The next-generation electronic instrument
The Haken Continuum Fingerboard is an instrument that was born to be as expressive and as rewarding to play as an acoustic instrument. The uniquely designed sensitive and expressive playing surface has been symbiotically merged with its powerful synthesis sound engine to produce a truly unique playing experience. The Continuum is a holistic electronic instrument that puts its player at the heart of a uniquely fluent, gestural and intuitive musical playing experience.
From melodic composition to the avant-garde
The Continuum Fingerboard can give you that edge you are looking for in sound, expression and creativity. We do not say it will be immediate, although the continuum sounds great and is fun and accessible when you first start playing, it truly shines when you treat the learning curve like a traditional acoustic instrument. Practising technique and taking time to build a relationship and understand the Continuum will reward you with amazing performances. The more time you put in, the more the Continuum will give you back. This is what truly makes it a different experience to a traditional synthesiser.
Passion in Design and Build
Designed and hand-built by Dr. Lippold Haken, each Continuum Fingerboard is meticulously constructed by hand for optimal quality and longevity. This again is where Haken Audio separates itself from large electronic music manufacturers. Haken Audio looks upon itself like a handbuilt guitar manufacturer would. Building small numbers and carefully crafting the instrument with love and attention to detail is the ethos of Dr. Lippold Haken. The Continuum is available in full-size (nearly 8 octaves) and half-size (nearly 4 octaves) versions. The recently-released ContinuuMini gives Continuum fans a smaller instrument with a lower price of entry into the Continuum Fingerboard family.
