What are the differences between K-Board and QuNexus?

K-Board vs QuNexus - Feature Comparison

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.

K-Board is optimized to have killer features but cost under $100.

QuNexus includes more connectivity for people with a lot of gear. That includes DIN MIDI* and CV connectivity (for hardware synthesizers), and some advanced features related to the QuNexus Controller Layer.
