What are the differences between K-Board and QuNexus?

QuNexus vs K-Board - Feature Comparison

K-Board is our entry level expressive keyboard controller. Priced at under $100, it's keys feature per-note velocity with global pressure and tilt.  

QuNexus is an advanced MIDI composition tool, with the same form factor and feel as K-Board, but with much more. QuNexus supports MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE), allowing independent tilt and pressure control in every key. With MIDI and Eurorack connections, QuNexus can control several different synths simultaneously. And with the three step sequencer and arpeggiator, you can quickly sketch ideas, jam, and perform with or without a computer.

Both devices have the same form factor, and are unbreakable and ultraportable by design.

Both devices are USB powered, and work out of the box with any music software on a computer or tablet.

Both devices contain touch sensitive Smart Fabric sensors under every key, to allow expression when you play.
