MIDI signal mixer unit featuring 8 input connectors
Notes: Merges the data from up to eight separate MIDI sources (e.g. master keyboards, controllers, computers etc.) into a single MIDI data stream which appears at both the MIDI out sockets. Merges all MIDI data including MIDI Clock, MIDI time code and SysEx (see the manual for merging rules). Can also be configured as two completely independent 4 into 1 mergers with the simple press of a recessed button (see manual for details).
Compact footswitch controller for converting 1/4" jack signal into MIDI events
Notes: The MIDI Solutions Footswitch Controller provides a 1/4" phone jack input for connection to a footswitch or contact closure which can be used to trigger MIDI events (for eight footswitch inputs in a single rack space unit, see the MIDI Solutions F8). Triggered MIDI events are merged with incoming MIDI messages and sent to the MIDI output of the Footswitch Controller.
Triggered event types are programmable and include: Note, Control Change, Pitch Bend, Program Change, Start/Stop, System Exclusive
Other functions include: Program Change INC/DEC, Rechannelize, Transpose, Tap Tempo, Note-on Filter
MIDI Echo and Footswitch Toggle parameters are selectable on/off.
The Polarity of the footswitch can be determined automatically on power-up, or programmed to normally-open or normally-closed.
The Footswitch Controller is programmed by sending it MIDI System Exclusive messages (see FAQs - Programming). This can be done easily with the Processors Programming Tools software. Once programmed, its settings are retained even after power is removed. The Footswitch Controller can be reprogrammed with new settings as often as needed.
The Footswitch Controller is MIDI-powered, and requires no batteries or power supply to operate with most MIDI products (see FAQs - Power and FAQs - LED for more information). A MIDI indicator LED lights up when the product is powered and flashes when MIDI data passes through it.
Notes: Compact USB MIDI Interface with 8 x MIDI IN and 8 x MIDI OUT, works Class Compliant without drivers with MAC OSX, Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista, Windows 7, 8 and 10.
The Midiface 8×8 is based on Ploytec's GM5 technology, which means extremely good timing and perfect Sys-Ex stability. When USB3.0 is used for the connection, MIDI flow is further prioritized. This ensures stable and reliable real-time performance for your DAW.
