PC44 - Pot Controller
The pot box
PC44 as big brother of the PC4 is a universal controller for all kinds of midi controllable
hard- and software.
The device has 68 standard pots with rubber knobs designed in a 8 x 8 matrix + 4 big knobs, 8 keys and one push-encoder. Various kinds of midi commands like control change, pitchbend, aftertouch and program change are possible. All properties are fully programmable on the devices very fast and easy for each control separately.
Of course you can assign the pots and keys to any of these commands by learning incoming midi commands like software it does. The pots work with standard resolution of 7 bit to have full compatibility to any software and hardware instruments, effects and DAW’s.
Use the internal 64 setups to save your individual settings.
Backup and restore of all settings by sysex dumps is possible too.
The factory settings are perfect to control music and video software products out of the box if they are freely assignable. So any additional device programming isn’t necessary for many applications.
