impOSCar2 Controller Exists Too 


 Synthproject.de provided the inspiration and Kent Spong  - one of the most trusted synth restoration experts  and Vintage Analogue Synth specialist Rich Lawson, came together to form Touch Digital Controllers - their first project was to create a dedicated hardware controller to match the power of the impOSCar2. Quality components and durability are the keywords with the aim to be used live or in the studio.

Features:

 

101 control inputs comprising; 83 knobs, 7 led lit buttons, 2 punch in/out switches and 9 momentary buttons with 9 linked led, midi in/out led, MIDI-in and 128 channel simultaneous USB and MIDI out processor.

The 101 panel controls are all voltage controlled components so give the player the highest possible resolution into the digital domain. 

Beautiful custom made aluminium knobs – old school vibe!

The custom made USB/MIDI processor is the first commercially available 128 channel device in the world.  To reduce costs (and size) we wanted this processor to be able to handle the maximum number of MIDI cc channels possible on a singe board. 

 

Its not intended to be a low cost, mass produced unit this is quality build with heavy gauge steel panel and is priced at £749 + tax.
