well, I guess I have the privilege to start this brand new forum Very Happy
I asked the administrators to create it at the request that Ken aka MusicScienceGuy sent me via email

Hi,
You perhaps remember me as the guy that is trying to build a Thummer, (the keyboard that Jim Plamondon is working on getting funding for).

I'm been working away hard at setting up a website (google MusicScienceGuy) dedicated to this topic, but it doesn't have a forum. I am wondering if a forum on electro-music is the best place to put up a topic on the subject of making better keyboards? I think the jammer (uses the Wicki-Hayden layout like the Thummer) is the best bet, but I'm willing to discuss other layouts.

The Thummer/jammer can be tuned micro-tonally, but that's not it's main point. I'm trying to see if the whole support system that piano's have around them (ways to play, fingerings, computer-based lessons and a culture of friends, teachers, etc.) can be developed.

To this end I've not only built jammers, but made them cheap and easy to build, and also posted instructions to follow. Is there a group on E-M that would be interested?
Or is there a better place?

Ok Ken, it looks like this is the right place so let's get busy Exclamation
