Universal MIDI Control Electronics with 64 inputs, Midi and USB interface
- 64 inputs, alternatively analog (0...+5V, e.g. generated by rotary or fader potentiometers, same as Pocket Electronic) or digital (e.g. generated by momentary or toggle switches/buttons, same as CTM64)
- in analog mode Midi control change messages are generated, resolution 7 bit (Midi data range 0-127)
- in digital mode note on/off or program change messages are generated
- inputs via eight pin headers with 10 pins each (same pinout as Pocket Electronic), 10 pin ribbon cables with suitable female connectors are plugged to the pin headers, the ribbon cables are included with the USB64 (about 30 cm each), the other side of each cable is open to connect the desired controls
- USB and Midi interface (Midi out & Midi in)
- the incoming Midi data are merged to the data generated by the USB64 and both are transmitted to Midi out and USB (valid for all USB64 manufactured later than ~ summer 2010, earlier USB64 can be updated by replacing the main processor by the new type, the price for the new USB64 processor is Euro 25.00 plus shipping).
- power supply alternatively via USB or external power supply (7-15V DC / min. 100 mA) during pure Midi operation without USB (automatic selection)
- The pc board is equipped with a standard low voltage connector ( 5.5 mm outer diameter and 2.1 mm inner diameter, polarity: plus = center, minus = ring).
- basic parameters (e.g. analog/digital mode, Midi channel, Midi note/program change/control change range 0-63 or 64-127 etc.) selectable via jumper
- update of the USB64 firmware via USB (e.g. in case of a firmware update, for this a PC with Windows XP and USB interface is required), as soon as an update is available it can be downloaded from our download page
- control LED
- measures of the pc board: about 160 length x 55 width x 30 height (measures in mm)
- scope of supply: USB64 pc board (completely assembled and tested), eight 10 pin ribbon cables with female headers (about 30 cm each), USB cable (A-B type),
only within Europe: power supply (230V version with European mains connector, 7-15V DC / min. 100 mA
if you order from outside Europe please ask your local dealer if a power supply is included
- For detailed information the user's manual is available as pdf file.
- Remark: USB64 is not suitable for rotary encoders (sometimes even called endless potentiometers). For this appliction the Dial Electronic has to be used as these controls are no real potentiometers.
- Firmware update over USB
- USB compatible with USB Device Class for Midi Device and tested operating systems
WIth a long trajectory building synths, MIDI keyboards and designing bespoke devices for music pioneers Kraftwerk, Dieter Doepfer decided to design his own modular synthesizer in 1995 based on existing electrical and mechanical specifications of lab equipment he used during his years at university. The official presentation of the system at 1996 Frankfurt Musikmesse caught everyone by surprise and created lots of interest. After Doepfer published the specifications on his website, many instrument designers and engineers saw the potential of the new Eurorack format. Doepfer continues expanding their catalog of over 200 modules (and counting), operating from their modest offices in the outskirts of Munich.
