Surely we all have a drum machine or synth that we wished was just a little bit more knobby? Well Bastl Instruments have just the ticket for your lust for more knobs...
60 Knobs is a normal MIDI controller with pre-mapped parameters for the Sonic Potions LXR digital Drum machine, but as it is just an open ended MIDI device it can also talk to a lot more hardware and handle lesser used protocols such as NRPN or SysEx.
So now that you've realised you need no less than 60 knobs to control your MIDI hardware you're gonna have to overcome the fact that 60 knobs is a DIY only kit. But at only €158 (ex VAT) you'd be mad not to get the soldering iron out.
60 controller pots independently customizable through the editor;
MIDI messages supported: CC (Control Change), NRPN (Non-Registered Parameter Number), DX7 (Yamaha sysEx DX7);
Button for MIDI DUMP current value of each knob;
MIDI IN and OUT DIN connector;
5 user customizable presets;
Indication LED shows setting changes
FTDI connector for firmware flashing (hacker friendly!)
