Wave Idea Bitstream Pro
Wave Idea is a French company offering the Bitstream Pro, a universal MIDI controller with 35 knobs, 8 sliders and 8 buttons. This gives you plenty of hands on real-time control of any MIDI gear you may have. And with 3 different user setup snapshots, you can have up to a total of 144 assignable controls at your fingertips. From MIDI mixing to tweaking various parameters within your favorite soft-synths from Reason to the Giga-Sampler. It can be rack-mounted or used on your desktop.
Its software which is used to assign MIDI parameters to each knob and slider is currently available to Windows and Mac users alike. It ships with preset configurations for tons of soft and hard-ware based synthesizers. After assigning MIDI controllers and/or SysEx messages to the Bitstream Pro it can be used stand alone. Even without a computer, the Bitstream can be configured via SysEx, albeit, much more difficult. Settings can be permanently stored and recalled on your PC. Its unique built-in LFO is a great feature for modulating any MIDI parameters you choose and can be synced to internal or external MIDI clock sources. The LFO and variety of control surfaces make for an excellent and professional MIDI controller.
