Swap overlays (Available separately) to change from music, writing, gaming, and more. USB or Bluetooth means the Morph works anywhere. Experience a new level of expression with 20,000 pressure sensors at your fingertips. Whatever your passion, you can make it with Morph.
The Morph is a Composite USB Device, so it always acts as a MIDI, Keyboard, Gamepad, Digitizer, Mouse and Serial Communication device, so it can send events to the appropriate output based on the overlay layout and mapping.
Precise tracking: 19,425 (185 x 105) individual pressure sensor elements (aka “sensels”) at a 1.25mm pitch, that can interpolate to provide even more precise tracking
Highly sensitive: each sensor can distinguish 30,000 distinct levels of pressure, ranging from 5g to 5kg
Extremely fast: full resolution mode of 125 Hz (8ms latency), with a high speed mode of 500 Hz (2 ms latency) used on the Drum Pad Overlay
On-the-go power: micro-USB rechargeable lithium ion polymer battery, rated for about 4 hours of continual use
Versatile connectivity: Bluetooth LE, USB, Serial (enabled with Developer's Cable)
Hot-swappable overlays: overlays are automatically recognized by the Morph, so you can easily swap them on the fly
Infinitely customizable: you can assign functionality and settings for all the areas of your overlays. Want more customization? The Overlay Designer tool allows you to easily create a custom layout with a drag-and-drop interface
Go deep: our API allows you to get the raw pressure and location data, force image, and contacts
The legendary expressive controller, the Buchla Thunder, now comes to the Sensel Morph in an exclusive new partnership with Buchla U.S.A.
The Buchla Thunder Overlay exclusively features a new preset system to the Morph. By holding the preset button and tapping on one of the nine numerical keys, you can easily and instantly switch between nine mappings without needing to open the SenselApp. Need to go from an instrument controller to a virtual mixer? Want to swap between scales? Presets add a seamless extension of expressive control possibility to the Buchla Thunder Overlay.
The Buchla Thunder is uniquely well-suited to a variety of instruments - from synthesizers with rich and evolving timbres, to acoustic samples that benefit from a more “human” touch, to hardware synthesizers like the legendary Buchla Easel. You can witness the richness of expression in the videos above.
The MIDI protocol is USB Class-compliant and supports MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) and Bluetooth MIDI.
