MC8 MIDI Controller

Sold out
$489.00

The MC8 rewrites the rules of hands-free MIDI control, allowing you to connect directly to both 5-pin DIN and 1/4 inch MIDI devices.

With 4 brand new Omniports, you decide whether each 1/4 inch port acts as a MIDI output, Aux switch input or Expression pedal input.

30 dual-paged banks of 8 switches give you quick access to 16 fully programmable presets per bank simply by pressing [B+C] to toggle page.

Like all Morningstar MIDI controllers, the MC8 is compatible with and able to control any device that accepts MIDI. With the new Omniports, you are now free to also connect directly to 1/4 inch MIDI devices for even more control possibilities.

The MC8 is fully programmable and capable of sending up to 16 different MIDI messages per switch.

MIDI messages can be sent simultaneously, or triggered separately by performing different actions. This gives you precise and customizable control with just one switch.

With its new ergonomically angled chassis, the MC8 offers unparalleled control, meeting the needs of even the most demanding musician.
