The CME Xkey is the answer to mobile music creation. It does not give up the professional performance due to its slim appearance.
When you think of music, Xkey is there for you.
It is an elegant work of art. It’s also a fine instrument that follows you wherever you go. The black and white keys are supported by a cool silver color aluminum panel arching down at the front and a holder hidden at the rear bottom. These silky smooth keys are intertwined with the aluminum grille.
The body of the Xkey is housed into a piece of molded aluminum and it is only 3.6mm thick. Weighing at around 600g, the Xkey is very light. With the slim and light form factor of the Xkey, it will fit in most backpacks. The Xkey has not only inherited the essence of the piano keyboard, it also goes beyond the limits of traditional music keyboard design with a rugged and lightweight design.
Professional Standard Keys
The key layout of Xkey is the same as a traditional piano so that a professional keyboard player will be able to use their finger memories and playing habits. The aluminum grille is used to clearly separate each key in order to ensure that the player can locate key positions while playing blindly on the keyboard. The structure of each individual key is designed in such a way that the entire key moves down at the same level when it is pressed at any part on the key. This design gives a unified sense of touch to the player.
Under each key and button, there is a customized pressure sensor that connects to an intelligent circuit board with high-processing power. The intelligent circuit board produces details of the performances while using very little power. For example, it offers a 128-step range of velocity intensity along with the corresponding polyphonic after-touch control, and up to 16,000-step pitch-bend control.
