Haken Continuum Fingerboard.

Postby jkhuri44 » Sun Oct 16, 2011 1:53 pm

Anyone own one of these? would like to get one...in the next few weeks...but want to see what they feel like, and also whether or not i can play anything half decent on one before i drop the price on one...

whats in it for you? case of beer, and putting up with me for an hour or so? i reckon it's a catch.

I'm guessing you've seen this (Dream Theatre - Octavarium Live), but if not have a watch for sure. There's lots of close ups of Jordan Rudess' fingers playing it, gives you a really good idea of what sort of texture and feel the surface of it has.

Also, if you have an iPad then he's made an app called MorphWiz that does a similar thing. Obviously isn't going to be as good or as cool as the Continuum, but its pretty fun, and could be pretty useful live.

Hi there,

I think one can buy a nice modular fpr the same cost as the Haken !
Morphwiz is the way to go !

I had a play with one in schneidersladen in Berlin and the novelty factor wore off pretty fast. Much more fun from all the other toys on offer there
