Instruments. Eowave Ribbon is not just a ribbon controller!


A MiniSynth Ribbon has a real sound generation section with one oscillator. The sound will be triggered by the position on the 4 octaves ribbon. The ribbon serigraphy offers a chromatic scale of the 4 octaves. Ribbon is also sensitive to the pressure. Pressure will determine the volume. MIDI Solutions Pedal Controller; Continuous MIDI Data Generator. MIDI Solutions Pedal Controller The Pedal Controller accepts an expression pedal (such as the Yamaha FC7 or Roland EV-5 or any potentiometer connected to a 1/4" stereo phone plug) as an input and generates continuous MIDI data based on its position.

MIDI Solutions Pedal Controller; Continuous MIDI Data Generator

The Pedal Controller may be inserted inline at any point in the MIDI data stream, allowing you to send continuous controller information to any device in your MIDI setup. The Pedal Controller's factory default settings are for it to send CC#7 (volume) on MIDI channel 1, so if this is what you need the Pedal Controller to do then no programming is necessary - just insert the Pedal Controller in your setup and it's ready to use.

The Pedal Controller can also be programmed to send other types of MIDI messages, for more info read on... The Pedal Controller can be programmed to send: The Pedal Controller has a MIDI Echo parameter that is selectable on/off. Automatenklavier, by Winfried Ritsch and IEM.
