Hello every body.
Here is new Ribbon Controller video clip from youtube.

"Ara Mitetanone" by Onoue , Sakamoto & Tateiwa

This is the cover version of 1960's Japanese enka(=Japanese ethno pop) song
which was sung by famous Harumi Miyako.
Our version is arranged with heavy bass and freaky rock style.
I think that the Ribbon Controller is suited for such kind of ethno style music.
I hope you enjoy.

These songs are amazing!
As you say, this etno style is well suited for the instrument

The ribbon controller reminds me of a few app-synths for iPad.
Have you tried BeBot for example?
The touch screen of the iPad makes it possible to control the synth in the same way.

It also reminds me of the touch keyboard synth WASP from the 80ies.
It was real fun synth back then...

Thanks for your comment, dear kikey.
I have not tried Bebot yet. Because I dont have ipad.
But I have checked this video before.
Guthrie Govan "Waves" on iPad Bebot by Zakka - YouTube
This is so cool!

And I didn't know WASP synth. I also checked this on Youtube.

Hi Vongole

Thanks for the links, that Bebot player was really cool!

Last week I was visiting Tokyo and I noticed that 'Book Off' had adverticements for iPad2 for about 28000Y. (but I am not 100% sure it really was iPad2...).
I think it was a very good price and since you live Japan you might be interested...

Back in the 80ies, the synth player in my punk band used a WASP. Unfortunately it was stolen and it was very difficult to replace.
It had a very unique, sharp sound.
