KEYBOARD

By Elliot Elder

A software/hardware combination remaps a custom built QWERTY keyboard into musical scales, taking both the tactile qualities from mechanical keyboard switches and the expressive freedom and customizability from MIDI piano keyboards. Designed alongside software to either be used as a tool for production or run in the background as one types, the Keyboard is for both typists and musicians. The tool provides a fresh means of inputs for existing composers stuck in melodic ruts as well as open up the opportunity for experienced typists to become QWERTY virtuoso pianists.
