MidiKarval updates B4 Controller to v1.2
MidiKarval has released version 1.2 of B4 Controller, a VST midi processor for Native Instruments B4 II (or the B4 previous version).
Changes in B4 Controller v1.2
- New GUI.
- Inverted Keys – “Upper Manual Only”: if you active this function, the “Inverted Keys” function doesn’t work on the lower keyboard, but on the upper only, so that you can use the whole range of your lower keyboard, eventually in the “Pedals/Lower Split” mode.
- Pedals “Coupler” And “Staccato”: when the “Pedals/Lower Split” function and the “Ped./Lower Coupler” function are active, using the “pedals octaves” of your keyboard you can play in unison the pedals and the lower manual, as many great jazz organists do. Moreover you can choose to make the pedals sound “staccato” (like an upright bass, whilst the “meat of the bass” comes from the lower manual sound).
- Now you can activate/deactivate the B4 Controller’s functions directly clicking on the black labels with your mouse’s left button (whilst clicking on such labels with the right buttons allows to change the value shown on each label).
B4 Controller is available as a VST effect plug-in for Windows PC for 15 EUR. A fully functional demo version can be downloaded from the product page (15 minute limit, then you need to reload the plug-in to use it).
