Storks is a prototype for a high quality MIDI and OSC controller with 16 smooth encoders and 8 mechanical keyboard switches, a small screen and a menu encoder.

The hardware and firmware was made by Mads Kjeldgaard.


  • 16 smooth (non-detented) endless encoders. Used to dial in values.
  • 8 mechanical keyboard switches. Used to trigger notes and other events.
  • 512 “virtual” encoders, meaning many different values can be controlled via different layers.
  • OSC over ethernet
  • A small screen to show state of controller.
