SoundForce has introduced SFC-60 V3, is a boutique class-compliant USB-MIDI controller for Togu Audio Line’s TAL-U-NO-LX Juno-60 emulation.
While it was developed in collaboration with TAL, it’s usable with any MIDI-mappable software or hardware.
The SFC-60 V3 is designed to work with TAL-U-NO-LX to optimize the hardware/software integration. For example, all the LED-based physical switches can update their states when a preset is changed in the plugin.
When switching instances on different tracks, the plugin can sync the controller and update the switches as well.
For the sliders/faders, the pick-up or scaling modes (similar to the Takeover modes in Ableton Live) can help avoiding “jumping” parameters. These features require the latest version of the plugin.
The case is made of bent steel and powder coated in black. The front panel is aluminum, also powder coated and screen printed with scratch-proof white, blue and red inks. Walnut wood side panels of 8mm thickness are fitted to both sides of the controller.
Pricing and Availability
The SFC-60 V3 is available on the SoundForce webshop for 349 euros, incl VAT in the EU and 288 euros for customers outside the EU. In the US, Perfect Circuit is distributing the full SoundForce product line.
