The controller unit is the 222e Multi-Dimensional Kinesthetic Input Port, a sort of unique keyboard with 27 contact pads. 12 of them react on position in one dimension (the elongated pads L, M, N, O, P, Q, T, U, V, W, X and Y), two in two dimensions (the hexagonal pads R and S). The pads are very prssusre sensitive, ranging from featherweight to very hard pressure.
In the upper part of the 223e module we will not only find the programming unit but also an arpeggiator that can be synchronized to an internal or external clock, featuring a number of running directions, transposition and much more.
arpeggiator: pulse in, CV in. level CV out, tuned CV out, pulse out.

-CV outs 10-15 (location / pressure / impact)
