currently available midi controller ?

  • Question
  • Updated 3 months ago
It was fun reading about the Behringer midi controllers and third party software for the
Flex 6000 series radios.
But it seems that those midi controller models are no longer available to be purchased.

Does anyone know of a currently available (in 2018) midi controller that someone
has written software for?
Not an urgent need, since I have and like my Maestro.  But it might be fun to try
something with more buttons than the Maestro, if available for experimentation.

Cheers,

Neal

N4PY (?) has MIDI modules in his Pegasus software that will run a number of different models.

SSDR-IOS has drivers available at a very reasonable cost for Behringer CMD & PL1, and Hercules models.

There are other programs that are considering adding MIDI controllers to their interfaces.

Neal, Behringer is introducing a new 2 channel DJ controller called CMD Studio 2A which will apparently be available mid-Aug. Not sure what software compatibility will be versus CMDMicro that has been used with a Flex. Bob

Are you talking about this one that is already shipping?

I guess the next question becomes when one of the software packages will support it?

Ken:  Do you know if N4PY plans to support this?

His website says that Pegasus Plus supports the CMD-Micro and the Studio 2A. The “2A” is available o. Amazon for about $99.

I don’t own one but it looks good.
I have a Hercules DJ2E and CMD PL1, but don’t have either running right now.

They have added a lot of what I want to the FlexControl. Though I would love to see them add support for dual controllers.

Don has been talking about adding MIDI to Slicemaster or writing a separate program to do it, but he is spending a lot of time perfecting Slicemaster first.

I like his concept. If he ever gets it done it will be very slick.

Neal, yeah that’s the one. When I looked at the new units it said they weren’t shipping until 8/18/2018 but guess that was wrong.
