Kenton Electronics | Control Freak Studio Edition


The CONTROL FREAK STUDIO EDITION has been designed to allow live, real-time editing of MIDI parameters and has a vast range of applications.  With sixteen programmable, professional-quality sliders and sixteen programmable buttons, it may be used to edit synth & sound module parameters, adjust sequencer controllers or to create versatile lighting effects - all in real-time.

Live editing is not limited to turning small knobs on your old analog equipment.  With the Control Freak Studio Edition, users can adjust parameters via MIDI! Each slider or button may generate controller information, sysex, notes, program change, pitch-bend or aftertouch, allowing instant control of up to 16 parameters. Editing is simple with the aid of a backlit LCD display and easy to use interface. Just imagine being able to directly control parameters such as VCF, pan, and pitch-bend. Editing the Freak is now easier than ever. The Virtual Freak Software Editor for Windows PC is available for free.

Velocity As with a piano, the harder you hit a key, the louder the sound, unlike most organs which always produce the same loudness no matter how hard you hit a key. Aftertouch Pressing a key after you activated it. Channel Aftertouch, no matter which key, it will send a Channel message. Poly Aftertouch, sends the pressure per key instead of the whole channel.
Values for OSC, LFO, Filter, Envelope are per voice unless stated otherwise.
