Thanks for the advice! Yes I think the xylosynth definitely feels better than the malletkat, and it’s a lot easier to navigate the menus on the instrument. It also is just a truly gorgeous instrument!

Special Commission for Balafon player Alastair Eilbeck from the UK (left in photo, Will Wernick on the right). We’ve called this the Balasynth…. This 15 note instrument is set up in a pentatonic scale C,D,E,G,A (but being MIDI you can always retune). All the usual Xylosynth features apply such as octave shift etc. The keys are slightly longer (165mm) but the same width as the Xylosynth keys (46mm). So far Alastair says he loves it and is looking forward to travelling with it on his motorbike!
