Doepfer’s R2M MIDI Ribon Controller allows users to generate CV signals depending on where their finger is placed along the ribbon. The unit is capable of outputting both MIDI and CV/Gate signals simultaneously. Additionally, the unit can control both MIDI and CV/Gate gear, making it an extremely intuitive and versatile controller for any setup.
Very precise and sensitive position sensor (length 50 cm) that responds even to light finger touch
Sensible pressure sensor located below the position sensor
Connection to the control box via 4-pin cable (same as used for USB connections but no USB function )
Cable included, length 1m (longer cables are available at extra charge, a standard USB cable type A-A can be used)
Control box receives the analog resistance data coming from the position and pressure sensor of the manual and converts these information into Midi date resp. CV/Gate voltages
""Trautonium"" mode: in this special mode only a single note on message is generated when the position sensor is touched. After that only pitch bend messages are generated until the finger is lifted off.
12 bit pitch bend resolution
MIDI channel, control change number and pitch scale can be adjusted
Quantization option, i.e. only certain notes resp. control voltages (e.g. only major or minor notes) are generated, for details please refer to the A-100 quantizer module A-156 as the quantization of the R2M is very similar.
Adjustable manual scaling (i.e. which length of the manual corresponds to one octave, full length is max. 5 octaves)
Inverse scaling is possible (important if e.g. the manual is put on with a strap)
