• One System for
    Many Keyboards

nimbu can be used on many MIDI keyboards with and without automatic accompaniment - from piano to organ. For playing, the keyboard is subdivided by software. Left you play the chords, right the melody.

In the middle you define some keys for control or you play title-related accompaniments with Sync/Stop only. Or you control nimbu directly at the keyboard with a tablet, MIDI pad or as shown in the picture above with a touch screen connected to your PC.

You can also play only with master keyboard. Completely without screen or tablet.


All performance functions can be controlled completely via MIDI or a master keyboard. nimbu switches also the real backlight LEDs, e.g. on a master keyboard, whose display also shows the names of the collection and the session.

The Session Panel for playing with touch screen.  .  .  .  .

Session Panel

The Slow Gospel session here has only one accompaniment (S 1). However, each session can contain up to 24 independent accompaniments. Via this panel, 8 of them (S 1 to S 8) can be called up directly in real time during playing, because they were loaded into the PC's main memory with the session.
Each of these 24 accompaniments can also hold up to 21 markers. Markers are song positions like intro, main etc. that are directly jumped to via buttons when playing. nimbu shows you the current time signature and the playing position within the time signature. You can jump from any accompaniment of a session to any intro, bridge or main marker of another accompaniment of the session. In real time. The instrument setup of the new accompaniment is taken over "on the fly".

nimbu comes with 100 rhythms, divided into 5 genres, which can be accessed via this Session panel. But these 100 sessions are much more than that, as new sessions are simply created from them.

In addition, 5 collections are designed for 100 of your own accompaniments or your own playlists, so up to 200 accompaniments can be accessed via this panel. The names of the Sessions and Collections are set by yourself. And of course you can create as many Session Panels as you want.
