THE MC8

OUR FLAGSHIP MIDI CONTROLLER

The MC8 rewrites the rules of hands-free MIDI control, allowing you to connect directly to both 5-pin DIN and 1/4 inch MIDI devices.

With 4 brand new Omniports, you decide whether each 1/4 inch port acts as a MIDI output, Aux switch input or Expression pedal input.

30 dual-paged banks of 8 switches give you quick access to 16 fully programmable presets per bank simply by pressing [B+C] to toggle page.

CONTROL ANYTHING WITH MIDI

As are all Morningstar MIDI controllers, the MC8 is compatible with and able to control any device that accepts MIDI. With the new Omniports, you are now free to also connect directly to 1/4 inch MIDI devices for even more control possibilities.
