It was quite a day, our first day at NAMM 2010. I was probably most impressed by the new midrange Eigenharp, the Tau. For those unfamiliar with the Eigenharp, it’s a totally original MIDI controller from the U.K. that combines buttons, keys, and a wind controller. The previous two models, the Pico and the Alpha, cost about $500 and $6,000, respectively. Obviously, there was room for middle ground, and at $2,800, the new Eigenhard Tau fills that gap. The Tau is practically identical to the Alpha, but with fewer keys and a less deluxe finish. You can count on EM to review to Eigenharp Tau when it becomes available in a few months. Matter of fact, I can’t wait to get my hands on one!
