Kenton Electronics Pro-Kadi

Pro Kadi
User Rating

PRO-KADI interfaces with almost all drum machines. Cheaper than a retrofit and just as effective, it can be used with the TR-808, TR-606, CR78, CR8000, Wasp and many, many more. Most drum machines do need a small modification to run with this interface. Kenton can supply and/or fit sockets kits to interface your drum machine with the PRO-KADI. Kits are available for the TR-808, TR-606, CR-78 and CR-8000, Simmons SDS-5 and 7.

This multi-mode MIDI trigger unit is highly configurable and capable of driving up to 13 outputs. Hundreds of other control applications exist, such as lighting control, robotics and ignition of small explosives for theatre productions. Please email us if you have a specific MIDI control project.
