CHOMPI Sampling Keyboard Kickstarter launches, immediately blows past goal

The creators of CHOMPI, a new sampling keyboard that’s designed to make musique concrète style audio manipulation fast and fun, have launched their Kickstarter project to fund production of the device – and it’s already blown past their project goal.

The goal for the project was to raise $30,000, and backers have already committed over $850,000.

CHOMPI is designed to make it easy to sample sounds and play them back, using a built-in keyboard. The interface provides big, dedicated controls for sampling, pitch, sample editing and effects.

CHOMPI also features a looper, so you can record phrases and play over them, and even overdub layers.

The developers is making CHOMPI available via a Kickstarter project, priced at $499 for backers (normally $599).
