The world's first soft 3D touch interface!

The CMG is a MIDI controller that connects to a computer to create music using DTM/DAW music production software. It uses the world's first soft 3D touch interface (*). This new performance tool supports a variety of playing methods. The product name, "The Cell MUSIC GEAR," reflects the idea that, "the interface surface brings you in contact with the cells of the digital world."

Sounds can be controlled by touch, from the palm of the hand to the fingertips, so musicians who are "tired of current electronic instruments," or are "seeking unique styles of self-expression," will enjoy discovering new performance expressions. In addition, the source code of the software that drives the CMG will be open-sourced, allowing it to be customized to create unique versions of the equipment.
