USB midi controller description

Turn your favorite guitar amp software into a fully functional multi-effect unit! Or control your DAW!
Full control for Ableton Live, Cubase, BIAS Amp/FX, Neural DSP, Amplitube, Blue Cats, Overloud THU, Guitar Rig,
any DAW or software which can handle midi!

4, 8 and 12 button versions are available!
My goal was to create an inexpensive but usable midi foot switch with a pedal input for wah effect for my favorite guitar effect software.
Plug and play, no driver or installation needed. Just plug it into a free USB slot and your OS will recognize it.

Just enable 'ActitioN USB Midi controller' in your software settings and you’re ready to go.


It can send PC (program change), CC (control change) and note messages on any channel.
- PC messages allows you to change presets. LED of the last pressed PC mode button lights.
CC and note messages can be:
- toggle (On/Off): It allows you turn functions/effects on and off individually. The LED indicate the state.
- momentary: momentary  mode  allows you to use non-on/off functions like ‘previous/next preset’, ‘tape deck play’, 'tap tempo' etc. It also can be use to turn on an effect for a very short time (I use auto-wah this way). LED lights while you press the button.
- impulse: send a MIDI message when you press a button. This mode is great to start/stop and change scenes in Ableton Live. LED of the last pressed impulse mode button lights.

Night light: LEDs providing a dim light so you can see the controller in dark environment.

It's 'polyphonic', multiple buttons can be pressed at the same time.

External pedal input: with the external pedal you can control any pedals, faders and knobs. You can connect any standard pedal with a 6.3mm (1/4 inch) stereo jack (TRS), for example Roland EV5 or M-Audio EX-P expression pedal (using this one myself, I can only recommend).

Highly durable still lightweight metal case and buttons.

Almost every software can handle two or more controllers so if you need more buttons just contact me. 

You can find the PC/mac config program in the download section.
