Touch Digital Controllers impOSCar2 Controller
Touch Digital Controllers have launched their first product, the impOSCar2 Controller.
This hardware controller was inspired by the GForce ImpOSCar 2 controller by Mario Jurisch.
The controller features 101 control inputs comprising: 83 knobs, 7 led lit buttons, 2 punch in/out switches and 9 momentary buttons with 9 linked led, midi in/out led, MIDI-in and 128 channel simultaneous USB and MIDI out processor. The 101 panel controls are all voltage controlled components.
The custom made USB/MIDI processor is described as "the first commercially available 128 channel device in the world." The processor is configured from Touch Digital to operate the impOSCar2 software instrument across only a single MIDI channel. This was the design brief from GForce but the processor is capable of transmitting simultaneously across 3 separate Midi channels. The impOSCar2 Controller conforms toMIDI protocols so it can be used as a controller for any software instrument when utilising "midi learn," the company assures.
The case has been fabricated from 2mm thick sheet steel which has then had 223 precision laser cut holes applied and then formed to make the design. The panels have then been powder-coated and oven baked for a satin black finish.
The look is vintage: Oak and Mahogany wood end-cheeks and inserts, choice of ebony (satin black on English Oak) or natural (furniture grade) Mahogany…
The impOSCar2 Controller is a MIDI device, and is not dependent on a particular operating system or hardware platform as long as you have a Audio/MIDI device to process external MIDI into your computer or just a USB socket. You will need a USB cable (supplied) or MIDI cable and a power supply for the Controller (also supplied).
The impOSCar2 Controller is priced at £749 UK Pounds (plus 20% VAT for EU customers) and shipping.
