Dutch designer Nicolas Toussaint let us know about his line of boutique MIDI controllers, sold under the name Sound Force Controllers.
“A couple of years ago,” explains Toussaint, “I started to build a dedicated controller for the TAL-U-NO-LX synth plugin (the excellent model of the Roland JUNO-60).”
“It all started a bit of out of necessity,” he notes, “as I couldn’t replicate the analog synth experience in the box. I missed the touch and the fun of fiddling with the knobs. And so was my first product born, the SoundForce SFC-60,” (pictured above).
Sound Force Controllers currently offers the SFC-60 – a custom MIDI controller for the TAL U-NO-LX plugin, an software model of the Roland JUNO-60.
The custom controller offers a hardware synth experience, with more than 35 controls, while letting you control TAL U-NO-LX in your DAW. And, as the SFC-60 is a class-compliant MIDI device, it can also be used with any other MIDI-mappable software instrument.
Here’s a video demo of the prototype for the SFC-60 in action:
The SFC-60 is available now for 265 Euros.
Toussaint is also developing a custom controller for the TAL Bassline 101 (Roland SH-101 model), demonstrated in the video below:
