Drums are the beating heart of electronic music, from classic subby 808 tones to metallic FM percussion, every track needs rhythmn! The MIDI Gates Kit is a modular interface which takes incoming MIDI notes and emits them to one of sixteen dedicated outputs – for trigger control over your beats! Used in combination with a DAW, it’s a powerful drum controller bringing hexidecimal MIDI data into the real world of modular voltages!
Functioning in 16 Channel and 1 Channel modes, it takes MIDI inputs and converts them to output +/- 5V gates to the corresponding dedicated outputs, making it ideal for triggering samplers, envelope generators, synths as well as drum modules. It features a MIDI clock which outputs 16 pulses per beat, a handy reset button and MIDI passthrough for latency free `daisy-chaining` of multiple MIDI devices.
The MIDI Gates comes in kit form and measures 16 HP wide and 25 mm deep, with a skiff friendly design. All elements are included in the kit: PCB, front panel, sockets and board components. Get ready to bring the beat back with full control over your rhythm section, and the ability to trigger numerous other modular elements!.
It ships from the UK, sold by Blinkenlights who have a Tindie store packed with modular goodies!
