SoundForce releases SFC-8 MIDI Controller


SoundForce SFC-8 MIDI controller might make you believe that you own a real Jupiter-8.

You may never be able to afford a real Jupiter-8, but if you have got a plugin version of Roland’s classic synth and you are prepared to suspend a little disbelief, then SoundForce’s new SFC-8 might make you believe that you do.

SFC-8 is designed specifically to be used with Jupiter-8 emulations – particularly Arturia or Togu Audio Line’s – this MIDI-mappable device draws power and transmits MIDI over USB, but also has a standard 5-pin MIDI port.

And, you can also use it with hardware synths if you wish. MIDI maps can be created and CC numbers changed in the companion control panel app.

The SFC-8 contains five banks of four presets and offers three modes (jump- pick-up and scale). It is assembled in The Netherlands and made from a combination of sheet metal and wood, so it is rather durable.

The SFC-8 joins the company’s MIDI Controllers line-up – the SFC-60 and SFC-5 – and is available now priced at €499 and €412.40 for customers outside the EU.  In the US, it is available via Perfect Circuit for $449.
