Logidy has introduced the $49.95 UMI3 USB MIDI foot controller.
The UMI3 features 3 configurable footswitches and an input for an expression pedal, encased in a rugged steel stomp box.
It connects to a Mac or a PC through USB and shows up as a class compliant MIDI device. No driver is required. It is powered through USB.
It behaves like a three note keyboard right out of the box, but can be configured to send many other types of messages to take full advantage of the MIDI mapping features included in most of today’s DAWs. The configuration happens in a friendly setup panel for Mac or PC available for download at Logidy’s website.
The panel can also work as a step sequencer where the function of a given footswitch can be changed each time it is pushed, or when another switch is pushed. Setups can be designed to trigger as many as 24 different MIDI events.
The UMI3 is in stock and available for purchase immediately through Logidy’s website for $49.95 plus shipping.
