Fingerboard is a combination of an extremely sensitive surface and and powerful and complex synthesizer, tailor made to take advance of its expressive sensors. The Continuum has been refined over the past few decades by Lippold Haken, and includes an on-board synthesizer called the EaganMatrix - created by musician and sound designer Edmund Eagan.

This review goes in depth into why the Continuum stands out as a unique instrument and the various ways it can be played. I also explain in detail how its internal synth is designed around using the surface gestures to impact sound design.

The EaganMatrix contains synthesis engines far beyond traditional subtractive and FM synths, and also includes various physical modeling and additive capabilities. Presets using those various engines are shown."
