While Brandon admits that he probably SHOULD ask Santa for a new Pro Tools interface, he couldn't help but add this amazing item to his Christmas wishlist after discovering it recently: The Roli Seaboard Grand.
The Seaboard is a radically new musical instrument that reimagines the piano keyboard as a soft, continuous surface. With polyphonic pitch bend, vibrato and per-note dynamic changes all available at your fingertips, the Seabord marries the intuitiveness of a traditional instrument with the versatility of digital technology.
I want this because you can do lots of cool expressive ribbon controller-y type stuff on the actual keys. It's like the 21st Century version of an Ondes Martinot but probably a lot more capable.
