Introducing MRCC - MIDI Router Control Center by Conductive Labs

Launching March 14th at SYNTHESTHESIA 2021, Conductive Labs are taking pre-orders for MRCC - a new take on the MIDI router - Shipping April 2021 at an MSRP of $429 USD.  

Portland, Oregon. March 9, 2021: Conductive Labs does it again! First it was The NDLR, an innovative Multi-part Polyphonic Sequenced Arpeggiator. This time they are reinventing the MIDI router! The MRCC (MIDI Router Control Center) is a fresh approach: one button for each of the inputs and outputs and a color OLED display means no PC needed for configuration. Simply select an input, then pick which outputs to route to. It’s super quick! MIDI merging is automatic. Status and activity are displayed on a color OLED display and per-port RGB LEDs. More advanced features such as filtering, channel mapping, MIDI tools and MIDI effects are configured with an on-board graphical user interface. When your performance setup is complete, save it for recall later.

Crammed with Features

MRCC has a ton of input and output options: good old 5-pin DIN connectors, trendy 3.5mm TRS (in both MIDI A and B flavors), USB host ports to connect “modern” USB MIDI class compliant controllers and sound modules for DAW-less jamming, and a USB MIDI interface device port for your PC or Pad, great for playing several stand-alone soft synths, or connect to your DAW and plug-in instruments. There’s even a CV Clock output for your modular gear.


User Centered Design

The MRCC was designed for crowded desktop music spaces. Its narrow form factor and vertical connectors ensure the best use of valuable real estate. An aluminum enclosure gives it stability and durability. It will look amazing amongst your favorite gear.

Need some MIDI outputs by your rack? The optional MRCC Remote 7 is a slick way to replace a bunch of long MIDI cables with a single Ethernet cable up to 50 feet away.

We haven’t forgot about those 19” racks either! 2U rack mount ears are also available.
