Since 2012, Morningstar Engineering has sought to make MIDI accessible to all through intuitive yet powerful controllers that aren’t bogged down by a ton of knobs and switches.
With the release of their MC6, they placed themselves as leaders within modern MIDI control, due to its ease-of-use, creative programming software and many I/Os all packed into a compact and sleek-looking pedal that doesn’t just enhance the performance of your board, but also the overall aesthetics of it. They’ve since carried this design ethos on to the MC3 and MC8, which are minimized and maximized versions of the MC6. Plus, with their MIDI-controlled Loop Switcher, the ML-5 and their compact MIDI Box, you can heavily expand on the MC-lines already impressive control abilities.
“To be honest, MIDI scared the bejeebuz out of me for a long time. It seemed like a foreign language only learnable by the wisest sonic scholars, but Morningstar proved that I couldn’t have been more wrong. It’s ridiculously easy and fast to set up their units to control your MIDI capable pedals, especially when using their computer software. I also love that you can send MIDI LFOs, which really opens up the creative potential, and on top of that the products just look stellar. Morningstar have officially made MIDI cool again.”
