Madrona Sound Plane: a beautiful wooden synthesizer

The second batch of Madrona Sound Planes are hitting the streets, continuing the march to redefine electronic instruments. I am a big lover and advocate of the continuum fingerboard, the godfather of this genre. That said, the Madrona has a lot to offer: light, portable, x/y/z resolution equivalence, and housed in a warm, handmade, wood shell. If you’re wonder why you should care, Roger Linn has a great demonstration on his site explaining why this type of controller is such a big deal. With a prototype instrument and a extremely simple synthesizer he creates a very nuanced performance. It’s all about the Z-axis.
