Slim Continuum Review and Tutorial

SLIM CONTINUUM Review – Haken’s amazingly powerful and complex matrix-based synth (Full tutorial)

Slim Continuum from Haken Audio is the thinner and more powerful version of the Continuum. Like the original, it’s what you’d get if a violin or flute and a huge modular setup had a baby – it includes the same sensitive multi-touch expressive surface, and the same powerful internal digital synth engine, called the EaganMatrix, but is thinner, has better connectivity, is more powerful and usable, but more expensive.

In this video I take a look at what makes this instrument special, what’s new, how the synth engine works, and look at overall pros and cons compared to other synths and expressive controllers:
