MIDI Control Box with 16 Rotary Potentiometers

Description: from the site:

You control your soundcard, your software  synthesizer, your MIDI expander still with your computer screen and mouse ? Real controllers are much easier to operate than virtual ones. Nearly all sound cards, expanders or software synthesizers allow the external control of their parameters via MIDI controllers. So far the price of control boxes - indispensable for each user -  stood in flagrant contradiction to the price of the software or sound card.

These are the most important Pocket Control features:

  • compact MIDI control box with 16 rotary controls (rotary potentiometers)
  • silver-grey solid metallic housing
    dimensions: about 17x7x4 cm
  • 128 presets with useful assignement of MIDI events to the 16 knobs (e.g. current software synthesizer, XG controller, 16 x volume on the 16 MIDI channels and so on), for nearly each application there is something 'on board'
  • the following Midi messages can be generated:
    any controller, after touch, pitch bend, common RPN resp. NRPN controller, as well as most of the current GS and XG controllers resp. XG SysEx messages (free programmable SysEx messages are not possible, this feature allow e.g. Drehbank or Regelwerk).
  • the MIDI channel can be set for each control separately (of course all knobs may transmit on the same channel too, any combinations of MIDI message and MIDI channel are possible)
  • preset selection via DIP switch at the rear panel or via incoming MIDI program change messages on the MIDI master channel
  • snapshot button with blueLED display
  • MIDI In with merge feature: incoming MIDI data are merged to the MIDI data generated by the Pocket Control. Merge function can be turned off with the editor program
  • MIDI Out
  • the editor program (PC version) enables the user to program his own 128 presets. This means that you can define the function of each of the 16 controllers in your own 128 presets. You no longer depend on the factory presets ! The program can be downloaded free of charge from our internet site - e.g. to test the programming possibilities before you purchase the Pocket Control
  • external AC adapter for power supply (AC adapter for 230V AC and European type of mains connector is included, adapters for other voltages or other mains connector types has to be purchased by the customer in his country, 7...12V/100mA DC required)
  • price: Euro 139.00 DM (i.e. about US$140.00) incl. 230V power supply with European plug type (the exact price in US$ depends upon the exchange rate between Euro and US$ at the payment day)
  • English Pocket Control manual is available as pdf file.
