Announcing the SFC-1

By | Main page blog

Not a 1st April joke ๐Ÿ˜‰

SoundForce presents a new model to its dedicated USB-MIDI controllers product line: the SFC-1, a controller especially designed for the fantastic u-heโ€™s Repro-1 plugin. See the SFC-1 product page : here.

Features
With a whopping total of 51 pots, 41 slide switches and 6 tactile switches, you can control every single MIDI-mappable parameter of the plugin in analog fashion. The awesome effect chain is also fully-covered on the bottom section of the controller.

Every control is assigned to a default CC number, but that can be changed using our control panel app in Google Chrome. A shift button unlocks an alternative channel for each pot, allowing you to control potentially 51 extra parameters. Even more user-specific controls are possible with the extra set of user-assignable switches and pots.

Build quality
The enclosure is made of 100% sheet metal. The case is made of bent steel and powder coated in black. The front panel is aluminium, also powder coated and screen printed with scratch-proof white ink. Please note that the final product will have a plain black powder coat, not structured like the pictures are showing. Discrete and minimalistic wooden pieces of 6 mm thickness are added to the sides. Dimensions are: 380 mm x 173 mm x 55 mm (Length x Width x Height).

The SFC-1 is a boutique controller manufactured in small batches in the Netherlands. A lot of operations are still performed by hand and automation is used when possible to improve quality and processes.

Shipping & pricing
The controller will start to ship in June. You can come check it out at Prolight+Sound/Musikmesse in Frankfurt (on Thursday and Friday only, in Hall 8 Booth B10 – Audio Maker Square) and Superbooth in Berlin (Booth O501). 100 pieces will be made in the first batch. The price will be 329 euros including VAT for EU-customers and 271 euros outside the EU. Pre-order now on the webshop.

3 other SoundForce MIDI controllers are still currently available : SFC-Mini (for Minimoog plugins), SFC-60 (for the TAL Juno 60 emulation plugin) and SFC-5 (for the P5 plugins).

We’re 10 weeks away from Superbooth 2019 and the race to finish up the new products has started. This year will be amazing I am sure, last year was totally worth. If you are considering to go as a visitor, you should totally do it if you can.

I will be showing the new mystery controller as well as at least 3 new fully-assembled commercial eurorack modules. And I have a really neat new location, at the beginning of the hallway at the top of the big staircase.

New controller prototype enclosure

By | Main page blog

Update from GRAWART, the prototype enclosure for the new controller is manufactured this week. So far it fits all nicely together. It’s a sheet metal enclosure with aluminum all around. First time doing this, this is an improvement on the previous generations controllers.
