Eowave tells us that Ribbon 2 is now shipping and that they have posted a new video overview of some of the features. The Ribbon 2 is a 12-bit synthesiser, CV/Gate controller and USB controller. Here's a description in Eowave's own words...
The Ribbon has a real sound generation section with one oscillator. The sound will be triggered by the position on the 4 octaves ribbon. The ribbon serigraphy offers a chromatic scale of the 4 octaves on the ribbon. The Ribbon is also sensitive to the pressure. The pressure will determine the volume. A tactile tile is dedicated to the effects modulation. Ribbon can be placed on a table or on a keyboard to add continuous play. Ribbon can also be hold like a cello neck or a guitar neck. With a transparent Plexiglas enclosure lighted with a LED (color definable by preset), Ribbon is a modern and visual synth/controller for live.
