Audiofront MIDI Expression

Audiofront has announced MIDI Expression, a USB pedal interface.

MIDI Expression is a very compact class compliant USB MIDI device that allows different types of pedals to interface with your computer. Pedal sensing technolgy built into the device detects the type of pedal plugged in and automatically adjusts its settings to support that device.

MIDI Expression has four built-in configurations or presets–one for expression pedals, one for sustain pedals, one for hihat controllers, and one for footswitches. When you plug-in a pedal, the MIDI Expression detects its type and automatically loads the corresponding configuration. A software configuration application can be used to change a number of settings for each of the configurations including, Chan, CC, and response curve and more. All settings are stored in the device itself for portability.

MIDI Expression features

  • Pedal Sensing Technology detects the type of pedal plugged in and reconfigures the device to ensure optimal performance and compatibility.
  • Graphical preset editor.
  • Editable expression curves.
  • Compact portable design.
  • Class Compliant (no driver required).

MIDI Expression is available to purchase for $49 USD.

Expert Sleepers ES-3 mk2

Expert Sleepers has announced the release of the ES-3 mk2, a new version of its popular ES-3 Lightpipe/CV Interface Eurorack module.

The ES-3 is a Eurorack format module which converts eight channels of ADAT Lightpipe input to DC coupled outputs on 3.5mm jacks, for the ultimate convenience in connection of a DAW directly to analogue synthesizers.

The outputs can be used as control voltages (CVs), for example with software such as Expert Sleepers Silent Way, and can also be used as audio outputs at high, modular synth-compatible levels.

With the ES-3, a single optical cable is all that is need to bring direct CV control from your DAW right into the heart of a modular system.

The ES-3 mk2 adds two headers to the PCB for connection to as yet unannounced expansion modules.

ES-3 mk2 modules are available to purchase for MSRP £159 GBP + VAT.
