Haken Audio Slim Continuum In-Depth Review

[embedded content]

In his latest loopop video, synthesist Ziv Eliraz takes an in-depth look at the Haken Audio Slim Continuum, the latest version of Dr. Lippold Haken‘s expressive Continuum synthesizer.

The Continuum is a unique synthesizer that’s designed to capture a full range of expression, giving you independent polyphonic control over any attribute of your sounds. Each finger is sensed continuously in three dimensions, so you can do things like pitch bend single notes, play microtonally and have complete control over the timbre of your sounds.
