Continuing my obsession with computer input devices, especially midi control surfaces…
I happened upon the Numark Orbit today.
- 16 Generic Buttons
- Jog/Shuttle Wheel
- RGB Backlighting
- Wired -or- Wireless (with built-in battery)
The jog wheel makes me think this would be a sweet Instant Replay controller.
There appears to be hope that the backlighting is controllable with control change (CC) midi messages:
- Are jog wheel ring leds controllable? Or, can the absolute/relative setting be changed with midi?
- Are the virtual knob (K1, K2, K3, K4) and pad bank buttons (1, 2, 3, 4) controllable? Or, can the selected bank/knob number be queried?
- Price for used on ebay is as low as $50.
