Now available in 10, 16 and 22 button configurations!
The Mastermind GT is the result of years of research and development, using modern technology to create what we believe is the best MIDI foot controller ever made. Our initial prototype shown at the Winter 2011 NAMM Show drew an unprecedented amount of attention from all over the music industry: guitarists, DJs, keyboardists, producers and more. We've made many improvements over that original prototype and are now ready to deliver it to market.
By adding a display over every button, we've made it possible to have a fully configurable MIDI controller. Any button can be assigned to any function, and colors and button text are fully configurable by the user. Buttons can send multiple MIDI messages of several types, and there can be up to 16 pages of buttons so you will always have access to all of the functions your rig has available.
Add in other features such as user upgradeable firmware, USB thumb drive support and built-in support for many popular MIDI devices, and you can see why there has been so much buzz about this product.
Version 3.0 expands the system to 768 presets, adds the ability to set a tempo for each song. Also, new buttons that adjust the preset of a particular device are now available. Page up and down buttons now can have minimum and maximum limits set for them. Support for the Mastermind PBC and Atomic Amplifire has been added, and support for Axe-Fx, Eventide and Pigtronix devices has been updated.
Please see the RJM Forum for the full list of changes.
