  • Disaster Area Designs Introduces the DMC-6D MIDI Foot Controller

    By HC News |

    Disaster Area Designs is pleased to announce the DMC-6D MIDI Foot Controller.  The DMC-6D builds on the popular DMC-6 controller and adds advanced USB-MIDI functionality and a bright blue LED display.  The DMC-6D is designed to control DAW software such as Ableton Live, Reason, Logic, Mainstage, and more.  The DMC-6D sends MIDI notes that may be mapped in DAW applications for triggering clips or scenes, switching effects, or operating transport controls.  Two expression pedals can send any of 128 MIDI continuous controllers (CC,) and an Expander Switch input allows several choices of extra functionality.  It works with Mac, Windows, iPad, and Linux with class-compliant (driverless) installation.


    The DMC-6D also includes a 5-pin DIN MIDI port for connecting to legacy / standalone MIDI devices such as effect processors, keyboards, and more.  The DMC-6D can transfer MIDI from the PC or Mac to other MIDI devices, including MIDI clock, program changes, continuous controllers, and SysEx.


    The DMC-6D is also available with firmware to control MIDI devices without a computer, and is easy to update the firmware with a USB cable and PC or Mac.
