A Fatar Studiologic SL 990-XP keyboard controller

Fatar is an Italian supplier of keyboards for digital pianos, synthesizers and organs,[1] based in Recanati, Italy.[2]

The company was founded by Lino Ragni in 1956.[3] It patented its own hammer-action prototype in 1989 and introduced the conductive-rubber contact in 1990. The company has since produced both its own "Studiologic" brand of MIDI controllers and other keyboard instruments, supplies keyboards for third-party manufacturers,[4] and manufactures electronic sustain pedals.[5]

In 2008, Fatar released the Numa keyboard controller, which was constructed entirely from acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and allowed the user to define their own velocity curves.[6]
