Kadabra has many out-of-the-box features integrated in its core. the important features of a reliable professional instrument are firmly at the foundations of the Kadabra, its technology was tested in hundreds of shows around the world. lets magnify a few of its hardware features:
Kadabra is made of anti-vandal buttons, copper pipes that are carved into the hard wood, rigid snaps and sturdy mechanism with no moving parts and no soft connectors
Kadabra updates and upgrades can be freely downloaded from our site, upgraded using a USB cable with optional hardware upgrades integrated in a click of a button from the main software
Kadabra is Wireless and can be played out on front stage and even in between the crowd without feedbacks or sound quality loss, it uses seamless communication with huge distances and reliability on stage, not wifi, not bluetooth, no latency!
Kadabra is hand held and weigh like an electric guitar, it grants you intuitive control and fits perfectly to you body, the colorful LEDs attached to each key are there to tell you which scale and harmony you're playing, while other LEDs indicate functionality and options, its so simple!
Tribal-Tools are determined to use the finest, most suited components to Kadabra, we create upgradable parts that makes your Kadabra better, perfecting and innovating as a goal.
Kadabra is also an intuitive teacher for musical theories, its smart! it knows a few musical approaches and theories and shows it while you play. it makes composing so easy and clear that you just need to PLAY, intuitive composing that goes directly on stage!
Kadabra is a hand-held wireless multi-instrument, an extension of your body and mind, some would describe it as a shape-shifter - for its abilities to shift between different instruments. Kadabra is not just a MIDI controller, it has a dedicated smart computer program that keeps features like the Sequencer, Looper, and Arpeggiator, always on. The software holds most of Kadabra's magical features, from a simple Sampler to revolutionary features like the Viber, FXer, Preseter, Scaler, Toner and Performer.
Kadabra innovates music, for example the Sequencer and the Arpeggiator (a feature that plays a sequence of relative notes to the note that is being played), can go hyper-relative and match the notes to the main scale or its harmonies, creating mesmerizing melodic arpeggios by simply traveling through scale changes. The Preseter feature lets you assign everything you do in your song to power buttons, for you to reach the most complex live music or to simply follow the harmonies of a song.. the "usual" features are as well not that usual, for example: the Sequencer's loop length can change in real-time, using swift pattern changes gives the player the controls to create the rhythm live and without ANY sound loss.
Kadabra has 12 main inner "shapes" that changes its whole functionality. For example, by pressing a "shifter" button, Kadabra becomes a Looper or a Sequencer! Its smart-LED system shows the actual beat position and the samples that are being played at that position. By holding a different "shifter" button, another temporary "shape" is being activated and the whole Kadabra is now (for example) an Arpeggiator, allowing the player to manipulate its arpeggios or an FXer that controls VST effect plugins in a DEDICATED way.
We are focusing on Mac and PC, and we know that Linux should work but we are not supporting it in all our newest releases. The Installation is fairly simple and require pressing some "next" buttons. a low latency sound-card is HIGHLY recommended for playing normally without the impossible sound generating delay of todays advanced sound VST/AU Instruments. For more advance software sync and communication we recommend downloading any free VIRTUAL MIDI software (Tribal-Tools software can sync IN and OUT to Cubase, Ableton and other software to enhance live playing of multi-layered music without the need of actual MIDI cables).
