Sensel Morph is an interchangeable control overlay for a highly sensitive surface. Each overlay has its own RFID which tells the control software what the overlay does and its particular mappings.
With full MPE capability is can be very expressive. Shown here is the new Buchla Thunder layout - Sensel are working in partnership with Buchla on this.
Each of the 27 areas of the Buchla Thunder Overlay transmits a dedicated note and can be used with any instrument that accepts MIDI input. The technology can go even further with the growing number of instruments that support MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE). With MPE, each individual note of an instrument has its own values for velocity (initial touch force), pressure, pitch bend (based on the horizontal or x-position), timbre or slide (based on the vertical or y-position), and liftoff (how quickly the finger is lifted) – allowing for playing of electronic instruments that rivals, and even surpasses, the expressive qualities of classic acoustic instruments.
