MIDI Conversion Technology for Bass & Guitar

NOTE: We will be making major changes to this page very soon (Date: 22 Nov. 2016).

The Industrial Radio Midi Bass is a hybrid bass guitar and MIDI controller able to connect to and control synthesiser and sampler technology via MIDI.

Both bass guitar and MIDI controller, the Industrial Radio Midi Bass gives you the ability to plug into and accurately control hardware and software synths and samplers direct from the bass. Now you can double your natural bass tone with classic, synth bass sounds or trigger any kind of sample or synth sound you can imagine.
