Complete and Easy MIDI Control

The Rocktron MIDI Mate has been designed with one concept in mind; allow the performing musician complete and easy control over their MIDI equipment. The MIDI Mate is an intelligent controller allowing you to send up to six preset changes on six different channels and five control changes while controlling one real-time parameter via a volume pedal ALL AT ONCE. Unlike other "dumb" foot controllers that send one MIDI command on one channel, the MIDI Mate lets you take full advantage of your MIDI gear in programming and most importantly, onstage.

A large seven-character LED screen displays song titles while preset LEDs show which preset is recalled. This sturdy, compact unit houses EEPROMs for memory storage so presets will never be lost (like they can in simple battery-storage controllers).

The MIDI Mate also features a 7-pin MIDI connector, allowing phantom power to be used with a 7-pin MIDI cable, avoiding extra adapter cables on stage. After many years on the road, the MIDI Mate has been proven the most reliable, problem-free foot controller on the market. Rocktron's MIDI Mate has three modes of operation. Mode One is the BANK Mode and allows the user to step through 128 presets in groups of ten. Mode Two is the INSTANT Mode which allows the userto select preset 01 through 99 with only two foot taps. This makes it easy to jump from a lower bank to a high bank with a minimum of scrolling. For example, you can jump from preset 20 to preset 86 instantly without scrolling from bank 2 to 8. - Mode Three is the CONTROLLER Mode which allows the user to program buttons 5 to 9 (top row) to access on/off controller assignments (not presets) while buttons 0 to 4 (bottom row) access presets. This allows presets to be recalled and modified (turn off/on chorus or delay, for example) without the need to switch modes. Very handy!

Super midi processor controller from Rocktron

This Midi Mate is the class of guitar processor controllers. It has three modes: Bank (from which you can choose your processor bank), Instant: (Which gives you simple, direct selection of your ROM or USER presets), and Controller: (from which you can direct your own programming from the controller, very complex, but very flexible and powerful.), Provided you have your controller set properly this controller and midi director gives you access to your presets and saves your value and parameter wheels from an early passing (which can get expensive since they do not last forever. And bench time is costly at processor makers. I use my MIDI Mate with a tc G Force, and once you set your I/O properly, this will fit the bill perfectly. The MIDI Mate is attractively built, handsome, mechanically strong appearing, and comes from Rocktron, which has had a big name in the music industry for many years. So far as I can tell this device is a home run. AnD it is jet black with red LED lighting so it matches Marshall amps and tc G Forces, so its color compatibility blends well with common name equipment. First rate gear in my book.

Great Midi Controller

I use this with my Eleven Rack and it works great for switching between banks and turning on and off individual effects. Make sure when you pick this up you get the 5 pin to 7 pin midi cable. Overall you can have this programmed in about 10 minutes and be ready to rock and roll all night.
