I just wanted to share some quick updates on how the MC6 MKII production is coming along. We are waiting on some parts that are due to arrive this week. Once received and tested, we will begin pre-orders for the MC6 MKII. The pre-order will help us to better gauge demand and allocate resources. The MC6 MKII will be scheduled to ship around Mid April.
Here are some progress that happened between our last update and this.
MC6 MKII Firmware
The firmware is now complete and tested. We're really excited about it and will be creating some videos on its new features and functionalities.
- 30 Banks of 12 Presets and 2 Expression Presets
- Each preset is capable of sending up to 16 messages
- Wider 24x2 Character LCD
- Faster processor
- Event-based programming
New Web Editor for the MC6 MKII
As earlier announced, the firmware for the MC6 MKII is re-designed from ground up, and hence it cannot work with the current editor. We designed an entirely new editor to work with the MC6 MKII, and we're excited to show it to you. There are more utility functions to help you to interact better with your device.
Programming messages is also easier with a dynamic interface that changes with respect to what Message Type you want to program. We hope this will make using Midi even easier for beginners and advanced users.
MC6 MKII Webpage and Manual
The webpage for the MKII is up.
The manual for the MC6 MKII is also ready and available to view on our website. We'll still be making edits but you can get a sense of how the device works before you purchase.
Price and Shipping
We've decided to keep the price the same at USD229! We've also added some new shipping options for some countries. Shipping to the USA, for example, costs USD15 for regular international post.
Do stay tuned for our next update.
Keep making awesome music!
