Feeltune Releases The Rhizome

Feeltune has finally released their Rhizome Plug-In groove machine, which first debuted to much fanfare at last year’s MusikMesse.

Feeltune Rhizome

The Rhizome is a hybrid in which you install virtual instruments and effects in the Windows VST/VSTi format. Once installed you can mix your plug-in with the mixing desk; create your sequences, patterns and tracks with the multi modes and multi tracks sequencer which is the brain working behind the scene.

The Rhizome is not just a keyboard PC hybrid, like the failed Open Labs products, it claims to be a real musical instrument which has been designed for both performance and composition.

Feeltune uses RME technology for I/O and contains four 24 bit LCD displays, as well as 16 dynamic pads and 32 endless knobs. Factory installed is Windows XPE, which is a version of Windows XP Pro that has been redesigned and compiled especially for Feeltune. It claims to offer a better stability and a total compatibility with VSTs. The Rhizome is the first instrument to totally implement CopperLan a new communication protocol.
