MakerProducts Intros MidiCard ‘World’s Smallest MIDI Controller’

With so many of your credit and debit cards available digitally these days, you might be wondering if you still need a physical wallet, but if anything’s going to convince us to hold on to ours, It is MakerProducts’ MIDICard.

MakerProducts makes tools for Makers based in Los Angeles, California, United States has introduced MidiCard, a credit card-sized USB C PCB Midi controller.

Said to be ‘the world’s smallest MIDI controller,’ this 18-note keyboard is barely any bigger than your Visa or Amex, but with its class-compliant USB-C connectivity, can be plugged into pretty much any device you like (iPad, iPhone, Android, PC and Mac) and play anywhere.

The tiny 3.5 x 2 x 0.25 inch footprint has been achieved by putting the keys and other controls directly onto a PCB board. As well as being able to play notes you can also trigger modulation and sustain, as well as choose from three different velocity levels. Should you need to extend the range, there are octave up/down buttons. This is truly a full MIDI keyboard in your wallet.

MIDICard V1 generates MIDI information to use with any DAW such as Ableton Live, Logic Pro, or Garage Band. MIDICard V1 does not generate sound on its own.

The first batch of MIDICards has already sold out, but another batch is expected to land on 26 February. You can pre-order now for £50 (£60 if you want the Lightning cable version) via the MakerProducts Etsy page.
