SoundForce Controllers, a music production hardware company based in the Netherlands, are becoming known for their hand-made, music controllers that’ll remind you of your favorite vintage synths.
Just two days ago, they released their first two DIY MIDI controller kits. The SFC-60 and SFC-101 are the DIY kit versions that retail for slightly less than the prebuilt models and will require some soldering and electronics skills.
The SFC-60 is a boutique MIDI controller designed for the TAL U-NO-LX plugin, an excellent model of the Roland® JUNO-60*. It can, of course, be used with any MIDI-mappable software instrument.
The SFC-101 is a dedicated MIDI controller designed for the TAL-BassLine-101 plugin, a model of the Roland SH-101. It can, of course, be used with any MIDI-mappable software instrument.
SoundForce tell us that both the The SFC-60 & SFC-101 were “designed to be easy and fun for everybody to assemble. The projects are based on through-hole technology and parts found in other popular DIY projects (Mutable Instruments, xoxbox, , etc.).”
Along with each kit is an assembly guide that takes you through the process step-by-step.
Currently, you can pick up the SFC-60 or SFC-101 MIDI Controller DIY Kits for €199 Euros each. If you prefer the pre-built versions they will set you back a mere €250 each.
