GSi releases a double MIDI controller
Following the two-tier form of a 5 octave organ, the GSi DMC-122 can function as a complete MIDI control surface.
With its robust construction of iron, brushed aluminium and hardwood, GSi has aimed the DMC-122 to be the centrepiece of creativity in the studio, functioning as a dual keyboard controller, dual manual organ controller, as well as a fully functional MIDI mixer. Its comprehensive features include 20 drawbars, 6 potentiometers, 1 encoder, 22 buttons, 1 multiple button, pitch bender and modulation wheels, and 5 octaves worth of “waterfall” key beds with aftertouch. On the back panel, the DMC-122 is further equipped with 4 individual MIDI outputs, 1 USB-MIDI connection, 2 inputs for continuous pedals, an assignable sustain pedal input, and an additional USB port for powering other external devices.
To ensure it can be integrated into any DAW configuration, the DMC-122 comes with a software editor application for Mac OS X and Windows. This gives the user the ability to edit every single control and store complete setups as presets, along with three custom velocity curves.
However, the DMC-122’s musicality doesn’t stop at mere MIDI control. The software editor can function as a stand-alone audio engine as well, providing an authentic emulation of a Hammond B3 organ. Additionally, with the available DSP expansion card, the DMC-122 can function as an entirely stand-alone instrument.
