There is a NEW MATTE Finish on the
keyboard, it is not the previous glossy black finish, the glossy finish
is no longer available
The Fatar Numa Professional Keyboard Interface sets a new standard in musical control.
88-note Fatar Numa was designed by synth guru Axel Hartmann (Andromeda,
Access), putting the emphasis on playability rather than control. To
this end, it features a progressive hammer action simulating the feel
of a full concert grand piano.
The Fatar Numa also features an
'intelligent dynamic system' that enables players to quickly and easily
set the keyboard up to respond perfectly to the way you play. Control
of the Numa is via a touch-sensitive panel, and a graphic LCD display
is included to give you visual feedback.
The action features WOOD EMBEDDED
keys like a concert grand piano. The double dipped, full-body solid
black keys have a tactile surface that is a pleasure to play.
The 88-note graded hammer action, heavier in the lower end of the keyboard to progressively lighter at
the upper end perfectly balances response and momentum in the most
inspiringly pianistic action ever found in an electronic instrument.
Numa looks pretty sleek
and features an aluminum cover that can slide back to give you space
to put your laptop or other control surface on top of the keyboard. A
removable, transparent music stand is included too.

Intelligent Velocity Response
The StudioLogic Numa does not just
good to play, it was
better to your playing than any other controller
keyboard too. Fatar have developed an 'Intelligent Dynamic System' for
the Numa, which guides you through a simple process to set up the best
dynamic velocity response for your playing. It is the most advanced
customisable velocity response system ever developed. The Numa will
memorize custom velocity curves for up to 15 different players.
There are three different dynamic modes:
Dynamic Mode: Response like an acoustic piano. Notes are triggered
at the bottom of the key travel and released at the top of the key travel.
There is a choice of 'soft', 'medium' or 'hard' factory velocity curves
or one of the 15 user velocity curves.
Organ Mode: Response like an organ. Notes are triggered near
the top part of the key travel, but released near the bottom of the
key travel. Velocity is fixed at 127.
Staccato Mode: Ideal for synthesizer sounds. Notes are triggered
and released at the bottom of the key travel. As per dynamic mode, there
is a choice of 'soft', 'medium' or 'hard' factory velocity curves or
one of the 15 user velocity curves.
MIDI and Performance Control
A standard MIDI port allows the Numa to be connected to an enormous
range of instruments, sound modules and other devices for creating sound.
A USB port is also built-in and this allows connection to a personal
computer. When connected to the Numa via USB, a computer will receive
MIDI data, and this allows virtual instruments and MIDI sequencing software
to be used without the need to purchase a separate MIDI interface.
While intentionally not going overboard on controller facilities, the
Numa does provide the following useful performance controls:
Keyboard Aftertouch: Channel aftertouch allows MIDI data to
be transmitted when extra pressure is applied to any key whilst held
down at the bottom of its travel. Either MIDI aftertouch data or controller
numbers 0-127 may be transmitted. Positive or negative polarity may
Controller Wheel: A progressively illuminated wheel may be assigned
to pitch or MIDI continuous controllers 0 - 127. Positive or negative
polarity may be set.
Two Pedal Inputs: Either continuous, open switch or closed switch
style pedals may be connected and used with the StudioLogic Numa. This
allows use of volume / swell type pedals, sustain pedals and standard
on/off footswitches. The pedals may be assigned to controller numbers
0 -127 and a positive or negative polarity may be set for their operation.
Four Keyboard Zones
Up to four keyboard zones can be assigned on the StudioLogic Numa to
allow for comprehensive keyboard splits and layers.
There are numerous independent settings per zone: MIDI channel, key
range, dynamics mode, aftertouch enable/disable, wheel enable/disable,
pedals enable/disable, program change, bank select (MSB & LSB),
volume, octave shift and transpose.
Easy Control System
A new 'Easy Control System' has been implemented for the StudioLogic
Numa. The user interface panel has been developed using touch-sensitive
technology and the graphic LCD display allows for clear and efficient
Stylish, Strong, Lightweight and Practical
The StudioLogic Numa is built to a high-standard from semi-translucent
polished ABS with an aluminum cover. This elegantly designed cabinet
is strong, but of lower weight for easy transportability. The aluminum
cover can be slid backwards to increase the top surface of the instrument
to support a laptop computer, control surface or another keyboard. The
Numa also comes with a removable transparent music stand.
