The Eigenharp range has been designed specifically for live performance. They are the most expressive electronic musical instruments ever made. Developed by British company Eigenlabs over 8 years, the Eigenharp redefines everything we have come to know about electronic instruments.
The musician can play and improvise using a limitless range of sounds with virtuoso skill. The Eigenharp can play and record loops, change key, transpose, alter tempo, program beats, switch and layer sounds, all while the musician is performing live on stage. The Eigenharp Tau is the newest addition to the Eigenharp portfolio, filling the gap between the ultra-portable Pico and the professional level Alpha. Around the size of an electric guitar, ideal for gigging. At less than half the price of the Eigenharp Alpha, the Tau brings the enormous expressive potential of the Eigenharp to within the reach of any musician. The Tau has a minimalist contemporary aesthetic, available in black and silver finishes.
With 72 playing keys, a strip controller and breath pipe it can do almost everything that its big brother, the professional level Eigenharp Alpha, can do - it uses exactly the same software system. Its keys are amazingly sensitive, to within a micron, the wavelength of light. Like the Alpha, it plays a limitless range of sounds.
The Eigenharp Tau retails at £1899 inc VAT and will be available to buy on the Eigenlabs website from January 14 2010, shipping starts 10 May 2010.
