VZtec Dual Control is a powerful little MIDI foot controller with a wide spectrum of possible applications: PC software, multi-effects processors, keyboards, samplers, amplifiers, consoles or any device that supports MIDI control.
It's interface is super minimalist and it consists of only two switches and a display. The controller configuration is done from a PC via the USB port using the Dual Control Manager application.
The USB connection is also used to establish bidirectional MIDI communication with any application that supports it and to provide power to the controller. Additionally it offers MIDI output through DIN 5 port and power via plug 2.1mm. In this way the Dual Control is especially suitable for MIDI control situations with or without a computer.
The Dual Control switches can be configured to perform various actions such as:
Send up to 8 Channel Voice type messages simultaneously.
Send user-specified System Exclusive messages.
Send Beat Clock messages with Tap Tempo.
Simultaneously send up to 8 ADSR curves associated with independent messages and ranges.
Repeatedly sending the ADSR ramp generating a low frequency oscillator (LFO) of MIDI messages.
