2018 was a huge year for growth at Sensel, and with that came more trade shows in early 2019. Three big ones happened in January and February: Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas, National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) in Anaheim, and Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. We had a great time showing off the Morph in all of its glory, with several music demos, video editing, and lots of Innovator overlays that made it easy to jump to different demos. Best of all, we got to meet tons of creative Morph users!
At CES, we put Sensel’s touch technology to the test, showing off integration into displays for phones and even underwater. The Sensel phone was completely usable, the iPhoneX...not at all!
At NAMM, we launched the Buchla Thunder Overlay, our first partner product, created with the legendary synthesizer company, Buchla. We added another award to the Morph’s trophy case: “Best MIDI Controller” from MusicRadar (slide #14).
Tons of videos hit the tubes, and we showed it off to some amazing artists, including a great session with electronic music legend Suzanne Ciani and the prolific video star, Andrew Huang.

We had an incredible amount of feedback, great meetings, and we’re looking forward to new product announcements this year - watch this space!
Protip: you can also check out our sound packs so you can play with our show demos at home.
We'll be showing the Morph a lot more in smaller shows throughout the year. Here's some upcoming dates:
March 15-16: We'll be in Austin during SXSW for the Synth Zone show - an incredible hands and feet on event showcasing some great guitar pedals and synthesizers.
April 26-28th: Workshop at Cycling 74's Expo in North Adams, MA.
May 9-11: Superbooth in Berlin, Germany. Greatest synth show ever!
Hope to see you there!
