plex is a custom-built midi controller that explores musical and visual expression through tactile interaction. plex aspires to enable electronic musicians to traverse themselves through the real-time integration of audio and visuals, which musicians can manipulate from the comforts of the stage. plex diverts the users attention towards tangibly feeling elements of audio and visuals by allowing the user to intuitively explore new realms of musical expression through the sense of touch.
The user interface shifts primary focus away from screens, traditional instruments and typical electronic controllers, using capacitive touch as its main source of user input. The very nature of the capacitive touch sensors allows plex to become a gestural interface, where output data of the sensors is determined by the amount of contact and proximation between the user and the touch surface.
plex has a custom-made PCB and is designed to be simple, gestural and intuitive.
