Announcing the FaderFox micromodul8 MIDI controller
We are often asked: «What kind of controller do you recommend for controlling Modul8?»
The answer from us is always «one that works best for you.» After a while we started asking ourselves what kind of controller we would like to use with Modul8, and then contacted FaderFox to build it for us. The result of this collaboration is the FaderFox micromodul8 MIDI controller.
The micromodul8´s dimensions are 180 x 105 x 70 mm, weighing 350 g so you can put it in your backpack along with your laptop and it will not take up too much space on a desk.
micromodul8 is USB class compliant and powered by the same port, no drivers are required. It has 3 standard knobs, 4 multi-functional rotary encoders, a crossfader and 36 colored buttons that we have carefully tailored to allow you to access each of the 10 Modul8 layers and a group of 16 buttons that mirrors the layout of the media set. Of the 36 buttons, 32 of them are supplied with an LED light providing the ability to receive feedback.
Functions of the controller will be fully integrated into Modul8 so that it will be easier for module savvy folks to customize controls to their hearts delight.
Pricing will be 249 € and it will be available in the second-quarter of 2013.
One month to win two FaderFox micromodul8 MIDI controllers and 10 t-shirts for the runner-ups!
Show us a video of you, or a willing friend, doing a 30 second testimonial about how much you love Modul8. The Modul8 logo must be painted somewhere on you or your friends body. The two best videos will be judged based the quality of the production and the content.
Submissions are restricted to existing Modul8 license holders only.

We look forward to your submissions!
Best wishes for your dishes!
