Bitstream 3X MIDI Controller Coming Summer 04

Tuesday April 13, 2004. 03:09 PM, by tnecniv Computer Hardware > Wave Idea
Computer Hardware : Bitstream 3X MIDI Controller Coming Summer 04 - macmusicBitstream 3X is the new MIDI controller from Wave Idea, available in July/August 2004. A short preview here: "3X" stands for "3 Axis"; the controller features full control over X, Y and Z dimensions. A joystick allows control of X and Y, while an infrared controller is used for the Z axis. That's just the beginning, though, with 35 knobs, 8 sliders, 16 buttons, an arpeggiator, motion sampler, curve models and programmability, and graphic display. We've got the impressive full specs.

and much more ...

Ed: Truly impressive. I want one. No pricing yet, but for comparison consider the EUR 460 'Pro' model which lacks many of these features, so we can expect a higher price than that. Currently even the Pro is out of stock. Right now there's only a mock-up of what the box will look like, so it remains to be seen whether they'll make the summer release date. Let's hope so; this looks like an amazing controller. -PK
