Vibe Bar

A MIDI controller to impart pitch bend & vibrato using your playing hand

A short demo using the Vibe Bar with Logic’s ES2.

Setting the pitch bend range to 3 semitones lets you accurately bend to any of those intervals using combinations of the left/right & front/back movements.

The Claude Controller


The Claude Controller is a MIDI device able to control over 60 parameters in real time. The ‘wheels’ are arranged like a 3-octave keyboard (with an extra back row). This arrangement means it’s quick & easy to locate particular wheels at a glance independently articulate 5 at once with your left hand fingers.
