If anyone has any tips re; this please chime in. Would be very helpful.
Yes, that is indeed the biggest challenge. Really, that's the amazing thing about the real ondes Martenot. It's such an expressive instrument.
I wish I had some more tips about that. I don't own any devices with a ribbon controller or continuous touchpad. I still haven't tried a keyboard with aftertouch, although that would probably be a big improvement. There probably isn't a good substitute out there for the swiveling keyboard. (It's a lot more musical than a pitchbend wheel, but it's actually kind of hard to get used to.)
