USBtribe has introduced the MIDIbit – A USB and DIN MIDI i/o interface for the littleBits Korg Synth Kit.
Here’s what they have to say about the video demo:
A demonstration of the MIDIbit’s outputs. First we connect to the ‘Note’ output and playback a sequence from Ableton. Then we add ‘Velocity’ control and modulate the Filter bit cutoff. Next we use the ‘Mod Whl’ (Modulation Wheel) output to automate the Filter bit cutoff, whilst triggering the Envelope bit from the ‘Gate’ output.
To finish up, we connect a Sequencer bit to another Oscillator bit and a Delay bit and use the ‘Clock’ output to drive the Sequencer bit, stepping it in sync with the computer sequencer.
Pricing and availability are to be announced, USBtribe says it’s ‘available soon’.
