SoundForce is coming to Maker Faire Rome 2015 on the 16th/17th/18th October. To my italian friends or anybody attending the fair, come to my booth (V7) to have a chat and try the SoundForce controllers (SFC-Mini included!!).
SoundForce is happy to announce the SFC-101, a custom MIDI controller for the TAL-BassLine-101 software synthetizer (model of the Roland SH-101 : http://kunz.corrupt.ch/products/tal-bassline-101).The SFC-101 is not “just” a MIDI controller, it offers you a complete and unique hardware experience within your software environment. The intuitive layout makes it easier and more fun than ever to play your software synthetizer.As with other SoundForce controllers, the SFC-101 is a class-compliant USB MIDI device that can be used with any other MIDI-mappable software. The SFC-101 can be pre-ordered now for 249 euros in our store. The first units will start to ship mid-july. SoundForce controllers are hand-made in the Netherlands (see how they’re made : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8I7vGNzxQI4). The open-source Arduino compatible firmware is available to all users on our website.
For more information see the product page.
A new step sequencer function is included in the new firmware version of the SFC-60! The firmware files will be soon uploaded on our support page along with a how-to update tutorial. In my opinion, this new feature is totally cool. Here is an overview of how it works :
Today 3 SFC-60’s are leaving the SoundForce headquarters. 2 are going to Berlin, 1 for a customer and 1 for a reviewer of Beat.de (big German electronic music magazine). Another one is going to another reviewer of a the main local music production magazine here in Holland, Interface. This will hopefully spread some good words about the controller.
Other things… working on a very cool new feature for the SFC-60 firmware, more on that next week. And a new prototype board is coming friday of a new product! Exciting.
