The new B4D drawbar controller is an ideal addition to NI's B4 organ, giving direct access to every important parameter of the software for a true-to-life organ experience.
The B4D controller features nine mechanical drawbars, two rotary knobs and 22 buttons, giving direct access to every important parameter and function of the software. While the nine drawbars of the B4D can control any of the three drawbar groups of the B4, the upper panel of the controller gives access to percussion, rotary speaker, vibrato, chorus, overdrive, volume and preset selection.
The B4D controller casing is built from solid metal and real wood, making it rugged as well as aesthetically pleasing. The controller is equipped with a MIDI-I/O and additional inputs for a parameter pedal and two additional foot switches.
The B4D controller is connected to the computer via MIDI and gives instant access to all B4 parameters without any configuration hassle. Two or more controllers can be chained together via MIDI to provide simultaneous control over more than one of the B4's draw bar sets.
The B4D controller will be available in June 2004 at a suggested retail price of $ 449 / 399 Euro.
Furthermore, a "B4 & B4D Controller" bundle will be available, combining the B4 organ with the B4D controller in one comprehensive package. Also included is the "Vintage Collection" tone wheel set, which expands the B4 with additional organ models. The B4 & B4D Controller bundle will be available at a suggested retail price of $ 559 / 499 Euro.
