SoundForce is trying to crowdfund its SFC-Mini 'Minimoog controller'

We told you about the prototype version of SoundForce's SFC-Mini - a dedicated control surface for software Minimoog emulations such as Native Instruments' Monark and Arturia's Mini V - earlier this year, and now the company is attempting to bring it into production via a Kickstarter campaign.

This USB-powered class-compliant device comes with presets for both of the aforementioned plugins, and is also compatible with the iMini iPad app. All of the most affordable early bird €165 pledge deals have now been taken up, but a number of €179 pledge options are still available.

The SFC-Mini is offered in a choice of four colours: white, red, orange, yellow green and blue. If you're willing to pay top dollar, there's also a special edition wooden finish laser-engraved version for those who pledge €209 or more.
