Bitstream 3x Super MIDI controller

CME’s MIDI controller Bitstream3X is the result of co-operation between CME and Wave Idea.   The suffix ‘3X’ stands for 3 Axis because the Bitstream offers full control over the 3 Axes – X, Y and Z.   A joystick gives you 2 axes control (X and Y) while a ribbon controller is used for the Z axis.  With its 35 knobs, 8 Sliders and 16 Buttons, Bitstream 3X gives you total hands-on control of any DAW software. It comes with 13,000 presets including Reason, Live, Reaktor, Traktor,Absynth and, of course, Cakewalk.  Digital DJ’s will love the MIDI Cross fader and the 8 track motion sampler allows automated recording of the movements of the knobs, joystick, crossfader and ribbon controller.
