This arcade-style MIDI controller will take command of your synths and plugins

Miclop Electronic has announced a new MIDI controller called the Ctrl Boy via its Facebook page, and it will be hitting Kickstarter in December.

With a design not too dissimilar to those beautiful arcade machines of old, Ctrl Boy already has presets for soft synths such as Massive, Omnisphere, FM8, Diva, Sylenth1, Iris 2 and others.

So far there is little other information, but we'll have more news for you when it becomes available.

  • Specialised MIDI controller for synthesizers and plugins
  • Unlimited number of mappings
  • Quick access to whatever parameter
  • High precision 14-bit encoders
  • Compatible with relative encoders
  • CC and NRPN deliveries

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
